Better Comfort From the Ground Up
A geothermal system is the most efficient way to heat and cool your home. Why? Because unlike heaters and air conditioners that use energy to create warm or cool air, geothermal systems use existing heat beneath the earth’s surface. Therefore, less energy is required to keep your home nice and comfortable.
At Simpson Salute, we have mastered the ins and outs of geothermal technology to repair, maintain and install these systems with ease. As a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, we carry and install the most reliable, long-lasting geothermal systems available. We know that if you’re investing in a geothermal system, your ultimate goal is to minimize your long-term energy bills. That’s why we partner with the trusted brand Carrier to exceed customers’ expectations across the board.
How Does Geothermal Work?
When temperatures are below freezing, it’s tough to believe that the surface beneath the ground is warmer. But this is exactly the case! If you were to go 10 feet underground, you would find the temperature is a consistent 55 degrees all year round. This is true in the middle of summer or the dead of winter. Geothermal systems harness this consistent temperature to heat and cool a home more efficiently.
A geothermal heating and cooling system consists of two major components: the heat pump and the ground loops. As water circulates through the ground loops, the temperature of the water changes. Once the water reaches the heat pump, the pump disperses the warm or cool air throughout the home. During the winter, heat is pulled from the ground and during the summer, it’s dispersed into the ground.
What Are the Benefits of Geothermal Heating & Cooling?
If you are looking to maximize your long-term energy savings, a geothermal system is your best bet. Customers who transition to geothermal tell us after the fact that they wish they made the change much sooner! Geothermal systems offer a number of advantages, including:
- Maximum energy efficiency. Since geothermal systems leverage existing heat beneath the earth’s surface, they are able to use significantly less energy than traditional heaters and air conditioners. If you wish to minimize your energy bills for the long term, there is simply no better option than a geothermal system. While these systems have a higher upfront cost, the energy savings will either match or exceed the upfront cost in as little as three to five years.
- Reduced carbon footprint. Geothermal systems do not emit carbon monoxide or greenhouse gasses, making them one of the most eco-friendly ways to heat and cool your home.
- Longer lifespan. While traditional heaters and air conditioners last for an average of 10 to 15 years, geothermal systems can far exceed this number. A well-maintained system can last decades and the ground loop portion of the system often comes with a 50-year warranty.
- Increased comfort. Geothermal systems have the ability to heat and cool a home with precision. This means no hot and cold spots throughout the home and no more uncomfortable blasts of hot and cold air from the furnace and air conditioner.
- Minimal maintenance. Since every component of the system is located either inside the home or below ground, geothermal systems aren’t exposed to rain, snow or ice the way air conditioners are. As long as you have a professional maintain the system each year, you can expect the convenience of a low-maintenance system.
- Quieter operation. The indoor heat pump is designed to work quietly, allowing you to heat and cool your home peacefully all year long.
- Additional hot water. Since geothermal systems work by transferring water, why not put the hot water to use? We can install a connection that will transfer hot water from the geothermal system to your home’s water heater. This change alone can provide most of the hot water your family needs.
