12/20/2010

Residential geothermal heating and cooling systems are prudent investments that any Charlottesville citizen should see about installing. The vast number of perks, the many ways it conserve the use of energy, and how you can save green combine into the perfect blend of being dependable, year-round heating and cooling, and a smaller carbon-footprint. Seeking additional information about the installation of a cost-saving geothermal heat pump, or ground source heat pump as they are called by engineers? Then here are more details Charlottesville, VA homeowners can expect from their residential geothermal system.

Residential Geothermal Benefits

  • Size – Since a geothermal heating and cooling heat pump is roughly the same size as a conventional forced-air furnace, retrofitting an existing fossil fuel unit is, most times, an easy job. Your installer will determine your retrofitting options.
  • Noise – What noise? There is no outdoor fan like you'd find in an air conditioner or air-source heat pump. Our geothermal systems use quiet variable speed blower motors that run only at the speed needed. They deliver just the right amount of air rather than roaring to life, so you'll scarcely even know it's there.
  • No open flame – Have the peace of mind that fuel is being burned, and that means no pilot light woes.
  • "Free" hot water – As your residential geothermal heat pump removes excess heat from your Charlottesville residence, it can be used to warm the water for your bathing and washing needs.

Residential Geothermal Savings

  • Energy efficiency – Traditional heating systems max out at 98% efficiency, but a residential geothermal system can deliver efficiencies of up to 500%! This is possible because for each unit of electrical energy used to heat your Charlottesville home; 5 units of heat are extracted from the earth; resulting in savings of up to 70%.
  • Positive Cash Flow – Typically, the operating expenses for your new residential geothermal system will be surpassed by the savings you will see on your energy bill.
  • Federal Tax Credit – Get 30% of the cost of installation of your energy-saving geothermal heat pump system.
  • Low Maintenance Cost – Thanks to fewer moving parts, the absence of combustion, and an installation indoors away from the abuse of outdoor conditions and contaminates, geothermal units require scarcely any maintenance.
