Geothermal Energy Solutions
the most efficient way to heat and cool your home
Cost, comfort and security - three words that are important when you talk about heating your home. Homeowners are enjoying a high level of comfort and significantly reducing their energy use by heating and cooling their homes with geothermal heat pumps in any weather condition.
While standard fossil fuel furnaces reach between 80% and 90% efficiencies; a geothermal heat pump can reach 450% efficiencies. Geothermal heat pumps are powered by electricity and not subject to volatile natural gas and propane prices.
The bottom line: Geothermal technology starts saving you money the first day it is installed.
By using the constant temperature below the earth's surface, your geothermal system doesn't need to work as hard to heat and cool your home. It runs more efficiently, so it saves you money - up to 80% savings over your existing heating and cooling system!
Calculating your Initial Costs
The initial cost of a geothermal heating and cooling system varies with each project. Many variables are unique to each site, in addition to the type of system (forced air, radiant or combination) and method of loop field installation that all have an effect on the initial installation costs. While a geothermal system will initially have a higher cost compared to a conventional system, there are Federal incentives and countless advantages.
During a site consultation, an A.C.E.S representative can explain to you that the incremental cost from installing a geothermal system compared to a conventional system, has a payback in as little as a few years. Also, those who are building a new home, adding the incremental cost to a 30-year mortgage, results in saving money in the first month!
