Geothermal energy is in the company of some of the most efficient heating and cooling options available to business and home owners alike. Traditional combustion furnaces or electric heaters can ONLY obtain a maximum of 100% efficiency if circumstances are perfect, transforming one unit of energy input into one unit of heat output. A geothermal system works 3 to 5 times better moving up to 5 units of heat with one unit of energy input. This all brings out lower energy costs for you, since you are obtaining so much more heating output for every dollar you pay the utility company.
But not only will a geothermal unit assist you in saving money, it'll also help you lower your footprint on the environment. Using the earth as a heat source in the winter and a heat sink in the summer, geothermal is the most environmentally friendly HVAC option available. Once you dig down a couple of feet, the ground temperature stays reasonably consistent all through the year. By installing a geothermal unit, you are grabbing this moderated temperature and utilizing it to supply the heating and cooling your home needs.
