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!
