When it comes to heating systems for your Ingram home, there are many options, and the experts at Trade-Mark Air Conditioning can help! Geothermal heating is an alternative to traditional electric and natural gas furnaces that are more environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient.
What Is Geothermal Heating?
Geothermal heating is a technology that uses the natural heat of the Earth to provide warm air in your home during the winter. The ground on your property maintains a consistent temperature, even during the winter, so this is a reliable heat source.
How a Geothermal Heating System Works
Geothermal heating systems include a unit that is mounted outside your home and a series of tubes that are installed at a specific depth underground. The system does not require any changes to the foundation of your home. Instead, we place the tubes close to your home in your yard. A liquid runs through the tubes and is heated by the surrounding soil. The liquid is then used to warm air to heat your home.
Energy Efficiency of a Geothermal Heating System
Geothermal heating does require a higher upfront investment compared to most natural gas and electric furnaces, but you see a return on the investment in the form of reduced energy costs each month. You no longer need natural gas for heating, and a geothermal heating system uses less electricity compared to an electric furnace. The design of the geothermal unit also offers greater energy efficiency because it does not need a fuel source to heat the air. The average home in Ingram can save up to 70% on heating costs.
