You’ve heard of geothermal HVAC systems but haven’t looked into the technology. Geothermal is a set of heat exchange loops buried in the ground in your yard, where the temperature is consistent year-round. By exchanging heat with the ground instead of the outdoor air, a geothermal HVAC provides you with energy efficiency and significant savings. If you plan to be in your Stinnett, Texas, home for the foreseeable future, you should consider going geothermal.

Energy Efficiency

We’ve found that you can save up to 50 percent on heating and cooling costs when you install a geothermal system. These systems use a very minimal amount of electricity. Because the traditional HVAC system is a big draw on your electricity and most traditional systems require a lot of power, you’ll love the efficiency you get with geothermal.

Lower Emissions

These systems are easy on the environment. The ground loop heat exchange process creates an environmentally friendly system you can feel good about running. You don’t use fuel like natural gas, which means your HVAC system isn’t using up natural resources to run. The system itself has a very small carbon footprint because it releases no emissions.

Savings Over Time

Lower energy bills are just one way you save over time with a geothermal HVAC system. Geothermal systems don’t need very much maintenance. The loops last in the ground for decades, and the rest of your system just needs a checkup every year. These significant savings help offset the installation costs and make sense when you’ll be living in your current house for the next decade.

Installing a geothermal system is a bit complicated, but we’ll guide you through the whole thing. First, have a Winkelman Heating and Air Conditioning geothermal technician out to assess your property and recommend the best spot for the geothermal loops. Once the loops are buried and you’re enjoying your new HVAC system, you’ll be surprised how short our maintenance appointments truly are. Give us a call at 806-553-4698.
