You probably don’t give a lot of thought about how your home is cooled and heated. You set your thermostat, you get more comfortable, and that’s about it, but if you’ve never considered geothermal heating and cooling for your home it may be time. The benefits could be significant helping you save a great deal of money in the long term. The Fort Worth professionals with Global Efficient Energy would like to share some information so you are well informed if you are thinking about replacing your present system.
How it Works
Geothermal heating and cooling uses the earth’s resources to provide efficient comfort. It is not only sustainable and environmentally friendly, it is also extremely cost effective. Thanks to advances in technology geothermal energy can be tapped no matter where you live. And that energy is basically unlimited, as heat is taken from the ground during winter and pumped away from your home in the summer.
Here’s a quick look at how this type of system does its job:
- A geothermal system performs the same functions of your furnace and air conditioner
- The air that moves through your ducts, the water in your pipes and the refrigerant in your geothermal system act as one
- Water circulates through your home and then through pipes underground either transferring heat to the system’s refrigerant or absorbing heat from it.
- Refrigerant fills the system’s condenser coils; It can get as cold as 40 degrees or as hot as 180 degrees
- The refrigerant either cools or heats the air that blows across the coils, that air then travels through the ducts in your home
Why You Need It
You may be able to take advantage of significant tax credits if you purchase a geothermal heating and cooling system, which would help it pay for itself very quickly. Over time, the money you save on your monthly energy bills can easily reach into the thousands of dollars.
