Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Main Heating & Cooling, Inc.. Here in Utica, and just about everywhere else across the country, we have a large supply of sunlight, and we don’t have to pay anything to get it. That’s why a SunSource® Home Energy System can help you save on your electric bills. 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 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 consumed is spent on heating and cooling systems. Even if your solar panels are only generating enough to power your heater 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 may actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, too. These can include other appliances, lights, TVs and computers, and anything else 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 Utica. 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. Learn more about how solar energy systems work.
