Geothermal HVAC Systems

When it comes to heating and cooling systems, there are many options you can go with. But only one option combines cost efficiency by being environmentally friendly. Geothermal HVAC systems use the energy from the ground below to heat and cool your home. This process relies on the heat transfers between the air and the ground.

How it works: Geothermal HVAC systems rely on the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which states that heat naturally travels from a hot or warm area to colder ones. The system cycles heated water or antifreeze through the underground tubing. Heat is transferred from the air in the house to the ground and vice versa. This process works in any climate and any season, because the temperature underground is constant, around 50-degrees. In the winter, the process works so that heat is absorbed indoors and heats the building. In the summer, the heat is absorbed by the liquid and the ground and therefore cooling the building. This whole system works with just a small bit of electricity to heat the water, and the energy output is five times greater.

Advantages

Save money - Although the upfront cost of a geothermal HVAC system might be costly, the system will end up saving you money. Because the system is largely self sufficient, your energy bill will go down, with some reported to having cut their utility bill 30-70%. Customers have shown to have a positive return on their investment in seven to eight years.

Long Lasting - Geothermal HVAC systems are built to last a long time - somewhere from 25-to 50-years.

Eco-friendly - Compared to a traditional HVAC system, geothermal systems are 65% more efficient. Because of this incredible efficiency, you can cut down on your carbon emissions and electricity usage. The reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by installing the system is similar to taking two cars off the street or planting 750 trees.

Safety - Geothermal units don't require natural gases or other combustible material, unlike other heating and cooling systems.

It's time for you to tap into the treasure in your own backyard. Geothermal heating has seen a rise in the last couple of years as the cost efficiency appeals to the baby boomers, while the environmental impact attracts tthe millennials If you have questions about geothermal systems, contact Jensen Well Company.
