What is Geothermal?
Geo (Earth) thermal (Heat), also known as ground-source heat pumps, are an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. Geothermal systems move heat rather than make heat. While temperatures above ground change a lot from day to day and season to season, temperatures 10 feet below the Earth’s surface hold nearly constant between 40° and 50°F. For most areas, this means that soil temperatures are usually warmer than the air in winter and cooler than the air in summer.
Geothermal heat pumps use the Earth’s constant temperatures to heat and cool buildings. They transfer heat from the ground (or water) into buildings in winter and reverse the process in the summer.
Reduce Energy Costs up to 75%
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), geothermal heat pumps are the most energy efficient, environmentally clean, and cost effective systems for temperature control. (with efficiencies 200%-400%) Although most homes still use traditional furnaces and air conditioners, geothermal heat pumps are becoming more popular. With power company rebates geothermal has become a more affordable option.
