If it’s time to replace the HVAC system in your Midland, NC, home, you might be considering a newer version of your current system. However, it might be worthwhile to consider a geothermal HVAC system instead. Below are five benefits of geothermal HVAC systems.
1. Geothermal HVAC’s Affordable Operation
A geothermal HVAC system is highly affordable to operate. It doesn’t create heat by burning fuel but simply transfers heat from the ground.
The International Ground Source Heat Pump Association reports that a geothermal heat pump offers “efficiencies 50 to 70% higher than other heating systems and cooling efficiencies 20 to 40% higher than available air conditioners.” That results in lower energy bills.
A geothermal HVAC system is one of the most environmentally friendly heating and cooling systems available. It doesn’t produce greenhouse gases or carbon monoxide, and it has a low electricity demand. If you want to avoid increasing your carbon footprint, a geothermal HVAC system is the way to go.
3. Hot Water at the Ready
With traditional hot water heaters, you have to wait for more hot water if the tank runs out. Even a tankless water heater has nothing on a on of these HVAC systems: A geothermal HVAC system is capable of producing all the hot water you want and at a higher efficiency.
4. Quieter Operation
Since there aren’t any outdoor condensing units that go along with this system, you don’t have to deal with the excess noise of a traditional system. This means you don’t have to worry about noise inside your home.
Geothermal HVAC systems are clean and safe to operate, as there’s no combustion involved. You won’t need to fear carbon monoxide poisoning impacting the indoor air quality of your home. This type of HVAC system uses renewable energy, making it safer than other HVAC systems.
