If you’re like most folks, you use an air conditioner to cool your home in summer, then a furnace of some kind to heat through winter. Did you know a geothermal heat pump can do both jobs more efficiently than either air conditioners or air-source heat pumps? Did you know geothermal heat pumps like the GeoCool Geothermal WTW048-A Water-to-Water Heat pump will not only save you money, but it will also reduce your home’s carbon footprint without harming the ozone layer with dangerous emissions?
It will. Unlike traditional air conditioners and air-source heat pumps, a geothermal heat pump takes advantage of the stable environment buried only a few feet beneath the Earth’s surface. Unlike the atmosphere, subterranean temperatures rarely fluctuate even in the face of seasonal highs and lows.
The stable underground environment allows a geothermal heat pump to keep its operating efficiency high no matter what the weather’s doing outside your home. This allows high efficiency heating and high efficiency cooling, something a regular heat pump just can’t do.
You’re probably more interested in what that means for you.
Higher seasonal efficiency translates directly into dollars saved. According to the US Department of Energy, most geothermal heat pump owners reduce their utility spending enough in the first 5-10 years to pay off the unit installation costs.
Some make the money back in as little as 3 years.
If that sounds good to you, then a geothermal heat pump like the GeoCool WTW048-A Water-to-Water Heat Pump is exactly what you need for heating and cooling applications in your home.
