Traditional energy sources are derived from fossil or nuclear sources which will be depleted over time. Renewable energy sources are naturally occurring and theoretically inexhaustible such as biomass, wind, tidal, wave, and hydroelectric power.
With the volatility of the fuel markets and concerns about global warming, turning to renewable energy sources for your home is a natural solution.
Traditional Heat Pumps heat and cool the air around your home, which can fluctuate greatly — from the low teens into the 90's, causing the traditional heat pump to run longer and more frequently. Geothermal Heat Pumps use the constant temperature of the earth to heat and cool your home. In our area, the temperature of the earth below the freezing line is consistently 50-55°F all year-round.
How does it work?
Wells are drilled and water pipes are inserted into the ground. A continuous flow of water is then circulated through the pipe loop system and back into the house. During the winter, the water is heated by the warmth of the earth and during the summer it is cooled as it travels through the pipes. The geothermal heat pump then exchanges this into the properly cooled/warmed air flow and distributes it through your home's duct system.
How does it save?
The amount of electricity needed to run a geothermal system is much less, since the water temperature is already 50°F. Traditional heat pumps take heat from the ambient air outside of your home, which can fluctuate greatly, and transfer it inside inside. This causes the system to run harder and longer. Unlike a traditional heat pump, the geothermal is starting at a higher temperature, which means less time, energy and ultimately money to bring your home to a comfortable temperature.
Although the cost to install a geothermal heat pump is more than a standard heat pump due to the pipe installation, the energy savings will make up the difference in no time. Add to that the federal tax credit that is available for 30% of the cost and there couldn't be a better time to invest in our planet.
