Do you want to enjoy the rewards of the most economical, clean, non-polluting heating and cooling technology on the market today?
The installation of a geothermal heating and cooling system can deliver up to seventy percent savings over a conventional system. For every unit of energy drawn to operate the system, three to four units of energy are produced. Because geothermal heating and cooling makes use of a renewable energy resources that are available in your own backyard, you’ll maintain perfect comfort levels while saving a substantial amount in energy costs.
The earth absorbs nearly half of all solar energy and holds a constant temperature between fifty and seventy degrees Fahrenheit. Utilizing an underground loop system, geothermal heating and cooling systems draw from this constant temperature to exchange energy between your home and earth. In winter, water circulates within the sealed loop to absorb heat from the earth and transfer it to the geothermal unit, where it is compressed to a higher temperature and delivered as warm air for circulation in your home. During the summer, the system reverses. Heat is expelled from the home into the cooler earth by way of the loop system. Designed to exacting ACCA standards, every room in your home will be consistently comfortable all year round.
With a geothermal system, the average two thousand square foot home can be kept at ideal temperatures for as little as a dollar a day. Geothermal units require only a very small amount of electricity to transfer heat to and from the ground to our home. They are the most environmentally responsible choice on the market, and maintenance consists of nothing more than periodic checks and filter changes. While these systems cost more to install, the significant reduction in utility bills and annual maintenance costs easily recover the added investment in three to five years.
The closed loop system is the most popular. For this system the pipes are completely below ground and the heat is drawn from and returned to the ground. An open-loop system is another option. These systems are more efficient but require a body of water, such as a lake or pond, to provide the source of water that circulates through the pipes. When deciding which geothermal system is right for you, there are many things to consider. Soil type, land availability, and overall cost are all factors.
