Geothermal literally translates to mean heat from the earth. Instead of using the outside air as a heat source, like conventional systems, Geothermal systems utilize the constant temperature of the earth. Essentially, heat is moved out of the earth and into the home in the winter, and out of the home and into the earth in the summer. This allows for high efficiencies even when daily temperatures are extreme. In fact, according to the EPA, geothermal heat pumps can reduce energy consumption and emissions up to 72% compared to electric resistance heating with standard air-conditioning equipment.
Worried about space? An additional benefit is that GHP systems require less space than traditional HVAC units and can be installed in new and retrofit situations. These innovative systems also provides for zone space conditioning, allowing different parts of the home to be heated or cooled to different temperatures.
Beyond the cost-effectiveness and efficiency, GHP systems are also environmentally friendly. In fact, according to the Geothermal Heat Pump Consortium, installing a geoexchange system into a typical home provides the same amount of greenhouse gas reduction as planting an acre of trees.
The EPA has declared geothermal heat pump systems the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean and cost-effective space conditioning systems available. It if for this exact reason that Edwards Heating & Cooling is proud to offer Geothermal systems to their customers.
Not only does M&M Heating & Cooling offer innovative whole-home solutions, they are also dedicated to providing services that ensure their products keep customers comfortable for years to come.
