What Makes A Geothermal Heating System Energy Efficient?
Geothermal Heating and Cooling in Normal
Geothermal heating and cooling is an extremely energy-efficient option, so it saves you money compared to users of traditional heating and cooling systems. Geothermal systems work by harvesting the energy that lies under the Earth’s surface, and then this energy is converted in a way that heats or cools your home or office. In traditional heating and cooling systems, fossil fuels like gas and oil are used to create the energy that produces heat or cold. Fossil fuels are non-renewable energy sources, so once they’re used, they cannot be quickly replaced. Thermal energy, on the other hand, is a renewable energy source, so the Earth can replace it quickly as it is harvested and used.
Because geothermal systems rely on geothermal energy, they use much less traditional electricity than other systems. Therefore, homeowners that switch to geothermal systems for heating and cooling will notice that their electrical bills will reduce significantly after switching.
Geothermal systems are also:
- Safer and quieter
- Easier on the environment
- Less likely to need repairs
- Doesn’t require fuel to operate
Because geothermal systems release less carbon dioxide in the air than other heating and cooling systems, they are both safer on humans, animals and the environment. They also do not require the use of an outdoor air compressor, making air conditioning processes much quieter, and because there are fewer parts in a geothermal system compared to other systems, there is a reduced risk of big breakdowns.
