Geothermal heating and cooling solutions are prized for their efficiency. These all-in-one “air-to-air” or “water-to-air” systems can provide comfort to your home more efficiently than any other type of ordinary furnace or boiler.
Most units are easy to install, especially when they are replacing another forced-air system. Ground source heat pumps can be installed where fossil fuel furnaces are a problem because there are no issues with combustion. Ductwork must be installed in homes without an existing air distribution system.
A geothermal system can supply:
By taking advantage of the relatively consistent temperatures of a yard, pond or well, geothermal systems run on electricity and use the earth’s energy to provide heating and cooling to your home. You can enjoy higher comfort and lower energy bills, no matter how extreme the weather is.
Geothermal systems consist of a loop system, which is buried in your backyard or well, and a heat pump. Fluid is circulated through the loop and the heat pump transfers heat from the ground to the air or water.
During the heating cycle, low-grade heat is extracted from the ground and delivered to your home through standard ductwork or radiators. During the cooling cycle, the process is reversed: the system removes heat from the house and transfers it to the ground. Geothermal systems can also be designed and sized to supply hot water at your tap.
The cost-effectiveness of a geothermal system depends on how energy efficient your house is. We recommend a whole home energy audit to determine what air sealing and insulation upgrades you should make before installing a geothermal system. This is important because the more energy efficient your home is, the smaller your geothermal system needs to be.
Combine a geothermal heat pump with a solar power system to really take advantage of energy from the earth and the sun!
