Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from PWA Heating & Cooling Inc. Here in Plainfield, and nearly everywhere else across the country, we have a large supply of sunlight, and we don’t pay for it to appear. That’s why a SunSource® Home Energy System can save you so much money on your energy expenses. Plus, the system can grow with your energy needs. 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 even 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 simply 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 could actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, as well. These can include other appliances, lights, TVs and computers, and all those other things you’d plug into an electrical socket. That means you’d be paying considerably less, if anything at all, in bills to your local utility company in Plainfield. If your system doesn’t produce enough to cover the entire house, that’s okay. Your system will be connected to the utility systems so you can use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t producing energy. Discover more about how solar energy systems work.
