How much can I actually save by using the Sun Source solar panel system?
There are many variables to consider when estimating cost savings, such as: the insulation factor of your home, the cost of your heating fuel source, lifestyle, temperature extremes, and the number of solar panels used from 1 to amaximum of 15 panels.
Lennox has a published “Estimated Annual Costs Savings” that shows region 5 which is all of Canada, and is based on running a 10 SEER heat pump and the percent saving for Canada were based on 2750 heating load hours. Keeping this in mind the numbers work like this: for a 3 ton heat pump (XP17-036) and a single solar panel the average savings would be approximately 23%. Using the same heat pump and running 5 solar panels the average savings would be approximately 31%, with running same heat pump with 10 panels the approximate savings would be 42%. If you use the maximum number of panels, which is 15, they estimate the savings to be approximately 53%.
