Why Choose Geothermal Installation for Your Hagerstown Area Home?
If you are like most people, you probably wrote off geothermal systems from the beginning as too expensive to install. While it is true that geothermal systems can cost more to put in than some other types of home heating and cooling systems, it is hardly a prohibitive factor. In fact, there are plenty of benefits of geothermal systems that can offset this large initial investment.
Geothermal Home Heating Efficiency
Geothermal heating and cooling systems actually have very few moving parts. They work by cycling fluid through a loop of pipe underground where it can absorb or release heat into the surrounding ground. In the winter, this fluid carries heat back into your home where it can be released and dispersed throughout your living areas. In the summer, the process works in reverse, and the heat is absorbed from your home and released underground.
Because the process is so mechanically straightforward, little wear is placed on the parts of the system, and the end result is that geothermal systems can last much longer than just about any other type of home heating and cooling system. This means that, while you spend more up front, you will not have to pay to replace your geothermal system for a long time if at all.
Geothermal heat pumps, like conventional heat pumps, do not actually generate heat. Instead they extract, concentrate and direct it to keep your home at the desired temperature. This process uses much less energy than it would take to actually generate all the heat necessary to keep your home warm as furnaces and other home heating systems do. The same is true of the cooling power of heat pumps in the summer, making geothermal installations the all–around economical option in terms of energy efficiency.
Better Heating in Cooler Climates
Geothermal heat pumps also provide better and more effective heating than their more conventional counterparts when the temperature drops down below freezing as it often does in these areas in the winter. While regular heat pumps have to extract heat from the air to keep your home warm, geothermal systems take it from the ground, which is always at least a few degrees warmer than the air. And that makes it easier for geothermal systems to keep your home warm no matter how cold it gets outside.
