Could Geothermal Heating or Cooling Be Right for You?
If you are getting sticker shock in the winter and summer when you get your electric bill, you should know that there is another way. Geothermal heating and cooling can cut your bill while giving you a more reliable system. Here are three reasons why a geothermal system may be the right choice for you.
1. Energy Efficient
Your geothermal system will use a small fraction of the amount of energy that an HVAC system would. All it needs to do is keep exchanging the air with the ground in order to heat and cool your home. The process will begin to cut your electric bills immediately as less is needed to heat and cool your home. This will be an especially welcome development in the dead of summer and winter when your power bills would otherwise skyrocket.
2. More Reliable
The HVAC system needs maintenance practically every year to ensure that it runs well. There are a large number of parts that can break at any time. Your geothermal system consists of much fewer parts. In fact, there is a pump and the piping, and that is largely it. Geothermal systems can last for decades without much, if any, maintenance work. This means that the system will be there for you when you need it the most.
3. Purer Air
Since the air is being pulled from the ground, you will not have to worry as much about contaminants and pollutants that come from a traditional HVAC system. Moreover, you will not need to be running the dehumidifier constantly. Accordingly, the air that you breathe with a geothermal system will be cleaner since it comes straight from the ground, and there is less of a chance that it will make you sick with allergies.
