13 Aug The Benefits of Owning a Geothermal System
WaterFurnace geothermal systems are the “hottest thing going” today when it comes to cooling and heating your home, particularly for those who are environmentally conscious and want to enjoy a comfortable home year-round while conserving energy, and saving money. If you aren’t familiar with the benefits of geothermal systems, Haley Mechanical wants to enlighten you about a few of the benefits.
Increased comfort. Many homeowners in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and surrounding areas experience cold spots in winter months, and hot spots in their homes in summer months. With a WaterFurnace geothermal system, comfortable air is evenly distributed throughout your home, eliminating hot or cold spots. In winter months, you enjoy warm comfort without hot blasts you may experience with a traditional gas furnace. In summer months, geothermal systems deliver air that is not only cool and refreshing, but dehumidified as well.
Lower energy costs. Geothermal systems work by combining energy that is stored below the ground with safe electric power, ultimately delivering five units of energy to cool and heat your home for every one unit of electrical energy. This combination helps Michigan homeowners save an astounding amount of money – up to 70% on costs for hot water, cooling, and heating.
Dependable. Traditional air conditioners and heat pumps have components installed outside, subjecting these components to rain, ice, extreme temperatures, and other elements that create wear and tear over time. Geothermal units are installed inside, so they are protected from these elements and require less maintenance.
Quiet. If you would enjoy quiet operation without the buzz and roar typically experienced with traditional air conditioners, you will love the WaterFurnace geothermal system as it is designed to run quietly.
Eco-friendly. We have already mentioned geothermal systems are environmentally friendly, but even more, they emit no greenhouse gasses, carbon monoxide or dioxide, or other chemicals or poisons that contribute to air pollution. When it comes to heating and cooling your home, a geothermal system is highly recommended by the EPA and Department of Energy. There is no “greener” way to enjoy home comfort and reduced energy costs!
