How Does Geothermal Heating Work?
When you choose geothermal heating for your home or business, you’re choosing to harness the power of the Earth. Our HVAC technicians will install your home with a geothermal heat pump (GHP) in place of a traditional heating unit. Traditional units warm your home by performing heat exchange with the air, but GHP units perform this exchange with the ground below your property.
While air temperatures rapidly fluctuate, ground and water temperatures tend to remain constant. During the winter, the ground retains warmer temperatures than the air, which your GHP utilizes to heat your home. Some GHPs utilize underground water to achieve this purpose.
What Makes Geothermal Heating so Great?
We’ll be candid with you — GHPs are much more expensive to install than traditional HVAC systems. This initial expense is due to the fact that the underground elements of the GHP require drilling and excavation. However, like many green technologies, they end up more than paying for themselves. They pay for themselves in terms of the money you save and the environment that is preserved.
Our units can be as much as 65% more efficient than traditional units, meaning you save a ton of money on energy bills. Geothermal heating systems can also reduce the cost to heat your water and are built to last, meaning they are a truly worthwhile investment for your property. Moreover, reduced energy consumption means that less carbon is emitted into the atmosphere, ultimately helping our planet.
