If you have ever hosted a get-together in your backyard only to find that the loud air conditioner is the talk of the party, or if you have ever woken up in the middle of the night startled by the gas- fired furnace kicking on, then you understand that these inconveniences are the price we pay for traditional methods to heat and cool our homes.
Aside from the noise, these units typically burn some sort of fossil fuel for heating and they can use a good amount of electricity, especially in the summer, which is not great for the environment. Traditional equipment also has the concern about potential carbon monoxide poisoning, and should be checked at least annually.
There is, however, a great alternative to traditional heating and cooling methods, and that alternative is geothermal. Whether or not you have heard of geothermal heating or cooling before, the time has come to become familiar with the positive impact it can have on both you and the environment. Here’s how it works: the ground remains at a constant, comfortable temperature just below its surface all year long. Geothermal heating and cooling systems take advantage of the stable temperature underground using a piping system and with the principles of refrigeration the geothermal system can move heat quietly, the result is heating, cooling, and hot water production at remarkably high efficiency levels.
Not all geothermal systems use the ground to heat and cool. Instead they use a body of water, and the most popular method in California is to use that backyard swimming pool as a heat sink. This means that people have the advantage of heating their swimming pool while cooling their homes, by moving the heat from the home into the pool using a water-sourced heat pump. Because the process does not have combustion, there aren’t carbon monoxide poisoning worries like you can get from the traditional furnace. And, no combustion means no natural gas, oil or propane expenses, either. Geothermal Unit How It Works Additionally, geothermal heating and cooling systems qualify for a Federal tax credit for 30% of the cost of the installed system.
Federal energy credits help homeowners pay for qualified residential alternative energy equipment, like geothermal systems. It is wise to check with your tax professional to make sure that this is a good fit for your situation.
