GEOTHERMAL HEAT PUMPS
Below ground is a secure, renewable source of energy. Why not reap the rewards of an asset you already own through a geothermal heat pump system?
The EPA states, “Geothermal heating systems have the lowest life-cycle cost of all heating and cooling systems available”.
How They Work:
Geothermal heat pump systems, also known as ground source heat pumps, use heat from largest solar collector in the world, the Earth itself!
Piping is run into the ground, heat is absorbed from the earth, and sent into the home.
Why Choose a Geothermal Heat Pump System?:
- They last longer than traditional heat pumps: Geothermal Heat Pumps tie into existing duct work like a traditional heat pump, but last longer as they have no outside exposure.
- Highly Efficient, No Carbon Emissions:
Winter - A geothermal system extracts heat from the earth. The process is highly efficient, self-contained and produces no carbon emissions.
Summer - heat is extracted from the house and deposited in the ground, with even greater efficiency, using the same equipment.
- Savings: Significant monthly returns are realized upon installation of a geothermal system, particularly for larger homes and homes that heat with oil, propane, and natural gas. The chart below shows the average reallocation of heating and cooling loads after conversion to a geothermal system.
Geothermal systems provide clients with up to 75% savings over traditional heating means, and add up to 40% savings on hot water costs.
The system consists of a geothermal heat pump unit inside your home which would be roughly the size of your existing furnace and a series of pipes buried underground on your property. Contact E.T. Mechanical today for a free estimate!
Don’t take our word for it.... This is what our customers say!
“It’s been a great winter; I’ve been burning wood for 30 years, what a break it is to finally not have to haul. It’s so economical! I’m spending less on power, than what I would have on wood. It even draws enough heat at -24C, without turning on the auxiliary heat. The Previous winter, we were away 3 weeks and our power bill was $475.00, this year we were away for 6 weeks our bill was $180.00... for 6 weeks! You shouldn’t be able to build a house today without a heat pump or a geothermal system.”
