Efficient Geothermal Energy

Are you looking for an energy-efficient electric heating solution for your home? If so, ask one of our team members about geothermal systems. Geothermal heat pump systems use the earth’s temperature to warm the house with an underground circulating water loop and pipes between your home and the heat pump system. During cold months, the systems absorb heat from the ground and carry it to the system to create warm air.

Some benefits of using geothermal energy include the following:

  • Energy savings: According to the EPA, geothermal energy can produce savings of up to 70% compared to other heating systems. When hot air or water is generated by the system, geothermal energy helps save you money.
  • Quiet components: Geosystems are quiet without the need for an outdoor unit.
  • Eco-friendly parts: Geothermal energy is eco-friendly and does not produce greenhouse gases.
  • Clean, safe energy: The system does not produce combustion or carbon monoxide.
  • Durable, long-lasting life: Geothermal systems have a long life span and ground loop systems.

Types of Heating Systems

Consider the different types of heating systems:

  • Boiler and Hydronic systems: Natural gas and propane options to distribute some of the most comfortable heat through water pipes or radiators in your home.
  • Furnaces: Gas and propane hot air options.
  • Heat pumps: A common way to provide hot air using an electric indoor and outdoor unit, or split system. Heat pumps have become far more efficient than their predecessors.
  • Hybrid heating or Dual Fuel system: A combination of a high-efficiency heat pump with the comfort of a furnace
  • Geothermal: The most environmentally friendly way to heat and cool your home with electricity and possibly even heat your water.
  • Ductless mini-split systems: Creative and efficient heat pump systems for individual rooms or a whole house.

Additionally, there is the possibility of adding to your current system to create greater comfort in your home or greater efficiency with your heating system:

  • Zoning: Alleviate cold spots in a house.
  • Duct modifications: Increase or improve airflow throughout your home.
  • Whole-home humidifier: Keeps you feeling warmer and improves air quality.
  • Upgraded programmable thermostat: Improve monthly utility costs.

Choosing the Right Heating System

If your heating system is too small or large, you might be sacrificing comfort and wasting money. Make sure your system is the right size to ensure it works properly. If a heat pump system is too small, it might increase your utility bill as it struggles to heat the home. Almost any heating system that is too large will waste energy.
