Raleigh Geothermal HVAC Systems and Service
If you’re looking for ways to cut down on your heating and cooling costs and make your home more eco–friendly at the same time, call Raleigh Heating & Air to learn more about geothermal systems. Alternative heating sources are gaining popularity among homeowners, and geothermal systems are one of the most efficient and effective options. These systems use very little energy to operate the heat pump and can keep your home comfortable in a clean, sustainable way. Raleigh Heating & Air is the company to call for geothermal system installation, replacement, maintenance and repair service, so talk to our staff today about the geothermal options available to you. We proudly carry ClimateMaster and WaterFurnace geothermal heat pumps.
How Geothermal Systems Work
Unlike the air, which fluctuates greatly in temperature, the ground beneath the frost line maintains a fairly constant temperature. During a geothermal system installation, a series of trenches are dug on your property. A pipe system is installed below the frost line, and the liquid flowing through this loop system absorbs the heat stored in the ground. The liquid is piped back to the geothermal system’s heat pump, where the heat is extracted and transferred inside to heat your home. The reverse happens in the summer to cool your home.
Unlike more conventional heating options, a geothermal system does not use combustion to create energy. Instead it utilizes existing ambient energy and, through a process called heat transfer, moves that energy into your home to heat your house. A great feature of geothermal systems is that the heat transfer process is easily reversed. This means that you can also use the geothermal heat pump to cool your home in the summer, as it will extract heat from your home and move it outside. If this green technology sounds like a home comfort system that you’d be interested in learning more about, call Raleigh Heating & Air today.
Benefits of a Geothermal System
Because heat pumps do not actively heat or cool air, they cost very little to operate. Only a small amount of electricity is used during the heating and cooling process, meaning that you not only cut down on your carbon footprint, but also on the costs of heating and cooling your home. With regular maintenance, you can cut down on repairs and extend the life of the entire system.
Geothermal heat pumps are also very versatile and dependable. The heat transfer process is easily reversed, allowing the system to heat and cool your home as necessary. Because the temperature beneath the ground is more constant than that of the air, a geothermal heating and cooling system is more dependable than other alternative heating and cooling options such as air–source heat pumps.
It is easy to see why geothermal heating and cooling systems have become such a popular residential comfort system option. The unique technology allows you to maintain comfortable temperatures with less expense and using sustainable energy. With a proper installation, along with professional maintenance and repair service by Raleigh Heating & Air, you can get years of reliable performance from your geothermal system.
