Efficient Geothermal Services
Studies indicate that geothermal systems harness around 70% renewable energy from the Earth’s surface, with the rest generated as clean electrical power. By utilizing this electricity to concentrate and transport heat, geothermal systems are able to maintain an ideal climate year-round. In winter, the ground absorbs radiant sunlight and blocks out frigid air; in the summertime, the soil heats up more slowly than outside temperatures due to its natural insulation properties.
Geothermal systems offer homeowners many benefits, including utility bills that are 25-70% lower than conventional systems and minimal maintenance costs. Furthermore, geothermal owners can enjoy the peace of mind of knowing their system is working efficiently with reduced environmental impact!
The Benefits of Geothermal Energy Are Limitless!
Homeowners who select geothermal systems as their source of energy will also appreciate these additional advantages:
- According to the National Association of Realtors Appraisal Journal, every dollar saved in annual utility expenses increases your home’s value by a staggering $10-$25!
- Enjoy a constant level of comfort throughout the year with minimal effort, in comparison to traditional systems.
- Reassurance that their actions are in harmony with the environment.
- When compared to a traditional furnace, this system emits substantially fewer greenhouse gases.
- Ridding your home of hazardous and odorless carbon monoxide is a key step in keeping yourself and your family safe.
- Utilizing this system will eliminate expensive boiler repairs and cleaning, allowing you to save on maintenance costs.
Q: What is a geothermal heat pump?
A: A Geothermal Heat Pump system harnesses the natural heat storage capacity of the Earth, requiring only electrical power to work. Ground temperature 6 feet deep can stay a steady 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit in many locations around the world – an ideal environment for this type of heating and air conditioning solution!
Q: How does it work?
A: Similar to other types of heat pumps, Geothermal Heat Pumps use the same science behind a refrigerator’s function and move heat energy from one place to another. Via the refrigeration process, this pump extracts warmth out of your home and transfers it all into the ground.
Q: How is heat transferred between the earth and the home?
A: Our planet has the remarkable capacity to both absorb and preserve heat energy, which can then be tapped into with a liquid medium like water. This is done by utilizing a heat pump or exchanger to bring that 68-72 degree stored temperature up for winter home heating, as well as reversing the process in the summertime where interior warmth from your dwelling is transferred back outside down into the earth’s depths through said water.
Q: You mentioned heating and cooling. Does it do both?
A: Heat pumps are remarkably versatile as they can serve both as a cooling and heating system combined. With a thermostat, you could easily switch between the two modes just like on an ordinary HVAC system.
Q: How efficient is a geothermal heat pump?
A: Geothermal heat pumps are far more effective than a 12 SEER air conditioner, boasting an efficiency three times greater than the most efficient gas furnace.
