What is Geothermal Heating:
Geothermal heating uses the earth as an energy source, transferring heat to and from the ground. Geothermal heating utilizies the earth’s moderate temperature to add efficiency to a traditional heating and cooling system.
How Does it Work:
A Geothermal Heat pump uses the ground’s moderate temperature during winter months as a heat source. The pump adds efficiency and reduces operational costs to your traditional heating system by adding energy into the system. During the summer months it works in reverse, the Geothermal Heat Pump uses the ground as a natural heat sink. It cools your traditional system by dissipating heat, adding efficiency and lowering operational costs.
Geothermal Heat Pumps can be installed or retrofitted to most residential and commercial HVAC systems. They are a versatile and long lasting technology. For example, the underground piping for these systems can last for over 60 years and doesn’t require a chimney. While the initial unit and installation can seem expensive, expenses can sometimes be recovered within five years and the long term savings are immense.
What are the Benefits:
The main benefit of Geothermal Heating is a lifetime of energy savings, a Geothermal Heat pump can save you up to 50% on your energy bills annually. Ground heat is a renewable resource, a naturally stored and replenishing source of energy which we now can tap into. By using Geothermal Energy, you’re helping our environment by reducing our dependency of non-renewable polluting energies like Coal or Gas. Plus, homeowners using Geothermal Heating may be eligible for up to a 30% State and Federal Tax Credit.
