Is a Solar Air Conditioner Worth the Investment?

Friday, February 27th, 2015

If you’ve been considering going solar to save energy, you don’t have to convert your entire home at once. Often, you can convert only one of the appliances in your home to solar energy so that you can test the waters but still reap the energy savings. And one of the parts of your home that consumes the most energy and could benefit the most from solar panels is the air conditioning system.

Solar air conditioning is available in Los Angeles through the friendly and knowledgeable technicians at AZ Air Conditioning and Heating. Of course, solar air conditioning comes with a fairly large price tag initially, which leads many customers to ask: is it worth my investment?

Save Energy and Money with Solar Power

We use our air conditioning systems for most of the summer in LA. In many instances, the air conditioner uses up more energy than any other single component in your home. You’ve probably noticed how much your bills shoot upwards in the summertime, due in large part to increased AC run times. But with a solar energy system installed for this component, your bills may not go up at all in the summer.

For most homeowners, solar air conditioning systems save so much energy that the deficit in your bills offsets the initial cost over a matter of years. Solar AC units last longer than other air conditioning systems as long as they receive proper maintenance and careful installation. And solar air conditioning may need fewer repairs over time. In fact, the solar panels likely won’t need any repairs or replacement for decades.

Solar air conditioning is a great investment for nearly any home in which household members run the air conditioner fairly frequently during the warmer months. It may even increase the value of your home, and you’ll be protecting some of the earth’s most valuable resources.

How Does Solar Air Conditioning Work?

Friday, September 5th, 2014

We have a lot of sunny days here in Los Angeles, so it’s no surprise that solar air conditioning is becoming a popular choice among homeowners. There are a lot of questions when it comes to installing a solar air conditioning system in Los Angeles, the most common concerning how a solar AC works. The answer is that it’s pretty simple – and as long as you’ve hired professionals for the installation, like the trained experts at AZ Air Conditioning and Heating, you can enjoy the benefits a solar AC offers.

How Does Solar AC Work?

There are a few ways solar air conditioning can be installed, but the most effective way is by powering your air conditioning system via photovoltaic (PV) panels. PV panels use the energy from the sun to generate an electrical current. This electrical current is then used to power whatever you want, including your air conditioning system. Electrical energy is stored in batteries, and the system uses the solar power as long as possible. If another power source is needed, your AC will automatically switch to your back-up power source.

Benefits of Solar-Powered Air Conditioning

There are several benefits to solar-powered air conditioning worth considering:

  • Reduced energy costs – solar power can reduce your monthly electric costs up to $50 per month.
  • Long lifespan – solar panels have a lifespan of 25-30 years.
  • Reduced carbon footprint – by utilizing solar energy, you reduce your home’s carbon footprint as well as that of your power plant.

Always Hire Professionals

Proper installation is key for any air conditioning system, particularly for a system like a solar AC. It is also important to work with a company that can provide the repair work you may need in the future. This is why it’s essential to hire trained professionals who have the experience and knowledge to keep your solar air conditioner operating as necessary.
