Cooler weather is around the corner for residents in Yulee, Florida. That means a break from the oppressive heat and a time to start thinking about your heating system. If you’re looking for an HVAC unit that provides consistent comfort through the year, consider investing in geothermal heating and cooling.
What Makes Geothermal Heating and Cooling Different?
Geothermal heating and cooling systems are a variation of heat pump. Rather than generating their own heat, heat pumps exchange heat with another source. Most heat pumps exchange heat with the air, but that can become problematic when the outdoor air reaches extremes.
A geothermal heat pump, on the other hand, exchanges heat with the ground. When you install a geothermal system in your home, a service technician will place rods in the ground. This is where refrigerant will flow and exchange heat with the surrounding earth.
There are several types of geothermal systems. Whether you choose a horizontal, vertical, pond/lake or open-loop system, there’s an option right for your property.
Biggest Benefits of Investing in a Geothermal Heat Pump
No matter what the weather is like above the surface, the ground maintains a temperature around 55 degrees a few feet below. That gives geothermal heat pumps a consistent and reliable source with which it can exchange heat.
This makes geothermal heat pumps capable of supplying satisfying comfort year-round while also cutting utility costs and lowering your carbon footprint. You might even be eligible for an Energy-Efficient Property Credit.
