Advantages of Geothermal Heating and Cooling
Geothermal heating and cooling has been around for more than 70 years. With rising energy prices and growing environmental concerns, this technology is a great option for residents of Norfolk, Chesapeake, and Portsmouth, VA.
According to the Department of Energy, geothermal heat pumps use 20-50% less energy than conventional systems. This means that they deliver $3 to $6 worth of heat for every dollar spent on energy, and they can help with water heating at the same time. Additionally, geothermal heat pumps have an expected lifespan of over 20 years. They’re also quieter and reduce temperature swings when the system cycles on and off.
Geothermal HVAC Design Options
Geothermal systems use ground-source or water-based loops to transfer energy. In the winter, warmth from the ground transfers into your home. In the summer, excess heat is released under the ground or into a water body, such as a pond. There are several possible design options depending on your property’s features. Our service techs can develop a customized design that’s efficient, cost-effective, and complies with environmental regulations. Learn more about your options.
- Closed-loop systems are available in horizontal and vertical configurations depending on available space and local bedrock.
- If you have a pond or lake on your property, you may be able to use it as a natural source of geothermal energy.
- Open-loop geothermal systems discharge water directly into a surface water body or specially designed well.
