The ground absorbs nearly half of the solar energy our planet receives. As a result, the earth remains at a constant, moderate temperature just below its surface all year round.
However, air temperature varies greatly from summer to winter, making air source (traditional) heating and cooling least efficient when you need it the most.
Geothermal heating and cooling systems take advantage of the stable temperature underground using a piping system, commonly referred to as a “loop.” Water circulates in the loop to exchange heat between your home, the ground source heat pump, and the earth, providing geothermal heating, cooling, and hot water at remarkably high efficiencies.
Are you paying too much on your heating, cooling and hot water electric bills? Geothermal is a great way to cut down on those energy costs.
In fact, you can save up to 80% each year on heating, cooling and hot water bills just by switching from a traditional HVAC system to a ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling system
According to the US Department of Energy, the typical American family spends at least $2,000 a year on home electric bills. Heating, cooling and hot water costs combined make up over 70% of the typical electric bill, so installing energy efficient HVAC systems, like a ClimateMaster geothermal system, may be one of the smartest home improvement investments you can make to lower energy bills.
This is a chart showing approximately what a lower energy bill with geothermal looks like.
