What is Geothermal Energy?Geothermal energy is one of the most efficient technologies ever developed by the HVAC industry. Basically, Geothermal Heating and Cooling Systems operate by utilizing a transfer of heat below the earth's surface. In a nutshell, the system uses the temperature of the earth's crust, which is naturally renewable, as a heat source during the cold months, and as a heat sink during the warmer months. There is a precious source of energy buried right under your house—the earth itself. Forget gas and oil. Our geothermal heat pumps for Pennsylvania residents use the temperature of your yard, pond, or water well; it runs on electricity but uses the earth’s thermal energy to condition the refrigerant in your HVAC system. That means you enjoy higher energy efficiency no matter how extreme the weather gets—while you save the environment.
Why switch to Geothermal?This type of system will save you on heating and cooling costs, as well. Exactly how much will it save you? Installing a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System in your home will save you approximately 40% per year. That is a significant savings, don't you think? There are other advantages to having this type of HVAC system. Using this form of heating and cooling will make your house more attractive should you decide to sell. The word is getting out that Geothermal Systems are the best and a home with one is most desirable. Another reason that Geothermal Systems are appealing is that they are easy on the environment. Converting to Geothermal will greatly reduce your carbon footprint. In addition, the efficiency of geothermal systems is consistent. The ground absorbs about half the energy the Earth receives from the sun, plus the earth has natural insulating properties. This means the ground remains at a constant and moderate temperature just below the surface year-round. With traditional sources, air temperature varies greatly from summer to winter. Heating and cooling, therefore, becomes least efficient when you need it the most.
How do Geothermal Heat Pumps work?A geothermal system consists of a buried system of pipes, an indoor handling unit, and a pump re injection. These parts work together to provide “free energy.” Geothermal heat pumps are typically easily integrated with existing systems whether forced air or radiant floor heating and, of course, can be installed in new construction buildings.
