Geothermal Heat Pump Repair and Installation
We strive to provide our customers with the best possible service on all sides of the heating and air conditioning industry.
A geothermal heat pump operates with the same intentions as a standard system. It merely has a different medium to help with the heating load, water. Water is excellent at conducting heat and works very well for this purpose.
The temperature outside can vary drastically depending on the time of year. But the ground tends to stay about the same temperature year-round, as long as it is below the frost line. The geothermal heat pump will circulate the water through these underground lines where it will absorb the heat from the ground and be pumped back up the geothermal heat pump. The heat pump will act as a storage place for the heat until the heat can be released into your home.
Geothermal heat pumps do not utilize any fossil fuels, making them greener and more environmentally efficient than fossil fuel burning options like natural gas, propane, or oil-burning furnaces.
How does a geothermal heat pump work?
Benefits of a geothermal heat pump
Environmentally friendly: Because geothermal heat pumps do not use fossil fuels or create any exhaust, they are much more environmentally friendly than other options. You can also use a solar panel system to power the system and lower your environmental footprint even further.
Increase the efficiency: Geothermal heat pumps can be highly efficient because they use ground heat. The heat is created from the earth itself or the sun’s rays beating down on it. But it also works well in the summer too. As the ground stays a pretty constant temperature regardless of the season, you can utilize the excellent environment to supplement your air conditioning.
Cheaper operation: You will enjoy lower utility bills with increased efficiency. Along with not having to pay for fossil fuels, it will further improve the amount of savings.
Quiet: When a geothermal heat pump pumps the water, it is nearly silent within your home.
Rebates: There are many federal rebates for higher efficiency units and environmentally-friendly equipment such as geothermal heat pumps.
When to consider heat pump replacement
Whenever your geothermal equipment begins to get over ten years of age, it may be time to consider replacing your unit instead of repairing it. As your unit passes over a decade in age threshold, its parts will become obsolete, and its maintenance cost will become more than what the unit may be worth.
Older units begin to cause more and more problems as they age, so this is why it continues to become a better idea as the unit ages and the repair bill continues to increase. As units grow older, they begin to lose their efficiency. Other units come out that are more efficient, with better warranties, and will not require nearly as much maintenance as you have been putting into this one.
