The idea behind geothermal energy is simple. The sun heats up the earth, which stores a vast reservoir of heat near the ground surface, which is easily accessible.
A geothermal system transfers heat from the earth to the home in the winter. In summer, the process is reversed, with heat being dispelled into the earth.
With geothermal systems, there’s no burning of fossil fuels. These systems operate at a higher efficiency too, because heat energy is being moved, not created.
Today, more than 650,000 geothermal heat pumps are installed in the US, resulting in yearly savings of 26 trillion BTUs of fossil fuels and reducing electricity demand by 1.7 million kW. This is the equivalent of: • Taking 840,000 cars off the road • Planting 250 million trees • Elimination of nearly four million tons of CO2 • Saving 14 million barrels a year of crude oil
Geothermal systems deliver up to four times more energy than they consume and operate up to four times more efficiently than ordinary heating and cooling systems.
The National Renewable Energy Lab reports geothermal systems can produce large savings every year.
According to the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy, geothermal energy is the most cost-effective, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly space conditioning system available.
Save money and protect the environment.
Geothermal systems are eligible for a 30% federal income tax credit. They also qualify for Home Performance with Energy Star eligible measures, including a rebate up to $5,000.
We have been installing and servicing Geothermal Heating and Cooling systems since 1995.
