Air Ducts and Geothermal Systems Tip
As energy costs continue to rise, more and more homeowners are looking for more and more efficient ways in which to heat and cool their homes. Many have turned to geothermal heating and cooling systems in Raleigh, NC. A geothermal heating and cooling system operates by transferring between the ground and your home: in the summer heat is removed from your home, and in the winter heat is brought in. Thanks to the fairly constant temperatures beneath the surface of the ground, geothermal heat pumps are even more reliable than air source models. However, the geothermal heat pump experts at Raleigh Heating & Air also know that there are certain issues which can reduce the efficiency with which your geothermal system operates.
Like a split central heating and air conditioning system, your geothermal heating and cooling system depends on a ducted forced air distribution system in order to circulate heated and cooled air throughout your home. This means that every bit of air conditioned by your geothermal heating and cooling system must pass through your air ducts. If your ductwork is compromised in any way, it can serious reduce the efficiency with which your geothermal system operates.
Should your ductwork corrode, be torn during service, or suffer any other problems, you are going to wind up paying more money for a weaker performance from your geothermal system. That’s because it will have to work harder in order to replace the energy escaping from your air ducts. Plus, if your ductwork system was not properly installed, designed and fabricated to begin with, it may have unnecessary twists, turns and kinks that will force your system to work harder in order to distribute air through it.
