What is a geothermal system?
A geothermal system is designed to capture heat from the sun and store it in pipes buried in the ground. During the winter months, the heat from the ground is transferred to the fluid that is in the pipes and then into your home as warm, comfortable air. In the summer months, the system is reversed. The heat from your home is drawn out and transferred to the fluid in the pipes and transported into the earth where the heat is released. The result of this process gives you cool, dry air in your home. Let's take a look at 3 reasons you should consider a geothermal system in your home:
#1 - A GEOTHERMAL SYSTEM IS GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT!
Because geothermal systems use heat from the ground instead of fossil fuels, you are protecting you and your family from polluted air. Dangerous carbon monoxide or greenhouse gasses aren’t being emitted, nor are there flumes, fumes or odors. The Geothermal Heat Pump Consortium claims that current geothermal installations save over 14 million barrels of crude oil every year. And because the only energy needed to run geothermal systems is a small amount of electricity, they reduce the need for new coal-powered electric plants, which means cleaner air and less acid rain.
#2 - A GEOTHERMAL SYSTEM CAN SAVE YOU UP TO 60% ON ENERGY BILLS!
While geothermal systems have a higher initial cost than other heating and cooling systems, geothermal systems have higher efficiency (300-400%) than any ordinary system. You can save up to 60% on your energy bills!
#3 - A GEOTHERMAL SYSTEM CAN WORK FOR ANY TYPE OF HOME!
