A Geothermal heat pump faces the same issues as other sustainable, energy-saving home solutions. The geothermal system will save a significant amount of money in energy costs while helping the environment.
However, it is an investment on the front end. So you need to ask yourself making the initial investment is worth it to save hundreds of dollars over the life of the unit. It’s the classic buy now/save later dilemma.
Below, we will discuss why we believe you should consider investing in a geothermal heat pump system, and how it will benefit your home. If you have any further questions, feel free to call P&D Mechanical at 763-533-2218.
How Geothermal Heat Pumps Operate
The first 10 feet of the Earth’s surface generates temperatures that range between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit. This temperature range is perfect for cooling buildings during the summer and heating them in the winter.
P&D Mechanical technicians tap into the ground and channel the warm air into your home through the heat pump and then on the conductor. From there it goes into a system of pipes known as a heat exchanger. The exchanger maintains the air temperature as it passes through the pipes, exchanger and the pump.
When it’s cold outside, the heat pump draws the heat away from the heat exchanger and pumps it into the ductwork, which distributes the heat throughout the interior. In the summer, however, the pump does the opposite. It takes the warm air from the inside and pumps it into the heat exchanger. This operation leaves the building cool on the inside.
What are the Benefits of Geothermal Heat Pumps?
If you are wondering whether a Geothermal Heat Pump is right for your home, the consider the benefits below:
You will save up to 50% on your heating and cooling costs annually. You will notice the reduction in your energy costs within the first two months after the installation. Geothermal heat pumps utilize far less energy than a standard boiler or furnace. Yet, it produces that same level of airflow and heat through the house.
Heat pumps use sustainable, natural energy. Since there is no internal combustion, the system does produce carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, or any other type of gases. You will breathe cleaner air because there is no airflow. The system will also leave less of a carbon footprint.
New Installation & Retrofit Options
Whether you are building a brand new structure or want us to retrofit your current system, we can custom design your entire network to your exact specifications.
