Geothermal

Are you currently spending a fortune to keep your family comfortable all year long? With a geothermal system installation, you can enjoy significantly lower utility bills and superior comfort year-round – all while doing your part to protect the environment. One of the most energy-efficient options available today, a geothermal heat pump keeps your home comfortable by transferring warm air in the summer and cold air in the winter to the outdoors where it belongs. The result is quiet, even distribution of air for a fraction of what you’d spend to power a conventional heating or cooling system.

Geothermal heating and cooling utilizes the solar energy stored just below the surface of the earth.  This energy is removed from the ground to heat your home during winter months and works in reverse during the summer months where heat is removed from the house and deposited back into the ground.  With the use of a Geothermal unit within your home and a high density polyethylene pipe buried in the ground, the earth is used as a heat exchanger to keep your home at its optimal comfort level all year round.

There are a variety of benefits associated with geothermal systems.  Some of these benifits include the following:

 

  • Safe and secure – no fuel exhaust with chimney’s or flues, so no opportunity for carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Money in your pocket – most energy efficient heating and cooling systems available today
  • Earth friendly – uses very little electricity and enhances efforts to control pollution and green house emissions
  • Noise free environment – no noisy outdoor air conditioner on the side of your house detracting from your outdoor activities or even your landscaping
  • Less maintenance and service – only one system heats, cools and produces hot water.  Also, since its located inside the home, its not exposed to the harsh outdoor elements, which could lead to mechanical issues
  • Free hot water – a geothermal system can potentially reduce a standard home water heating cost by 50%
  • Longer life expectancy – a typical conventional heating and cooling system can have an average of 15-18 years life expectancy compared to a geothermal system which ranges between 20-25 years
  • Flexibility – the equipment used for a geothermal system is versatile in the fact that it can be installed in existing homes, new construction, small and large commercial structures
  • Comfort – geothermal provides more consistent air temperatures throughout the house eliminating hot and cold spots.  Because of the way they cycle, they do a better job of air purification and dehumidification than conventional systems
  • Financial incentive – When installing a geothermal system, you become eligible for a federal tax credit of 30% on the entire system.  Take advantage of this now as the offer is only through December of 2016!!!!
