Want a better way to heat and cool your home? Well, why not tap into the natural power of the Earth?
Before you leave this blog thinking we have gone mad, consider this: geothermal heat pumps tap into the constant temperature of the Earth (below the surface the temperature remains in the low 50 °F range throughout the year) to provide efficient heating and cooling for your home. They operate by extracting heat energy from the Earth in the winter and adding it to the building using a water-source heat pump. In the summer, the process is reversed. Heat is extracted from your home and filtered back into the Earth.
Pretty cool, huh?
But you are probably thinking, “That’s great, but what makes this any better than my good old heat pump I have now?”
Well, geothermal heat pumps have several benefits, including:
• Energy efficient
• Geothermal heat pump systems eliminate the need for boilers, cooling towers etc.
• The ground provides a nearly constant temperature source of BTU’s for efficient heating and serves as a sink for BTU’s for efficient cooling.
• Low Operating Cost
• No Required Exposed Outdoor Equipment
• Level Seasonal Electric Demand
• No On-Site Combustion
• Long Life Expectancy
• Low Cost Integrated Water Heating
• Low Maintenance
• No Supplemental Heat Required
• Low Environmental Impact
