A solar-ready air conditioner is essentially a traditional air conditioner that takes advantage of solar power. Solar panels, like those in the Lennox® SunSource® Home Energy System, captures the sun’s radiant energy and routes it to the air conditioner after it’s been converted to electrical current. The solar energy that’s created is first used to heat and cool your home. Energy that’s captured but not needed by your air conditioner can be taken advantage of to power electronics and small appliances, and if energy is remaining, it can potentially be sold back to your utility company.
