“A geothermal system is one of the most advanced, adaptable and cost-effective heating and cooling systems around today.”
How does a geothermal system work?
A geothermal system uses the energy of the sun stored in the earth, to keep you comfortable all year round. Even during the winter months, when a blanket of snow may be covering the ground, or during the summer months when the sun is out longer, the earth’s temperature is always at a constant 10-15 degrees Fahrenheit. Just 6-8 ft. below the surface, for the whole year. What this means for you if you choose to install a geothermal system, is that you’ll have a steady supply of hot or cool air to keep you comfortable, no matter what time of year it is.
Benefits of choosing a Geothermal Heating & Cooling System
- It can be used as a combination heating & cooling system, as well as a hot water system.
- Some can cut your water bill in half, simply by preheating the water that’s already in the tank.
- They’re about the same size as a traditional heating & cooling unit.
- They’re extremely quiet. There are no noisy fans to interrupt outdoor activities.
- They are safer for your family. There is no open flame, or potentially dangerous fuel storage tanks to worry about.
- Your investment will be recouped after only a few years.
- You will conserve natural resources by providing climate control efficiently, thus lowering emissions.
Is a geothermal system good for the environment?
Installing a geothermal system to replace a fossil fuel system immediately cuts your personal emissions contribution by 50 percent. In other words, the equivalent of planting a whole acre of trees!
Unlike air conditioners or heat pumps, there is no outdoor unit with a geothermal system. Therefore, no more noise! Geothermal units are especially smooth and quiet while they’re operating, so that you and your family can enjoy peaceful outdoor fun and relaxation.
How long will my geothermal system last?
Geothermal systems are typically good for 15 years or more. Whereas your typical furnace will only last 7-10 years, even with routine maintenance checks done.
