More and more folks are hopping on the geothermal heat pump band wagon. And Chapman Heating | Air Conditioning | Plumbing couldn’t be happier!
For those of you that don’t know, geothermal systems use the natural insulating properties of the Earth as the means of keeping the inside of your home at a consistent temperature all year. Even with the dynamic changes in temperature with each season, geothermal heat pumps keep your home just right.
See, no matter how cold it gets or how hot it gets, the temperature below ground actually stays relatively consistent. Here’s how geothermal heat pumps take advantage.
When it’s cold
During the bitter cold winter months, a geothermal unit can be set to heating mode. Wires and conductors underground extract eat from the ground and pulls it into the main system to be distributed through ducts as warm air.
When it’s hot
In the hot, hot summer months, the unit can then be set to cooling mode. In a role reversal, the geothermal heat pump cools your home, not by bringing in cool air, but extracting the hot air from your home and either sending it back to the earth or using it to preheat water in your hot water tank.
So, know you know how it works; here’s why we love it as an alternative to traditional heating and cooling systems.
Geothermal heating and cooling units operate at around 60% higher efficiency than its counterparts. They typically deliver 5 times the units of energy and, across all heating, cooling and hot water expenses, can potentially save owners up to 70% in energy costs.
That is a pretty good reason on its own! But, there’s more to it.
These systems also carry a longer life expectancy and require less general maintenance, saving you money in the long run as well.
Reduces Environmental Impact
Geothermal heat pumps are extraordinarily environmentally-friendly. Geothermal heat pumps do not emit any carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide or any other pollutants on that long list of harmful pollutants. Harnessing the Earth’s heat means the pump is using a renewable and clean source of energy.
Better Overall Comfort
More than money or environmental impacts, geothermal heat pumps just make your home more comfortable. These systems are more precise in their distribution of hot and cold air. Due to design, the system also acts as a dehumidifier.
Geothermal heat pumps are also quieter than regular air conditioners or furnaces, giving you and your neighborhood better peace.
Better savings, better for the environment and better for your comfort. No matter how you look at it geothermal heat pumps are just better.
