Homeowners in virtually every region of the country are enjoying a high level of comfort and significantly reducing their energy use today by heating and cooling their homes with geothermal heat pumps.
This marvelous technology relies primarily on the Earth's natural thermal energy, a renewable resource, to heat or cool a home or commercial building. The only additional energy these systems require is the small amount of electricity they employ to concentrate what Mother Nature provides and then to circulate high-quality heating and cooling throughout the building.
Homeowners who use geothermal systems give them superior ratings because of their ability to deliver comfortably warm air, even on the coldest winter days, and because of their extraordinarily low operating costs. As an additional benefit, geothermal systems can provide inexpensive hot water, either to supplement or replace entirely the output of a conventional, domestic water heater.
Geothermal heating and cooling is cost effective because it uses energy so efficiently. This makes it very environmentally friendly, too. For these reasons, agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy recognize it.
Geothermal heat pump systems are the most efficient systems used and do not require back-up heat like an air to air heat pump system. The cost of installing a geothermal heat pump system is higher but over the long term the savings in energy usage from a geothermal heat pump system to an air to air heat pump system is greater.
