The Most Eco-Friendly (and Energy Efficient) Option
With new energy efficient designs for basic heat pumps, homeowners can save as much as 50% on their electric bills. However, geothermal heat pumps raise the bar on that efficiency, especially in areas with extreme temperatures in the summer and winter.
Although installation costs are higher compared to basic air-source heat pumps, the savings are so much more. By using the moderate temperature of the earth, they are able to provide better heating and cooling without using as much energy as most other systems. It is common for homeowners to experience as much as a 70% savings on their energy bills.
What is a Geothermal Heat Pump?
The geothermal system is one that transfers heat to and from the ground. Instead of using air, as a basic heat pump would, geothermal heat pumps generally use water as the main conductor.
By using the relatively constant temperature of the soil below the frost line – which typically stays between 50 and 60 degrees fahrenheit – you are able to experience the best heating and cooling in your home without a high energy cost. And because the majority of the geothermal system is buried deep underground, it requires very little maintenance and will last as much as six times larger than a traditional heat pump.
The geothermal system is one of the most efficient types on the market. In fact, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calls it the most energy-efficient and environmentally clean space conditioning system available.
In addition to heat pumps, our geothermal options also include water heaters that can further reduce your energy usage.
