As it is with traditional heating and cooling systems, geothermal heating systems require a little planning to make sure that the equipment and all of its components are the proper size and configuration for your home. It’s also important to note that adding geothermal technology to work your heating and cooling system isn’t something that you can handle yourself, so make sure you’re working with a professional geothermal contractor like Peel Heating & Air Conditioning.
The first step will be working with a geothermal HVAC system pro from Peel Heating & Air Conditioning to choose the size of geothermal system needed to heat and cool your home. No two homes in Brampton are equal, so receiving an estimate for your specific home is essential to ensuring the greatest energy-efficiency improvement in the long run.
Depending on the land or water resources available to you, there are a few different configurations to choose: horizontal loop, vertical loop or pond loop. This will be decided during your consultation so that you know exactly what you’re ending up with when it comes to installation of the system.
Regardless if you are getting geothermal for an existing system or entirely replacing your traditional system, you can take advantage of the perks of geothermal technology.
Once the utilities are marked in your yard, digging will start and the pipes will be installed in a u-shape pattern. Once the pipes are in their spot, any open channels will be backfilled and you’re free to add grass seed or sod.
with the pipes and outdoor work done, the indoor portion of your installation can begin. Installing your geothermal HVAC system inside isn’t all that different from what you’d expect of any other heating or central AC installation – removal and replacement of the old system, connection to the present duct work, and system setup and calibration. It is essential to note that each geothermal installation has its own timeline precisely estimated for that situation, so talk with Peel Heating & Air Conditioning to have them do an analysis and pass along the expected time needed for your system.
Once your new geothermal system is added, you can use it like any other heating or cooling equipment, scheduling annual maintenance to keep it operating at peak performance. Geothermal heating and cooling is as reliable as traditional heating and cooling systems, but once installed, it can offer you even better efficiency than traditional systems. While geothermal heating and cooling hasn’t completely taken over Brampton yet, you can still reap the significant energy-saving and tax-saving benefits it can provide.
