The Benefits Of GeoThermal Energy

The Benefits Of GeoThermal Energy 

At Symbiont Service Corp we certainly understand the benefits of GeoThermal Energy and we get asked by potential customers all of the time to explain the benefits so they can make an informed decision on heating and cooling for their swimming pool water. Geothermal systems are considered to be the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly heat pumps on the market today. Geothermal technology also provides years of reliable safe comfort.

The benefits of geothermal energy include:

  1. Quiet operation. There are no noisy units that will disturb the enjoyment you take out of your outside environment. Your neighbors will thank you!
  2. Geothermal is more efficient than ordinary heating and air conditioning units because the systems deliver more energy than they use.
  3. A geothermal system will offer a more precise distribution of cooled or heated air, year round. You will not have to deal with hot spots and cold spots and this is important for both pool owners and homeowners in Florida.
  4. Geothermal technology is more reliable than most air conditioning units and heat pumps. Geothermal typically require less maintenance than other heating and cooling units.
  5. Environmentally friendly systems. The Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency note that geothermal is the most “environmentally-friendly way to heat and cool your home” or your swimming pool or both! Geothermal systems don’t emit carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases that are considered contributors to environmental air pollution.

If you’re in the process of a swimming pool upgrade or renovation and want to install a system that can both heat and cool your swimming pool water, give our geothermal system installation professionals a call for more information.

Origins Of Symbiont Service And Its Geothermal Heating Device

Sandy KingOrigins Of Symbiont Service And Its Geothermal Heating Device

The origins of Symbiont and its geothermal heating device began when Sandy King, now owner and president of Symbiont Service Corp was in college pursuing an oceanographic engineering degree.

The first symbiont was build in 1983 by Sandy, with help from her father, Roy King founder of Symbiont Service Corp. “I needed a project for my degree and wanted to investigate geothermal state-of-the-art pool heating methods,” Sandy said.

“In 1983, as part of my project I built a prototype meter and used an aquaculture tank filled with tilapia.” Read More »

Is Your Pool Water Cool In The Morning?

Is Your Pool Water Cool In The Morning?

Following this long, hot summer and the passing of Labor Day, Florida pool owners may be faced with pool water that is cool in the morning. There are many ways to address this, one of which is by adding geo-thermal units to the pool. This will keep the water at a temperature that is enjoyable for you and your family.

Is Your Pool Water Cool In The Morning?

pool water cool in the morning Florida pool owners know they are lucky in the fact that they don’t always have to consider closing their pools once Labor Day rolls around. Labor Day is the traditional pool-closing time in many areas of the country. Labor Day, as many pool owners understand marks the typical “end of summer” and many pool owners work with their pool service contractors to get the pool ready for the long winter months ahead. If you’re not ready to say good-bye to summer and to swimming, but your pool water is cool in the morning, here are some options to consider. Read More »

Cooling Your Pool

Cooling Your Pool

It’s summer here in Florida. Temperatures are firmly set among the 90’s and as all Floridians know, the heat is nearly inescapable.

Florida swimming pool owners understand that sometimes having a swimming pool that is too “hot” to swim in is an issue. Concern regarding a pool circles around heating. Although at Symbiont Service Corp heating a pool is second nature with our Symbiont GeoThermal Pool Heater, we know that keeping a pool from getting too hot is just as important. No one wants to swim in bath water in the heat of a Florida summer day!

Luckily, the same exact GeoThermal system that heats your pool can function as a cooling device as well. Furthermore, this is all done without any extra, intervening mechanism to complicate the seamless and straightforward approach to GeoThermal energy. Cooling your pool is possible with the installation of a GeoThermal system.

In the winter, Symbiont units transfer heat from a natural water source such as an aquifer well or a lake and transfers it to your pool. This is all done without any commingling of the water, and in an entirely environmentally friendly way. In the summer, Symbiont units are equipped to reverse the cycle and transfer the heat from the pool to the natural water source.

Cooling your pool

Typically the temperature of a swimming pool in Florida during the summer months will be in the 90’s. So enjoy your summer and jump into a refreshingly cooled pool using the environmentally friendly method of GeoThermal energy and the Symbiont. Get the temperature you want when you want it!

Is Geothermal Energy New?

The earliest forms of geothermal energy were present during the Paleolithic Period through hot springs. Although a natural phenomenon, the mere existence of hot springs provides historical proof that people, for thousands of centuries, have had some basic understanding of geothermal energy. The oldest stone pool that incorporates the geothermal method dates back to 3rd century BC. Atop Mount Li in China’s Qinling mountain range, this antiquated stone spa, the first manmade, geothermally heated pool, was erected.

Over the next thousand years, humanity would inevitably construct more and more public baths, all of which used natural, geothermal energy. This ranges from the historic Aquae Sulis in Bath, England, to the famous, ancient bath houses built in Italy during the span of the Roman Empire. Today, the world’s oldest geothermal district heating system can be found in Chaudes-Aigues, France. It was built in the 14th century and still functions for the district. It wasn’t until 1892 in Boise, Idaho that an American city used geothermal power for heating purposes.

In 1852 the heat pump was created. It was essentially an early prototype of modern geothermal air controlling systems. Unfortunately, this technology did not find ubiquity until the 1940’s. Between that timeframe, in 1904, geothermal power generators were invented in Italy as a way to provide electricity in households. These power generators, and their cubical shape that bears a similarity to The Symbiont, would pay dividends towards the development of geothermal energy. The strides made over the years have led to better, more efficient systems, but at its core, the way we use geothermal energy hasn’t changed. Whether it’s to heat a pool or cool a home, geothermal energy still provides a clean, renewable, and cost-efficient way to suit your needs.
