Geothermal heating and cooling systems provide an innovative new way to keep your Louisville home comfortable throughout the year. This type of HVAC installation can replace both your furnace and traditional central air conditioner with an eco-friendly alternative. Our experienced service technicians at Birkhead Co. can determine whether a geothermal installation is right for your home. We’ll help you find the right path to raking in those coveted energy savings.
What is a Geothermal Air Conditioner and Heater?
A geothermal heating and cooling system features a series of liquid-filled loops that are buried beneath the earth. These might run in a series of long trenches or a single deeper set of loops, depending on the layout of your property and the available space around your home.
Geothermal systems draw on the steady year-round temperature that’s found beneath the ground. In summer, the ground is cooler than the air outside. Liquid that’s circulated beneath the surface will disperse heat there, bringing a refreshing breath of cool air to the home. In winter, temperatures underground are warmer than what you’ll experience outside. During this season, your geothermal system will draw heat from underground and bring it back into the home.
Benefits of Geothermal Energy Technology
Geothermal energy technology is extremely efficient. According to the Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, a geothermal heat pump can cut your energy bills by as much as 65 percent compared to more traditional HVAC systems.
Properly maintained, your geothermal heat pump should enjoy a long lifespan, further enhancing your potential savings. The underground loops for this type of system can last for over 50 years, while the aboveground technology is good for around 25 years. With the energy savings that these installations can deliver, you can expect your geothermal system to pay you back in about ten years – long before it’s reached the end of its usefulness.
