When it comes to supplying comfort to your home year round with a low energy cost, eco-friendly alternative, a Geothermal system is the answer. Geothermal heat pumps are also known as Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHPs). GSHPs operate by collecting heat from the Earth, the largest solar collector in the world. The heat retrieved from the constantly stable ground source or geothermal water source temperature is then transferred into your home. Geothermal applications work because although the air temperature in the winter could drop in some places to 30 below zero, ground and water source temperatures will remain in a constant 40 to 70 degrees, depending on your location, providing a heat source.
Geothermal systems have shown to reduce average monthly heating and cooling bills up to 70% over traditional HVAC systems. By taking advantage of Geothermal energy, you won’t ever have to worry about swings associated with fossil fuel costs again.
Geothermal systems also outlast regular HVAC system by an average of 12 years with the ground loop lasting almost 100 years in some cases. With proper and routine maintenance, a Geothermal unit can last up to 25 years.
