Declare Your Personal Energy Independence

You can’t control the weather, but you can control your energy bills for life. The ground absorbs nearly half of the solar energy our planet receives. As a result, the Earth’s surface retains a consistent, moderate temperature on an annual basis. However, air temperature fluctuations occur naturally with the changing of seasons, effectively reducing the efficiency of traditional (air source) heating and cooling systems during the colder months.

Geothermal heating and cooling systems channel the ground’s stable temperature using an innovative piping system, commonly referred to as a “loop.” Water circulates in the loop to exchange heat between your home, the ground source heat pump, and the earth, generating heating, cooling, and hot water at remarkably high efficiencies. In fact, ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling systems are 400-600% efficient and can cut your heating, cooling, and hot water costs by up to 80%.

Heating it Up

Naturally, heat is in highest demand during the coldest months of the year. ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling systems absorb subterranean heat through the water that circulates in its underground loop. This heat is transferred to the ground source heat pump where it’s concentrated and then sent as warm, comfortable air throughout your home.

Heat is a household necessity during periods of low temperatures and a traditional air source heat pump system is inefficient, expending large amounts of energy to adequately extract the required amount of heat from the cold air needed to properly warm your home. In contrast, a geothermal system consumes less energy as it effortlessly absorbs heat from the abundant supply stored below ground, making geothermal heating significantly more energy efficient and practical.

Gas furnaces utilize natural gas to generate heat for your home and are only 98% efficient, while geothermal systems use significantly less energy tapping from the earth’s underground heat source, achieving 400-600% efficiencies.

Keeping it Cool

During the summer, ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling systems cool your living space by absorbing your home’s heat and transferring it to the underground loop where it is then absorbed by the cooler earth. The geothermal heat pump harnesses the cool water returning from the earth to create cool, dehumidified air for your home.

When you need cooling the most, the outside air is hottest. A standard air source heat pump must labor vigorously to force the heat from your home into the already heat saturated air. In contrast, a geothermal heat pump consumes less energy as it easily rejects heat into the cool earth, making geothermal cooling significantly more energy efficient.

The Bottom Line

Geothermal is safe, proven technology with more than a million installations nationwide. While propane and oil prices are unpredictable, geothermal offers guaranteed savings for years and years to come. Geothermal heating and cooling systems do typically cost more upfront than a conventional HVAC system, but they are much more energy and cost efficient in the long run – and the savings begin immediately.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) geothermal systems are, “the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean, and cost-effective space conditioning systems available today.” Because geothermal technology is lowest in CO2 emissions, it provides a solution to global warming by primarily using the natural energy of the earth.
