DETROIT GEOTHERMAL HEATING & COOLING SYSTEMS
Looking for a more efficient and less expensive way to heat and cool your
home? If so, a geothermal system might be a good choice for you. Though
geothermal systems have been around since the 1940s, recent spikes in
energy prices have generated new interest in them. These days, more and
more homeowners are replacing their traditional HVAC systems with a geothermal unit.
But what exactly is a geothermal unit? Simply put, a geothermal heat pump
transports underground air into the home and heats or cools it down to
the desired temperature. Unlike outdoor ambient air, underground air remains
at a fairly steady temperature all year long even during blizzards or
heat waves. Because geothermal heat pumps don’t have to work as
hard to heat or cool the underground air (unlike traditional heating or
cooling systems that use outdoor ambient air), they are much more efficient.
Most geothermal systems are pump-based, meaning they pump the stale air
out of your home while also pumping the appropriate temperature of air
into it. Some geothermal units have additional components, such as variable
speed fans, that allow for greater control and efficiency. There are also
plenty of models that can supply your home with hot water, which means
you could replace your old traditional water heater as well.
Replacing your traditional HVAC system with a geothermal heating and cooling
system does require a large investment up-front, but it also comes with
lots of long term benefits. Compared to traditional heating and cooling
systems, geothermal systems are more energy efficient, last longer, require
less maintenance, and keep heating and cooling bills down. In fact, many
geothermal units end up paying for themselves in as little as five to
And compared to traditional
cooling systems that are usually housed in an attic, garage, or outdoors, geothermal systems
are basically “out of sight, out of mind.” Because they are
underground, they don’t use up valuable living or storage space
and they make less noise.
