Geothermal HVAC Systems vs Conventional HVAC Systems
Ever wonder how geothermal HVAC systems work? Well, they’re actually not that different from conventional air conditioners, with a few exceptions, of course. The biggest difference is that they use the temperature underground to regulate your home’s heating and cooling rather than the outside air.
Geothermal systems do have a greater upfront cost than traditional systems, but at least some of that is offset by lower utility costs due to significantly better efficiency. It’s also worth mentioning that the indoor units last for about 25 years and the ground loop lasts for roughly 50 years. Central air conditioners and furnaces typically last for 15 years or less.
Plumbing Repairs and Installations from Better Efficiency Is Also Better for the Environment
On top of being energy efficient, geothermal systems harness the power of a resource that is both clean and renewable. Green building practices, like the use of geothermal heat pumps, help to protect the environment for future generations. The survival of countless species of plants and animals hinges on whether or not our species is responsible in the way we treat the planet.
