Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Air Temperature Control. Here in Macon, and nearly everywhere else across the country, we have an abundance of sunlight, and we don’t have to pay money to get it. That’s why a SunSource® Home Energy System can help you save on your electric bills. Plus, the system can be added to as your energy needs also expand. How does a solar energy system help lower utility costs? Solar modules convert energy from the sun into electricity that can be used in your home. Depending on the size and power of your solar energy system, you could generate enough energy to power a portion of your appliances or potentially your whole home. If you look at a typical home’s yearly utility costs, roughly half of the total amount of energy consumed is spent on heating and cooling systems. Even if your solar panels are only generating enough to power your heater and air conditioner, your annual energy costs could still be cut in half because the energy used to power the HVAC systems was taken from the sun and not the utility grid. That alone is a significant saving! Many residential solar systems can actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, too. These could include other appliances, lights, TVs and computers, and everything else you’d plug into an electrical socket. That means you’d be paying small amounts, if anything at all, in bills to your local utility company in Macon. You won’t have to worry if your system only partially covers your family’s energy usage. Your system will be connected to the utility systems, allowing you to use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t producing energy. Find out more about how solar energy systems work.
