If you are looking for ways to lower your heating and cooling bills, you may want to consider geothermal heating and cooling options. Geothermal energy can drastically reduce your heating and cooling bills by using the heat from the earth to heat and cool your home.
Throughout the year, the ground temperature stays fairly consistent as it absorbs all of the solar energy. So, instead of trying to heat and cool air, a geothermal system utilizes a natural heat exchange process to heat and cool your home. With an intricate pipe system and water, heat is transferred from the ground to your home and vice versa.
In the winter, water that is circulating through the pipe system will transfer heat from the ground to the geothermal unit. Here, the heat is compressed and made warmer and then it is sent as warm air into your home. Cooling your home works in the exact opposite way. Warm air is expelled from your home through the system and then transferred to the ground, which is cooler than your home at this point. This type of system does not work nearly as hard as other traditional systems in order to achieve the desired temperature. Therefore, it is highly efficient and dramatically lowers heating and cooling costs.
