If you’re in the market for a new HVAC system, you may be picturing the typical large metal systems often found behind homes. However, there is another HVAC option that is more efficient, less costly, and more environmentally friendly. There are several benefits of having a Geothermal HVAC system installed in your Greensboro, NC, home.
Everyone looks for a level of consistency when they walk in the door of their home. You and your family have undoubtedly gotten to the point where a certain temperature feels good no matter what the weather is like outside. Geothermal HVAC systems help increase that consistency.
In the Piedmont region of North Carolina, temperatures can vary by as much as 60 degrees between hot summers and cold winters. Since geothermal HVAC units rely so heavily on the consistent temperatures on the earth’s inner layers, your home’s temperatures will mirror that consistency.
Lessened Environmental Impact
Having a geothermal HVAC system installed produces the lowest CO2 footprint of any HVAC system currently on the market, according to the EPA. Since traditional systems rely on refrigerant and other chemicals to produce the air that keeps your home comfortable, those chemicals emit into the air. Geothermal HVAC systems simply transfer fluid that is heated or cooled naturally, meaning it’s a far more environmentally friendly option.
Lower Utility Bills
Traditional HVAC units work by creating cooled or heated air, depending on the season, and forcing that air throughout your home. Geothermal HVAC systems transfer water or some sort of refrigerant through pipes underground before carrying it back into your home.
Since moving air requires significantly less energy than creating air, geothermal HVAC units use less electricity than traditional systems. That decreased use of energy translates to increased savings on your monthly utility bills.
