How a Geothermal HVAC System Can Save You Money

December 19, 2019 | Blog

Geothermal HVAC systems can heat a home by transferring solar energy absorbed by the ground. That makes them one of the most energy-efficient systems available. Here are some ways a geothermal HVAC system can save you money in your Baton Rouge, Louisiana, home:

How Geothermal HVAC Works

The ground absorbs the sun’s energy and heat, which geothermal pipes underground absorb. These pipes have a liquid that carries the heat through the pipes until it reaches the heat pump, which is where the heat is absorbed from the water and into your central heating system.

Because the temperatures below the earth’s surface are constant, you can use geothermal HVAC systems in any climate and have greater efficiency than many other types of temperature conditioners. As a result, you can save money on your energy bills.

Heating Efficiency

When used for heating, geothermal systems really maximize savings. The system relies on the constant temperature of the earth, which is a mild average of 55 degrees all year. As a result, they don’t lose efficiency like other conventional heating systems.

Low Maintenance and Greater Longevity

Depending on the type of geothermal HVAC system you choose, it can last anywhere from 25 to over 50 years. Most conventional systems have an average life of 15 years. This is due to the efficient operation and the few components of the geothermal system, which require less maintenance. Engineers and manufacturers design the geothermal systems to be shielded against damage from the elements.

Other Uses for Geothermal HVAC

In addition to conditioning the air in your home, you can use a geothermal HVAC system for the following:

  • Heating water in your home or pool.
  • Radiant floor heating.
  • Garage heating.
  • Basement heating.
  • Greenhouse heating.
  • Humidity control.

You can also use a geothermal system to melt snow or ice in your driveway for convenience. These extra benefits can significantly reduce the overall energy demand, especially with water heating.
