Geothermal heating is a great way to take advantage of an often overlooked natural phenomenon: the geothermal energy right beneath your home! Air temperatures fluctuate with the seasons, but the temperature of the ground under your house stays fairly constant. Even when temperatures are freezing outside your door, the heat trapped beneath your home will be there to keep your family warm.
Geothermal systems take advantage of this natural resource by circulating heat between the ground and your home. Similar to a heat pump, geothermal heating is done by taking the heat from the ground and circulating it around your home. During the summer, this process can be reversed for the opposite effect.
Friendly to Your Environment & Your Budget
Did you know that the use of a geothermal system can reduce your energy bills by up to 80%? The moderate temperature of the soil makes it possible for homes to receive year-round heating and cooling at the fraction of the cost of a gas or electric-powered system. In communities that value lessening their environmental impact, these systems are a wonderful option since they require no burning of fossil fuels. Geothermal heating is also perfect for houses that have limited access to gas or electricity.
As long as there is property beneath your home, geothermal heating is a possibility. Give Aire Serv in Sioux Falls a call today to schedule your appointment.
