Advantages of Geothermal Energy for Cooling

Do you dread the summer heat?  Do you ever question whether to run the air conditioning or not because you know how expensive it is?

With a Geothermal system, you won’t have to sacrifice comfort for savings.

If you live with pets or an elderly family member who needs cooler temperatures in order to have a comfortable summer, or just want to get away from oppressive humidity, Geothermal is the answer you have been looking for!

With a geothermal system, all of the equipment is housed inside. This means you don’t have to worry about the outdoor unit failing in the heat of summer or getting clogged with grass clippings and cottonwood.

Other advantages of geothermal heat and cooling are:

  • No onsite emissions of Carbon Dioxide
  • No outdoor equipment
  • Insulated cabinet and ductwork means quiet operation
  • Uses free renewable energy
  • Longer equipment life with less maintenance
  • Financing options available

When you switch from a traditional air conditioner to a geothermal system, you’ll not only save hundreds of dollars on your energy bill, but will enjoy a more efficient, more comfortable home.

The Hidden Genius of Geothermal Air Conditioning

How can the earth save you money on air conditioning?

You first may need to understand how an air conditioner really works.

Alternative cooling systems that use an outdoor unit use the outside air temperature to reject heat. This process is more efficient the cooler the outdoor air is. You might be asking yourself, “but if the air outside is cool do we really need air conditioning?”

Exactly! When you need cooling inside the most, it’s hot outside - 80 degrees or hotter - and the air conditioner is working very hard to get the job done.

Geothermal systems, on the other hand, are connected to pipes in the earth, which is a constant 50 – 55 degrees Fahrenheit, so the process of rejecting heat is very efficient. In fact, a geothermal system will use less than half the energy of a regular air conditioner to keep you cool! Systems can also be equipped to make free hot water while keeping you cool too.

How Does It Work?

Here’s what you need to know:
  • Geothermal heat and air cooling systems simply move heat from the house to the earth in the summer or vice versa in the winter.
  • Even when temperatures outdoors are fluctuating, the temperature 4-6 feet below ground stays fairly consistent at anywhere from 50-55 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on where you live.
  • Geothermal systems are one of the most reliable and energy-efficient cooling systems available. They use 25%-70% less energy than other systems, and eliminate your dependence on propane and gas.

Geothermal Heat and Cooling Systems are Cost Effective!

Great news – your hard-earned money is well spent when you invest in geothermal. If you’re tired of spending thousands on energy costs every year, it’s time to make the switch to Geothermal.

Turn Earth into Energy

Have you ever wondered how you can use the natural sunlight to make your home more energy efficient?

Have you considered a geothermal heat pump system for your home?

Do you know all the facts about renewable energy?

According to scientists at Columbia, “in one hour, the Earth receives enough energy from the sun to meet all of mankind’s energy needs for one year.”

Can you imagine how much money you’d save on energy costs if all you had to do was harness the power of the sun? There are some obstacles in the way, of course – the sun doesn’t always shine, and the energy has to be stored somewhere, that somewhere is the earth. 47% of the Sun’s energy is absorbed by the earth, which makes it an ideal and plentiful source of free energy for your home.

Instead of turning to solar power for your energy efficiency, make the switch to a geothermal heat pump!

Geothermal Can Get Your Home to “Net Zero”

If efficiency is important to you, geothermal is the way to go. Reduce your carbon footprint and cut down on your costs at the same time by only using what you can produce. In addition, by capitalizing on and drawing on latent heat available in the heating and cooling process, geothermal heat pumps can actually provide a free way to heat water as a side benefit of their normal operations!

Geothermal Lasts Longer

All the benefits of your geothermal system can be enjoyed virtually maintenance-free for many years.  Geothermal systems have a life expectancy almost twice that of alternative systems since all of the equipment is indoors it is not subjected to the effects of harsh weather. The geothermal loop that exchanges energy with the ground will last for multiple generations!

Geothermal Heat Pump: How It Works

You’ve probably heard of geothermal heat pumps and heating and cooling systems, but have you ever considered one for your home?

Are you concerned that you don’t know all of the facts about energy efficient heating and cooling?
Making the decision to invest in a geothermal is a big deal, and you should understand the entire process involved before you write a check!

Geothermal heat pumps are self-contained units that efficiently heat and cool your home while providing hot water. Geothermal heat pumps are quiet and reliable, and harness the renewable energy generated by the sun that’s stored in the ground near the Earth’s surface.

Geothermal Heat Pumps Reject Heat during Summer Months

Geothermal systems transfer heat from buildings into the ground to provide cooling, utilizing the constant cool temperature of the Earth to do so. Ground loops transfer the heat to and from the ground through closed loops of plastic pipes buried either horizontally or vertically in the ground below the frost line.

During the summer months, unwanted heat indoors is transferred back outside through the water in the pipes for cooling by the Earth. The cool water is then circulated to the geothermal system indoors to provide efficient air conditioning.

Cut Your Carbon Emissions!

According to, “geothermal heat pumps can cut carbon emissions from building energy use by 50%, and total residential site energy consumption is cut in half.”
Not only will a geothermal heat pump save you money, but it will help save the Earth, too!

How Can Michigan Energy Services Help?

Michigan Energy Services has friendly, knowledgeable and helpful technicians available to answer your questions and install your geothermal system, and we also offer financing!

We believe that clean, quiet and efficient energy shouldn’t break the bank. For more information and to find out how to get started, contact us today!
