If an an endless reservoir of energy existed right beneath your feet, would you tap into it? If you answered yes, you may be surprised to learn it really does exist. The ground absorbs and stores the sun’s energy all year, even during cold weather. Geothermal systems allow you to access this energy, and provide your home with the most efficient, renewable heating and cooling in existence.
With a geothermal heating system, pipes are installed about six feet below the ground’s surface. If you have enough space, they can be installed horizontally, but they work just as well when vertically installed for homes that have limited yard space.
Like an air-source heat pump, ground-source systems change energy in the environment into heat for your home. The system can switch over to pump heat from your living space back into the ground. Geothermal systems are more expensive than air-source systems, but as they can outperform air-source heat pumps by about 45 percent, they’re more than capable of returning your initial investment.
