Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Southern Heating & Cooling Inc.. Here in Scottsboro, and almost 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 save you dollars 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 change energy from the sun into electricity that can be used in your house. Depending on the size and power of your equipment, you could generate enough energy to power a number of your appliances or your own home. If you consider a typical home’s yearly utility costs, nearly half of the total amount of energy is used to power heating and cooling systems. Even if your solar panels are just generating enough to power your furnace and AC, 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. Say hello to serious savings! Many residential solar systems could actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, as well. These might 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 Scottsboro. Don’t worry if your system doesn’t produce enough electricity for the entire house. Your system will be connected to the utility systems, enabling you to use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t converting energy. Discover more about how solar energy systems work.
