GEOTHERMAL HEATING AND COOLING SYSTEMS
Geothermal heating uses the grounds’ consistent temperature to heat and cool your home. It may seem as if this is the newest in HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) technology because of the soaring popularity in recent years but in fact, they have been in use since the late 1940s. Today’s technology combined with consistent ground temperatures creates the perfect conditions for extreme efficiency. Some systems can even provide you with hot water in addition to the perfect temperature inside your home. Whether you want a closed-loop, a horizontal, a vertical, or a hybrid geothermal system installed, serviced, or repaired Home Comfort has you covered.
According to energy.gov, “heating is the largest expense in the average U.S. home, accounting for about 45% of energy [costs].” Doing your research when it comes to furnaces will help you keep them running well and save you time and money.
Here are just a few of the advantages of a geothermal HVAC system:
Heating efficiencies 50 to 70% higher than other heating systems and cooling efficiencies 20 to 40% higher than available air conditioners
Save money in operating and maintenance costs
Investments recouped in only a few years
Positive cash flow; energy savings usually exceed the cost of the system
Can be a combination heating/cooling and hot water heating system
Some can save you up to 50% on your water-heating bill by preheating tank water
Can cut energy consumption by 20 to 50% and reduce maintenance costs
Very quiet, providing a pleasant environment inside & outside the home
No noisy fan units to disturb outdoor activities
No exposed equipment outdoors; children or pets cannot injure themselves or damage exterior units
FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A GEOTHERMAL HEATING AND COOLING SYSTEM:
What is the size of space you want to cool?
Determine whether you want to heat and cool and heat water as well?
What type of soil do you have?
What is your property’s groundwater level?
How long will do you plan to live in the home?
