Geothermal heating and cooling systems are a great energy efficient option for any home and can help save you money on your energy bills. You can even qualify for a tax credit when you install a new geothermal system in your home or business!
What is Geothermal Heating?
Ground source geothermal heat pump (GSHP) is a green, energy-efficient way to create better climate control in your home or business. This state of the art system uses the steady flow of heat from the earth to help heat your home in the winter and displaces heat back into the earth during the summer. This is a great way to conserve energy and save money year round. Geothermal systems are even more affordable with both federal and state tax credit rebates that can get you up to 30% back on your investment in a new system.
Heat is extracted from the earth using a ground loop system of pipes that are installed at least four feet underground. Depending on the ground space available, these pipes can be configured vertically or horizontally to best meet your home’s needs. This warmth is then circulated throughout your home or building in the winter.
During the summer, the system pulls heat and warm air from the building and will either redistribute it back into the earth or will use it to heat water. This is an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional HVAC systems, while still providing the same level of comfort year round.
