We provide geothermal systems for customers who prefer one of the most reliable, energy efficient, and sustainable methods of heating and cooling available.
What is Geothermal Heating and Cooling?
Geothermal heating and cooling takes advantage of the earth’s consistent temperature – usually between 50° F to 60°F – to provide clean, renewable energy for your home or office.
In the winter, this warmth is harnessed and concentrated via geothermal heat pumps and transferred inside your home or office.
In the summer months, the hot air from your home or office is captured and transferred underground to the cooler earth. The geothermal heat pump uses the cool underground temperatures to provide cool, dehumidified air to your indoor space.
Why Use a Geothermal System?
Advantages of a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System:
Low Cost of Operation:
Geothermal systems can provide 400% energy efficiency (creating 4 units of thermal energy for every 1 unit of electrical energy used.) By comparison, the most most fuel efficient gas furnaces only reach about 95% efficiency.
Long Term Reliability:
Geothermal systems are extremely reliable and have a very long life span compared to tradition HVAC units
Geothermal systems are very clean and environmentally friendly given they do not burn fuels or emit any pollution or greenhouse gases in their operation.
Because geothermal systems do not use fuel burning furnaces, consumers do not have to worry about carbon monoxide poisoning or other potentially dangerous gas leaks.
Current tax law, as passed on February 9, 2018, incentivizes the installation of many clean, environmentally friendly geothermal systems. The current law, at the time of this writing, offers a significant tax credit for qualifying geothermal systems through 2021. The credit is 30% if the qualifying system is installed between 2017 and 2019, then drops to 26% in 2020 and 22% through 2021. (Always consult with certified tax professionals to ensure accuracy, time-sensitivity, and proper procedures for any tax-related initiatives.)
Geothermal systems do not involve noisy, outdoor units like some HVAC systems. This results in very quiet, smooth, and unobtrusive operation.
