During the winter months, keeping the home warm is one of the biggest concerns for homeowners. Although there are several different ways in which the home can be heated up, not many of them are affordable or efficient. One of the newest and the most eco friendly and cost effective ways of heating the home is through geothermal heating. Basically, this system heats the house through the energy or the power that is generated from the source of heat located within the earth. This energy is known as geothermal energy.
It is considered to be the most eco friendly energy options today when compared to the fossil fuels. This system is also very cost effective in the long run. With fuel sources depleting every day and energy conservation, environment protection emphasis, a large number of homeowners are turning towards this unique heating solution.
One of the main reasons why so many homeowners today are turning towards geothermal heating is because of energy conservation. Heat systems at home that work on geothermal energy can save up to 50% of electricity when compared to alternative heating systems. These heating systems use a single electrical energy unit to extract around 3 units of heat from the earth. Geothermal heating systems also allow humidity control. Therefore these can be very helpful when used in homes located in humid areas. These units are excellent for conserving energy and therefore reducing your energy bills.
Geothermal heating systems ensure energy conservation and also reduce the emissions greatly when compared to heating systems running on electricity or air source. Considering the scenario today with fuel resources depleting at a fast rate, geothermal heating is the best eco friendly energy source available to us today. A large number of responsible homeowners are therefore switching over to this heating method.
Reliable, Durable and Flexible
Geothermal heating systems offer design flexibility. They can be considered to be an HVAC system whether you want to modify your existing system or want to install anew one. Implementing these systems at home require far lesser equipment when compared to the conventional systems used by us. This provides us more living space. Most of the equipment that is used for the system is sheltered and therefore they tend to be more durable as well as more reliable as a heating system. In most cases the heating pumps have a warranty of at least 25 years and the equipment life exceeds 20 years. All the components used in the system are available easily so it is quite convenient to tune and maintain the system, increasing the life of the system. Unlike most of the heating systems used at homes, Geothermal heating systems do not include condensing units inside or outside the house. Therefore, there is no noise pollution created by the system.
