Seeking Energy Efficiency? Geothermal Is Key

If you’re seeking energy efficiency, geothermal is key for homeowners in the Englewood, Florida area.

What is geothermal technology?

It’s been around since the mid-1850s, and has been available commercially for use in homes and businesses since the 1940s. The geothermal professionals from Symbiont Service Corp say there are more than one million units in use today. Geothermal heat pump technology has been proven to be among the most energy-efficient and reliable HVAC systems on the market today.

Seeking Energy Efficiency? Geothermal Is Key

A geothermal heat pump uses the earth as its heat reservoir with underground circulating water lines. These underground lines make use of moderating ground temps to gather heat during the colder months of the year and dissipate it during the hot summer months. Because the earth absorbs the heat from the sun, it will retain the temperature in depths of up to twenty feet. At depths greater than twenty feet, the earth stays at a constant 50-75 efficiency

When you compare a conventional air heat pump, the operating costs and maintenance of a geothermal heat pump brings with it a savings up between 30-60 percent. The percentage of savings is based on the geographical location of the underground circulating water lines, the soil conditions and the area of the country in which you live. A geothermal system has an energy efficiency rating of more than 300 percent. It is able to move three to five times more heat energy than the electrical energy it consumes to operate.

In years past, heat sink and geothermal heating systems weren’t as popular as conventional heating systems because of their higher upfront cost and the cost of installation. Recent improvements in technology have lead to lowered cost for the system and to even higher efficiency. Ask us for an idea on how long it will take before you realize a return on your initial investment — typically, customers see a return in energy savings in three to ten years.

You can combine a geothermal system with a solar system as a way to realize even higher energy savings and energy independence. Another benefit to consider when looking at the cost of the unit, is that they have a longer service life than other types of heating units and can be retrofitted into your existing building or swimming pool or installed as part of a new home or business build or a swimming pool project.
