Geothermal is the most energy efficient technology available today for heating and cooling. The Green Air family has been installing and servicing these systems for over a decade.
Like conventional heat pumps, geothermal systems work on a principle of heat exchange- transferring heat from one place to another. Geo units circulate an antifreeze solution in a closed loop underground. The Earth’s stored solar energy keeps underground temperatures constant at about 60 degrees. This sixty degree “harvest” means the system has far less work to do to bring a room to the desired temperature.
The initial investment on a geo installation is greater than on a conventional system, but you can expect the the significantly lower operating expenses over the lifetime of the system to more than offset upfront costs. Switching to geo can save up to 70% each year on heating and cooling costs. Through the end of 2016, consumers who install a new geothermal heat pump system can also claim the Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit, which equals 30% of the total system cost.
The 30% federal tax credit expires at the end of 2016- if you’re considering geothermal, don’t wait! Call today!
