About six feet below the earth’s surface, the ground remains at a constant temperature year round. In the winter months, the ground is warmer than the surface and in the summer it is cooler. Using a series of liquid-filled pipes buried in the earth outside your home, a geothermal system gathers the heat from the earth and distributes it throughout your home when it’s cold outside. In the summer months, the system moves the heat from your home to cool it.
What Can a Geothermal System do for You?
Use free fuel to heat your home in the winter and cool it in the summer
Get 95% of your hot water for free
Reducing heating and cooling costs by 50 to 70%
Recoup your Investment in 3 to 5 years!
Of course a geothermal system, complete with pipes, compressor, heat exchanger and geothermal unit, and the associated labor necessary to excavate and install the loops of pipe will cost significantly more than a conventional furnace. However, a highly efficient geothermal system will save you so much in fuel bills alone that it’s possible to recoup your start-up costs in 3 to 5 years.
