St. Clair County’s Geothermal Heating & Cooling Contractor
Reduce your homes energy costs and environmental impact by installing a geothermal heating and cooling system in your home.
How do Geothermal Heating & Cooling systems work?
Geothermal heating and cooling systems use the temperature of the earth below your home to either heat or cool its interior. The earths temperature is consistent at around 50 degrees Fahrenheit when you dig down past the frost barrier, usually around 10 feet, and it remains that temperature all year round. Our systems can take advantage of that temperature to pump heat into your home or to cool it.
We will install a system that uses tubes that will have liquid pumped through them. When the liquid is pumped underground in the summer it will cool off and be returned to your home. The system will use this liquid to cool the air and circulate it through your home. Once the liquid is used it will become warm again and returned to the underground cooling system.
In the winter the system simply works in reverse and warms the air inside your home. The heat pump will compress the liquid to a much higher temperature, which is then used to heat your homes interior. The system then returns it to the ground to be reset at a constant temperature.
This technique still uses some electricity to pump and compress the liquid. However, the cost to operate this system is much less than traditional furnaces and A/C units. By only having one system for both heating and cooling, your maintenance costs will be dramatically less as well. With this completely natural and renewable source of heat your home will be able to reduce the amount of energy you need to purchase from a power company. This will save you as much as 80% on your energy bills as well as reduce your homes carbon footprint and environmental impact.
