Geothermal systems offer a smart alternative for the replacement of older or inefficient equipment. Most units are simple to install and can be installed in areas unsuitable for fossil fuel furnaces. There is no combustion or need to vent exhaust gasses which means our equipment can be installed virtually anywhere. Just think of it- comfortable heating, warm floors, and hot water; all while reducing your heating and cooling cost while preserving the environment.
Did you know there is a dependable source of temperature that can put to good use; just a few feet under the earth’s surface? How is that possible?
The sun infuses the Earth’s crust with its heat energy. 47% of that energy is stored in the ground as heat. Geothermal systems tap this heating potential using an earth loop system; harvesting this free heat for your home. This innovative technology uses the sun’s heat that the earth has readily stored to condition your home or office.
In the heating cycle, a geothermal heat pump employs the earth loop system to draw the heat from the ground. Delivery though a classic duct system, the geothermal system draws heat from the loops and distributes it as warm air. Other choices are available to use the same heating energy to provide hot water heating and radiant floor heat.
The heating process is reversed in the cooling mode – creating cool, conditioned air all through the home. Instead of extracting heat from the ground, heat is taken from the air in your home and either moved back into the earth loop, or used to preheat the water in your hot water tank.
Geothermal technology is the earth-friendly way to heat and cool your home or business. Geothermal HVAC systems, also called ground source heat pumps, are among the most energy efficient systems available. Depending on the situation, SAVINGS UP to 70% have been achieved by this equipment. Also, the tax credit for 30% of TOTAL COST is still available on this solution which makes the typically higher installation costs much more manageable. These systems generally require less maintenance and repairs and according to the U.S. EPA, these systems have the lowest life cycle cost of any HVAC system.
The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and the DOE (Department of Energy) confirmed that geothermal heat pumps are the most environmentally friendly and cost-efficient way to heat and cool your home. Geothermal systems extrude no carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide or other greenhouse gasses that can be harmful to the environment and your family. We know your main concern is to keep your home and family safe and comfortable – now you can do that as well as helping the environment.
