Geothermal Heating and Cooling
Geothermal heating and cooling is something that more and more people are utilizing because of its fantastic energy efficiency and great comfort. While it is still growing in popularity, geothermal heating and cooling options can offer a number of surprising benefits both for you and the environment.
How it Works
Geothermal heating and cooling takes advantage of the stable underground temperatures below the frost line and utilizes those reliable temperatures to keep your home comfortable year-round. The nice thing about geothermal heating and cooling is that you’re constantly utilizing what is already available to you and you don’t have to worry about a variety of different fuel costs depending on the type of system you have. Not to mention that geothermal heating and cooling has the ability to help you lower your monthly energy bills all year long.
Here are just a few of the benefits that geothermal heating and cooling can offer:
- Durability. The source for your heating and cooling needs is stored solar energy that is underground, which means it’s not going anywhere. The system is set up so that it takes the heat or the cold and transfers it to your home. Of course, it’s more complex than that, but your indoor air handler then sends that heated or cooled air throughout your home. Plus, the system is sheltered underground, shielding it from the elements, boosting its lifespan, reliability and dependability.
- Quiet operation. Due to the fact that the majority of a geothermal system is housed underground, your air handler is the only part of the system that you would hear. However, the motors on the air handlers are remarkably quiet and it’s more likely that you won’t even notice them operating.
- Safety. When you consider that you’re harnessing the heat and cold of the earth for your heating and cooling, there are no fuels involved in this equation. That means that you don’t have to worry about fuel combustion or any other gasses given off by other fuel sources.
