Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Custom Air Systems Inc. Here in Port Saint Lucie, and almost everywhere else across the country, we have plenty of sunlight, and we don’t pay for it to appear. That’s why a SunSource® Home Energy System can help you save on your utility bills. Plus, the system can be expanded as your energy needs grow. How does a solar energy system help lower utility costs? Solar modules transform energy from the sun into electricity that can be used in your house. Depending on the size and power of your solar energy system, you could generate enough energy to power a number of your appliances or potentially your whole home. If you examine a typical home’s yearly utility costs, about half of the total amount of energy used goes to powering 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 generated by the sun and not the utility grid. That accounts for some major savings! Many residential solar systems may actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, also. These could include other appliances, lights, TVs and computers, and anything else you’d plug into an electrical socket. That means you’d be paying very little, if anything at all, in bills to your local utility company in Port Saint Lucie. If your system doesn’t produce enough to cover the entire house, that’s okay. Your system will be connected to the utility systems, allowing you to use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t producing energy. Discover more about how solar energy systems work.
