Get on board for Geothermal Day!
To help spread the word, Bosch Thermotechnology is sponsoring Geothermal on October 20, 2015. You can find out more at GeothermalDay.com.
Geothermal heating and cooling systems take advantage of the stable temperature (about 55 degrees F) underground using a piping system, commonly referred to as a "loop." The water circulates in the loop to exchange heat between the earth and the home using a ground-source heat pump.
Geothermal heating and cooling systems are 400 percent to 600 percent efficient and can cut heating, cooling, and hot water costs by up to 80 percent. The only energy required is for pumps, condenser and fans for the ground-source heat pump operation. The loop can be horizontal or vertical, depending on the soil and site conditions. In some cases ground water can be used as well.
Why choose geothermal for your home?
Cost savings: Most geothermal customers can see savings of fifty to seventy percent on their monthly heating and cooling costs. The upfront installation cost is also greatly reduced by a 30 percent federal tax credit available through the end of 2016, electric co-op rebates and other local programs.
Eco-friendly: Geothermal heat pumps burn no fossil fuels and the U.S. Department of Energy has stated they are the safest for our environment. They produce no greenhouse gasses and leave the smallest CO2 footprint.
Clutter free: With a geothermal system, there is no outdoor equipment to clutter the exterior presentation of your home. That means you don't have to worry about special landscaping to hide an ugly air conditioning unit, no cleaning of yard debris out of coils, and, best of all, no humming, vibrating or clanking noise near your outdoor living spaces.
Adaptability:Geothermal systems are extremely adaptable and are the best option in a variety of scenarios. Commercial, residential, new construction, retro fit, conditioned air, floor radiant heating, hot water heating, geothermal can do it all.
