When it comes time to get new HVAC systems installed, people are often surprised by the HVAC technology options that are available.
This is common because heating and cooling generally lasts a really long time, so people are unaware of the improvements that have come along while they have been enjoying the a/c they put in fifteen years ago. Well, I recently faced this exact situation, and that is when I learned about geothermal heating and cooling. Geothermal HVAC is kind of amazing. It is more environmentally friendly than the air conditioning I currently have, and that can’t be bad, right? Admittedly, geothermal HVAC systems have a high upfront cost, but if a homeowner can afford it, the geothermal systems are so much more efficient that most people can gain back that money through lower utility bills. Thermodynamics are used for heating and cooling. The system has a bunch of pipes underground, and those pipes have liquid in them. Since the earth has heat all the time, the fluid in the pipes is used as energy to provide a/c. There are several benefits to this system, as well. IN addition to being an environmentally-friendly HVAC system, it is usually much quieter. It is much less expensive to actually operate than a traditional central air conditioner, and the experts are saying it is even safer. It is all these things, but the most important part is how well the heating and cooling work, right? Users report much better comfort in their geothermal homes.
