The Basics of Geothermal Cooling
Are you considering investing your money in a geothermal cooling system?
Before you make any decisions, you need some basic information. First of all: what is a geothermal cooling system? Essentially, it is a central HVAC system that transfers heat to and from the ground. So, geothermal systems use the ground or groundwater as a heat source, or sink. This means that geothermal systems typically use anywhere from 25% to 50% less electricity than other heating & cooling systems.
There are also several beneficial environmental benefits to cooling your home using geothermal energy. In fact, geothermal energy is recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as being the most environmentally safe heating and cooling system out there!
Why? For one thing, the rate of CO2 emissions is almost nonexistent, especially when compared with that of coal and other types of fossil fuels. In addition, the footprint for extracting geothermal energy is relatively small.
Both geothermal heating and cooling systems are big-time money and energy savers in the long run, particularly if you plan to be in your home for at least ten years or more. These systems have a much longer shelf life than their counterpart heating & cooling systems, they’re incredibly energy-efficient. As a bonus, you may even qualify for a 30% federal tax credit when you install a geothermal system in your home!
