A geothermal heating system can provide year round comfort and deliver excellent energy efficiency.
Each heat pump we install replaces the need for a furnace. In the cooling months the same appliance (installed in your basement or utility room) also replaces the need for an outside AC unit. One heat pump = a furnace + an AC unit.
Geothermal is truly “green” using renewable energy from the ground to heat and cool your home. Taken a step farther, consider the possibility of living in a “flameless” home—no combustibles, no fossil fuels being consumed, no carbon dioxide being emitted from your home into the atmosphere and no risk of carbon monoxide being generated.
Heat pumps require only electricity to operate. Owing to the COP (coefficient of performance) of these systems, by using the thermal energy of the earth a typical heat pump can reduce heating and cooling energy consumption within a home by up to 60-70%.
As energy costs continue to rise over the coming years the cost savings will only increase. There is an opportunity cost risk to homeowners who procrastinate about replacing antiquated systems. A properly designed and installed geothermal heating and cooling system will provide a perpetual source of cost effective, environmentally friendly home comfort.
Remember, we all heat our homes using our “after-tax dollars”. So when you spend a few thousand dollars this year heating your home with oil or propane, ask yourself how much earned income do you need to make to bring that amount of money home after tax? Call us, let’s talk.
