If you are interested in reducing your monthly energy bills while protecting the environment, you should consider a geothermal system for heating and cooling your home or business. These unique systems use the earth’s natural heat to regulate the temperature inside your home, which eliminates the use of natural resources like gas or oil for your HVAC needs. Furthermore, it reduces your energy usage and helps you save money.
In very basic terms, your geothermal system is a central heating and cooling system that consists of a ground source heat pump. During the winter months, your heat pump draws cold air out of your home and transfers the natural heat from the earth to your system’s refrigerant, then pumps the warmed air back into your home. In the summer the same process happens in reverse: your heat pump draws hot air out of your home and replaces it with cooled air.
Naturally, the installation of a geothermal system will cost more than conventional air conditioning system installations due to the need for burying the in-ground units, either horizontally or vertically. In the long term, this investment will be well worth it, though, due to significant energy savings and longer system life. As your local Geothermal expert and Bryant™ Factory Authorized Dealer, Winkelman Heating and Air Conditioning installs a wide variety of geo-based units and systems made by Bryant™, including:
