One of the most appealing aspects of geothermal heating and cooling to the normal homeowner is the savings they can expect to receive. Depending on your current system, geothermal systems can save you in the range of 30% and 60% on your operating expenses.
Geothermal heating and cooling systems are complicated systems when you realize that they are converting electricity created by geothermal energy. Put simply, geothermal systems use two loops to transfer geothermal energy to your home’s heating and cooling system to keep you comfy.
Installing a geothermal heating and cooling system to your home needs a plan exclusive to your installation. No two projects are the same, which is why it’s crucial to get the help of an expert to sort through the choices with you, from size and cost, to loop choice, digging and installation.
Installing your geothermal system underground isn’t the only way to reap all of its benefits. If you have a pond or lake, a closed loop system can be put in near the bottom of your pond or lake and utilize the consistent temperatures at the bottom to provide you with a cozy home.
The amount of space you need to get a geothermal system will differ based on the lay of your land and the immediate surrounding area. Working with a pro will let you know whether a vertical or horizontal loop is best and they will outline the requirements for your specific project.
