Geothermal Heat Pump

Have you been looking for the most energy effecient heating system for your home? Look no further, geothermal systems are amazing. They use stored energy that is in the ground and operates like a regular heat pump. The name is misleading because this system actually aids in cooling the home as well. Studies show that you can save up to 72% on your heating and cooling bill versus a standard forced air unit. This is a great alternative to the traditional forced air HVAC System.

How Does a Geothermal Heating System Work?

A geothermal heating system uses the heat from underground soil and water sources.

Benefits of a Geothermal Heating System

Longer Lasting Systems

The Lifespan of a Geothermal System is generally much longer than a traditional Forced Air HVAC System. A Geothermal unit is usually buried in the ground and protected from the constant weather like the damage from a snow storm, or from the beating of the wind or rain. The Geothermal Unit is generally undisturbed and runs constantly year round to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It actually runs best when kept at a constant temperature

Low Maintenance Requirements

With the system buried underground, the geothermal system will be virtually untouched and left alone to function. The underground pipe loop runs continuously year round and takes very little to maintain usually a servicing in the fall is what is needed. There is an indoor unit that will need to be serviced by a professional in the spring and fall .

Fantastic Energy Savings

geothermal heating systems use the constant temperatures found underground – 4 to 6 feet underneath the earths surface. Homeowners can save up to 70 percent on heating costs in the winter months. The system doesn’t rely on electrity or gas to run. It runs on the renewable resources underground!

Government Subsidies Rebates and Tax Credits

To promote the uses of geothermal systems the federal government has created tax credits to offset the cost to homeowners for converting their current HVAC system to a geothermal system. The tax credit currently stands at 26 percent throughout 2021 and 2022 before decreasing to 22 percent in 2023. The tax credit can be used for the total system cost, including installation of Geothermal heat pumps Some local utility companies offer credits as well to offset some of the costs.

Renewable Energy Source

In the winter, Geothermal heating systems absorb heat that is built up and stored in the ground through the water that circulates in the underground loop. The heat is carried to the ground-source heat pumps, and then it is sent as warm air into your home. The system does not rely on electricity from the power plant or gas from the gas company!

Increased Air Quality

There are no fossil Fuels used so there are no greenhouse gases being released. You wont have to worry about carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide polluting the air. The system runs off of renewable energy from the earth.
