Solar Air Conditioners in Ft. Worth, TX by Cool Tech Mechanical

Considering just how long and sunny our summer seasons tend to be, it really makes sense to put the energy of the sun to work for us during this time of the year.

How Solar Air Conditioners Work

There are a few ways by which homeowners may choose to utilize solar energy when cooling their homes. Certain systems, for instance, will use solar energy to reduce the amount of work that the compressor must do in order to heat the refrigerant an AC uses in the cooling process. In most cases, though, residential property owners will use a photovoltaic–based system. This involves the installation of solar panels, which use solar cells in order to convert energy from the sun into usable electricity. This electricity can then be used to operate your cooling system, and any surplus of solar energy can be stored in backup batteries for use on those days during which there is not sufficient solar energy for powering the system.

We Install and Service Solar Air Conditioners

Needless to say, only a trained professional has the background, experience, and working knowledge required to install any sort of solar energy equipment, including that needed for powering a solar air conditioner. Every step of the process, from the selection of equipment to the installation of solar panels and the air conditioning equipment must be completed with the utmost care. Solar equipment is not cheap, and while the energy savings that you’ll enjoy over time can help to offset the initial investment made in this equipment, you need every component in that system working optimally to get the best return possible from that investment.

Scheduling routine solar air conditioner maintenance will help to ensure that your solar air conditioner remains in fine working condition at all times. Not only does routine maintenance help to prevent problems leading to repair needs, but it also helps to keep your system working as effectively and efficiently as possible. You don’t want to be left out in the heat one day because it is very cloudy and your solar backup battery is not holding energy as it should.

The sooner that you have a technician from Cool Tech Mechanical repair your solar air conditioner, the sooner you can get back to cooling your home in the efficient, environmentally friendly manner that solar air conditioning is so renowned for.
