Geothermal Heating System Basics
To break down a geothermal heating system simply, this type of unit uses the sun’s power or heat that is stored in the Earth. The geothermal heating system has pipes within the ground that are filled with a water-based solution and that solution is directed to the heat pump. The heat pump removes the warmth from the water and sends it through your central air. The water solution is then circulated back to the pipes. Although this type of heating system can have high initial costs, they typically pay for themselves within 5-10 years. You also should consider the fact that this is not a do-it-yourself installation project, however, the professionals at Dan Wood Company have the training and knowhow upgrade your home’s heating to this system.
Benefits of Geothermal Systems
Talking about geothermal heating systems can garner wavering reactions. At first, they sound amazing (and they are,) then the cost is discussed (which can make people back away from this option,) and finally, the benefits are drawn out. The benefits of geothermal heating systems are significant and worth noting, so here are just a few of the best ones:
- Clean, renewable energy- this is one of the few heating systems that specifically uses the warmth from the sun to function. Because of this, it lowers your carbon footprint and overall energy use
- Energy savings- it isn’t surprising to see 30-60 percent savings on your electric bill during the winter. However, this system can also save 20-50 percent on your electric bill in the summer
- Timeless installation- whether you decide to install this heating system while your home I being built, or if your home is 100 years old--it can be done! The age of your home is not a huge factor in the actual installation
- Long live geothermal heating- most central heating systems usually last around 10 to 15 years. The indoor component of a geothermal heating system can last about 25 years and the outdoor loop can last up to 50
