Geo Thermal Exchange Organization (GEO).
Unlike traditional heating and air conditioning systems that use the air to heat and cool your home, geothermal heating and cooling systems circulate water through a system of sealed underground piping loops that carry heat to and from the earth to the system. In the heating mode, the geothermal heat pump system uses the heat from the water to warm air that circulates throughout the house. In the cooling mode, the geothermal heat pump system reverses the process, taking heat out of the home’s air and circulating the resulting cool, dehumidified air instead.
Because a geothermal heating and cooling system has less work to do to reach the desired temperature setting throughout the year, it is highly efficient and lowers heating, cooling and hot water costs. A fossil fuel furnace may be 80% to 90% percent efficient; a geothermal heat pump is amazingly 400-600% efficient.
Another advantage to a geothermal heating and cooling system installed in a new home is that from day one you will be cash flow positive, as the cost of the system each month is lower than the savings you realize on your monthly energy cost!
GSHPs are environmentally friendly:
Through December 31, 2016 homeowners who install ENERGY STAR qualified geothermal heat pumps are eligible for a 30% federal tax credit. Learn More.
Today’s second generation Solar Hot Water Heaters offer dramatically improved efficiency, very good cost-effectiveness, and the price is much lower, allowing for cheaper, more widely available installations, and the return on today’s Solar Hot Water Heaters, and the return on the initial investment has been significantly improved over the last 20 plus years.
Solar Hot Water Systems can be used to provide home heating – offsetting the amount heating oil, propane, natural gas or wood that you use. These Include:
