Simply put, a geothermal system doesn’t heat or cool your home by burning fossil fuels or using electricity in the ways you’re used to. Instead, it uses electricity to access the near-constant temperatures found deep in the earth.
Geothermal works on a very simple principle: no matter what the air temperature is outside, under the surface of the earth, the temperature remains constant. Which means that during the summer, the earth is cooler than the outside air, and during the winter, the earth is warmer than the outside air.
A geothermal system works like a heat pump, only on a much larger scale. In cold weather, your home is warmed by heat brought in from the earth. During warm weather, your home is cooled by the movement of heat from your home back into the earth.
Tax Credits: There is currently is a tax credit for Geothermal for 30% of the installed cost with no upper limit for existing homes and new construction. More information can be found at: http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=tax_credits.tx_index
If you want to take advantage of this, please mention it when you call in for a quote so that we can quote you a system that will qualify.
Geothermal heat pumps can cut your heating and cooling costs by 50% to 60% and provide hot water.
SAFE, CLEAN, AND COMFORTABLE
No pilot lights, no flue vent, no carbon monoxide: with a constant even temperature and humidity control.
Helps reduce both outdoor noise and air pollution
Geothermal heat pumps last longer because they are housed and protected from harsh weather conditions. No defrost cycles are needed like air-to-air heat pumps, which means less stress on critical components and no loss of operating efficiency.
