Geothermal heat pumps utilize the earth’s energy underneath the surface to heat or cool your home in Carrollton, Georgia. That’s because, as opposed to fluctuating outdoor air, the temperature below ground stays relatively constant. If you invest in a geothermal heat pump that’s equipped for it, it can also provide your household with hot water.
There are four types of geothermal heat pumps available on the market. Three of these geothermal options – horizontal, vertical and pond/lake – are closed-loop systems. The fourth geothermal option is an open-loop system. If you pick the perfect geothermal heat pump for your property, you’re sure to experience these five benefits.
Improved Home Comfort
At times, conventional heating and cooling systems produce hot or cold blasts of air that can make you feel uncomfortable. Geothermal systems, on the other hand, heat and cool your home evenly.
Lower Monthly Energy Costs
Since geothermal systems take advantage of the earth’s natural energy without the need to heat or cool the air they disperse at length, they help homeowners in Carrollton save up to 40 percent on their energy costs.
Prolonged System Life Cycle
Conventional heating and cooling systems require routine HVAC maintenance, with the possibility of lasting up to 20 years. Geothermal systems require minimal maintenance and can operate efficiently for up to 25 years.
Better for the Environment
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, a geothermal heat pump is the least harmful HVAC solution when it concerns the environment. Installing a geothermal system in your home is equivalent to planting 750 trees.
Safer and Cleaner
A geothermal system doesn’t use fossil fuels to heat and cool your home, which eliminates the dangers caused by combustion. When you install a geothermal system in your home, you won’t have to worry about carbon monoxide.
