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.

What are efficient ways to heat swimming pool water?

What are efficient ways to heat swimming pool water? Symbiont Service Corp. professionals answer 

There are many ways in which to heat the water in your swimming pool. The geothermal professionals from Symbiont Service Corp. regularly get asked, “what are efficient ways to heat swimming pool water?” One of the best ways is by using a heat pumps. This piece of equipment provides an energy-efficient way to keep the pool water warm. The way a pool water heat pump works is that it utilizes electricity to transfer heat from the area surrounding the pump aka the ambient air, through the device and then transfers it into the pool water. Rather than generating heat, as most other models do, the use of the ambient air to heat the pool water is a more energy efficient way to extend your pool swim season.

To maximize energy savings, you will want to work with your pool heating professional to make certain you are investing in the proper size equipment for your unique swimming pool. Read More »

GeoThermal is the Best “Life Long” Investment

Symbiont GeoThermal Heat PumpWhat is the absolute bottom line in efficient pool heating and cooling? We can prove that GeoThermal is your best option for life-long efficiency and savings.

What method of pool heating has the lowest overall lifecycle cost?

There are three components to consider when answering that question: the expected life of the equipment, the ongoing operational cost and the initial investment in the equipment.

  1. Life Of The Equipment – Is typically much longer for Symbiont GeoThermal pool heaters. The Symbiont’s do not have coils that are exposed to the air (which may have corrosive salt/chlorine in it) like Air Source Heat Pumps. Nor do Symbiont’s have burners/heat exchangers that are exposed to the air like gas heaters. The Symbiont GeoThermal pool heater components are double protected, not only does the whole system have a painted aluminum shell, but the compressor has an additional protective and sound deadening case around it, even the coils have a thick composite case around them. Consequently, Symbiont units will typically last about 20 years in a normal environment, while other pool heaters have a much shorter life (typically 3-10 years) resulting in frequent change outs and down time.
  2. Operation Cost – The Symbiont operational energy costs can be as much as 90% lower than the energy costs of propane heaters. This gives ongoing operational savings when using a Symbiont pool heating system.
  3. Total Life Cycle Costs – Costs are less for the Symbiont’s due to the above factors of lower operational cost and fewer change outs needed due to the longer life span of the GeoThermal units. Even though GeoThermal pool heating systems have higher initial investment, they have the lowest long term overall lifecycle costs while achieving a comfortable pool temperature. This results in an outstanding payback on the initial investment, typically reaching return on investment within 2-5 years.

And the bottom-line: GeoThermal has the lowest long-term costs on the market.
You can invest today for a future full of savings.

You Can Afford GeoThermal

Stacked Heat PumpsGood news, GeoThermal is cost-competitive!
It is most important to consider how you can benefit from investing in GeoThermal.

Long Lift Expectany

With proper maintenance Symbiont’s GeoThermal customers should expect to get 15-20 years of service during the life cycle of the heater.

Why? Symbionts don’t have coils that are exposed to the air (which may have corrosive salt/chlorine in it) like Air Source Heat Pumps and they don’t have burners/heat exchangers that are exposed to the air. Symbiont units are double-protected, not only does the whole system have a painted aluminum shell but the compressor has an additional protective case around it and the coils have a thick composite case around it. 20 years in a normal environment far exceeds the life expectancy of other heating methods and their components.

Low Operation Cost

The operational cost can be as much as 90% lower than propane heaters. This provides our clients with savings throughout the life of their GeoThermal Symbiont unit. Another note on operation – GeoThermal is quiet. The second protective case on the unit acts as a sound deadening case.

Low Life Cycle Cost

Total life cycle costs are less due to the long life expectancy, years of serviceability and low operational costs. Even though GeoThermal may have higher initial costs, they have the lowest long-term overall lifecycle costs while achieving a reliable, comfortable pool temperature.

It’s Green

GeoThermal systems can often be built using all natural resources, like the fresh water lake behind your property.
“Disposal” water can be dropped in a lake, pond, river or creek- among other water sources abundant in Florida.

Consistent Energy-Efficiency

GeoThermal provides clean and safe energy using little land. GeoThermal also conserves fossil fuels and contributes to diversity in energy sources. GeoThermal benefits the local economy by avoiding the need to import components.
