What is Geothermal Energy?
Unlike traditional heating and air conditioning solutions, geothermal systems for homes don’t burn fossil fuels and don’t actually create any heating or cooling energy. Instead, they harness, extract, and redistribute the sun’s energy already waiting underground.
Nearly half of the sun’s energy is absorbed into the ground as heat when it reaches the Earth’s surface. While Central Indiana weather may be known for wild temperature swings throughout the year, the Earth’s temperature roughly 4 to 6 feet below the surface remains relatively consistent between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Geothermal heating systems tap into that energy with a buried “Earth loop” network of pipes that absorb heat stored underground and carry it indoors for distribution as needed. The process reverses during the cooling season, with a geothermal heat pump easily extracting unwanted heat from your house and depositing it back into the cooler Earth.
After surveying your home and property, Precision Comfort Systems can determine and design the best styles of geothermal loop design for your situation.
Why Choose Geothermal?
Save Money on Energy Costs
While installing a geothermal system in an existing home will carry higher initial costs than traditional comfort solutions, geothermal heating’s cost per month is much lower than conventional furnaces and air conditioners.
ENERGY STAR-certified geothermal equipment and expenditures qualify homeowners for a 30% Residential Clean Energy Tax Credit through 2032. In our experience, a family in a 2,200-square-foot home can save approximately more than $1,000 per year on utility bills through the use of geothermal energy.
According to the EPA, a geothermal heating system can reduce energy consumption and emissions by up to 72% compared to conventional air conditioning equipment. The DOE’s renewable energy program says they use 25 to 50 percent less electricity.
Overall, geothermal units are more than five times more efficient at heating and more than twice as efficient at cooling than even the most energy-efficient traditional systems.
Geothermal heat pumps contain fewer moving parts than traditional systems, leading to longer lifespans with fewer breakdowns. Geothermal heat pumps can last up to 25, while underground loops can last up to 50 years or longer.
