Homeowners all over the country are looking for ways to keep their homes comfortable while saving money on their energy costs. Many homeowners are also looking to reduce the impact they are placing on the environment while keeping their homes comfortable.
There are many ways to cut energy costs and reduce your environmental footprint, but geothermal heating is one of the most efficient and effective ways. Aside from this major benefit, there are plenty of other reasons to choose a geothermal system for your home. Keep reading to learn more.
Why Choose a Geothermal System?
Geothermal heat pumps work by using buried pipes to extract temperate air from deep in the ground, then transferring into your home for optimal comfort. This process is reversed in the summer, and hot air is extracted from your home and transferred into the ground. This is the reason geothermal systems are so energy efficient, since they are not working overtime to heat and cool air for your home.
The main unit in a geothermal system is the pump. There are no harmful fuels used to run the system and no emissions pouring into the air. Homeowners also enjoy the fact that there is no bulky equipment lying around inside or outside. Another advantage of these systems is that geothermal units tend to have a longer lifespan than traditional heating units such as furnaces.
Additional benefits of geothermal systems include:
- Low maintenance costs
- Low operational costs compared to other systems
- Increased comfort
- Potential for tax rebates (Read about the 2016 tax incentive)
