Geo-thermal systems use the Earth’s temperature to provide a warm or cool environment depending on the season. It extracts heat from the ground to heat your home or business during colder months. In the warmer months it does the opposite.
RELATED: What is Geothermal Drilling?
When installing geothermal systems in Danville we follow a set of steps. First the well is drilled using specialized equipment. Then we will install an energy-efficient heat pump and closed-loop ductwork which extends into the well, through the pump and into the vents in the home or business.
A geothermal system is more energy-efficient than traditional systems. In fact, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) characterizes such systems as the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean, and cost-effective means available for heating and cooling.
Geothermal systems also help reduce the amount of electricity you are using to heat and cool your home. The set up costs are higher than a traditional HVAC system but in the long run you will save money.
Another benefit is that geothermal systems require little maintenance and can last for long periods of time.
A Geothermal system is also better for the environment. The heat pump doesn’t emit carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide or other greenhouse gases. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 40% of the CO2 emissions in the country come from heating and cooling, about the same amount as that from vehicles. It is estimated that putting a geo-thermal system in a home is equal, in greenhouse gas reduction, to planting an acre of trees.
