Geothermal Heating and Cooling
Benefits of Geothermal Heating and Cooling
Geothermal heating and cooling systems are becoming more popular because of the numerous benefits that they can bring to a building. While they have been around since the 1940's, geothermal systems are making a huge comeback due to the recent green movement. Let us briefly discuss how these geothermal heat pumps work and what their benefits are.
How Ground Source Heat Pumps Work
Every day, the earth absorbs energy from the sun and stores it. This is the reason why temperature underneath the surface of the earth remains constant. It's good to note that while outward temperatures may fluctuate with the changes in season, the temperature below the surface do not. Geothermal Heating and Cooling Systems (Ground Source Heat Pumps) use this temperature deep below ground as a source for both heating and cooling your home or business.
Important Benefits of Geothermal Heat Pumps
Geothermal energy is an unlimited resource of energy for your home, business or industrial headquarters. This eliminates the need to burn fossil fuels to heat or cool your building, thus lowering your electric bill. Geothermal heating and cooling systems can also help you save water and energy as the hot water produced within the system can be used in a variety of household applications.
Geothermal HVAC systems are also said to be more comfortable as they cause lesser fluctuations in indoor temperature. They also make your building better and noise-free since there are no unsightly and noisy above ground components which can be seen. Ground source heat pumps are placed beneath the ground or in your building’s basement. Most of all, geothermal systems do not produce emissions that are harmful for your health and the environment.
The Cost of Installing Geothermal Heating and Cooling Systems
Geothermal heat pumps are the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly HVAC systems available. Geothermal HVAC systems use the free, renewable energy to save up to 70% on heating, cooling, and hot water costs. Because geothermal systems are eligible for federal tax credits and state incentives, this can mean more savings for you.
