“We like to make people happy and comfortable,” says Kenny Bates. “The best job starts with a thorough analysis before installation—we measure how much air conditioning you’ll need based on your house’s size, number of windows, insulation and other factors.
We want your system to be efficient for your home.”
Myatt and Bates is a Lennox Premier Dealer, offering the best in Lennox Home Comfort Systems. One of the most exciting new developments in the Lennox line is the solar-powered home comfort system. Called unSource II, the system allows up to 15 solar panels to be connected to a single air conditioner or heat pump and is the world’s first “Home Energy Myatt and Bates helps homeowners save energy Keeping Cool and GreenSystem.” Free solar power generated by the panels that is not being used by your air conditioning unit is fed back into the energy supply and is available to power other things, like household appliances or lighting.
“Quite honestly, I don’t think Americans have any other choice but to go green,” says Bates. “And it’s our responsibility to start developing green-friendly products and resources. Even if your home has an older system, Myatt and Bates specialists can help it perform more efficiently. They do a lot of what is known as “rehab work” – repairing deficiencies in a previous installation to keep energy costs down.
Customers can inquire about financing, or they may qualify for rebates and tax credits. Bates stresses that high-efficiency systems pay off, providing homeowners with comfort and lower energy costs.
“Because we want our customers for life,” Bates says, “we will continue to provide friendly, professional service after the installation is complete.”
