Geothermal Systems

Cozy Needn’t Mean Costly

A Geothermal HVAC System Saves Money – and Energy!

Whether a home owner or a business owner, a geothermal heating and cooling system can save you a considerable amount of money: as much as 50 percent of your heating/cooling costs.

A geothermal system is one that absorbs heat stored below ground via water that circulates in the system’s underground loop.. (Underground temperatures are warmer than above-ground temperatures in winter and cooler in summer. In fact, the temperature underground tends to be constant no matter what time of year it is.)

The heat (in winter) or the coolness (in summer) is carried into your home or business via outdoor piping. This natural heating or cooling action, in tangent with the geothermal pump technology, maintains indoor spaces a comfortable and constant temperatures, without burning fossil fuel.

Another big benefit is that your home’s or business’ air quality also will improve greatly!

A geothermal system sounds new, but this technology actually has been in use for more than half a century.

Installing this type of system does cost more than a traditional heating/cooling system, as it involves drilling, digging and laying of pipes, as well as installing the pump system.

But over time, the costs savings can be significant: as in the above-mentioned saving you up to half — or more! – of your current heating/cooling costs. In time, the system will pay for itself.

Additional benefits:

  • Many cooling/heating systems aren’t constant in their heating/cooling. A geothermal system helps keep temperatures constant throughout your home/building.
  • Geothermal systems use underground, closed-loop systems. They therefore are more durable because they are protected from the elements and from temperature extremes.

You probably have many questions about whether a geothermal heating and cooling system is right for your home or business.

If so, just give one of our geothermal system experts here at Carter Mechanical a call. We’d love to provide a free consultation and help you learn more about this highly efficient and cost-savings system.
