You’ve heard all about it by now; go green with geothermal systems! But it’s summertime, and honestly, all you want to do is KEEP COOL!
Here’s how it works:
The earth has a pretty constant temperature. Even with all that sunshine shooting at it all day, the temperatures under the surface are maintained. So geothermal comes along and taps into that static temperature by taking advantage and attaching your house to it!
Think, basically, of a giant loop or pipe; on top of the surface, in your house, it’s hotter than under the surface. So the pipe magically sucks up all the hot inside and pumps it down BELOW the surface into the consistently cool underground. But it doesn’t just dump it off! The loop is a LOOP because it loops back to your house!
Wait, what? You’re pumping air from your house back to your house?
Basically, yes. (VERY basically.)
During the trip, when the air was down in the cold earth, the air got cold, so your return loop is bringing COLD air into the house. It’s brilliant!
And did you know, that with most of the unit underground AND fewer moving parts than traditional heating & cooling options, geothermal LASTS for about 25 years? That’s WAY better than the average of 15 years for other types of heating and cooling.
So if you’re looking to upgrade your heating and cooling system, or are shopping your options for that new house you’re building, take a good look at geothermal. You’ll get way more bang for your buck, and it’s environmentally friendly, too. You’ll love it!
