Replacing Your Heater Before Winter Arrives? Consider Geothermal!

It may be easy to forget during the summer season, when temperatures and humidity soar, but the winter weather in our area can be quite cold and uncomfortable. With fall approaching in the very near future, you are wise to get your heating replacement out of the way as soon as possible. If you are seriously considering replacing your heater this year, then you are also wise to consider your heating options carefully.

We encourage homeowners throughout the area to give geothermal heating some attention before deciding upon their new heating system. Geothermal systems have much to offer, as you’ll learn a bit more about below. If you decider that geothermal is a good fit for your needs, be sure to take advantage of the 55% combined tax credit on new geothermal system installations!

Why Is Geothermal Heating Advisable?

The greatest benefit of using geothermal heating in Chapin, SC, is the fact that it is so incredibly efficient to do so. You see, rather than burning a fuel in order to generate heat, a geothermal heating system utilizes the refrigerant process in order to use existing heat to warm your home. Even when the temperature of the air outside is cold, the temperature a few feet below ground is more or less constant. By circulating a heat transfer fluid through a buried loop system, and exchanging that heat with refrigerant in a heat pump component, a geothermal system can literally use heat from within the ground in order to warm your living space.

Not only that, but geothermal heating systems are actually cooling systems, as well! The refrigerant cycle is reversible, which means that you can use the same system to remove heat from the air in your home, and to sink that heat into the ground. This is actually more efficient than forcing heat into already hot air, as well.
