Geothermal Cooling is an Excellent Choice for Millions of Families
Geothermal cooling has the potential to provide affordable, consistent, and quiet air conditioning for millions of American homes. However, many people don't understand enough about how geothermal cooling works, and others don't even know that it exists. Here is what every homeowner should know about geothermal cooling in order to make an educated decision for their property.
How Geothermal Works for Air Conditioning
Just a few feet beneath your house, the ground stays a fairly consistent temperature. During the winter, that soil is warmer than the air outside and during the summer, it stays cooler than the hot summer air. A geothermal cooling system removes heat from the air in your home and moves it down into the earth via a system of liquid-filled tubes, called an earth loop. The extracted heat could also be used to heat water stored in your water heater.
One above-ground heat pump moves the air from your home down into the earth loop. This unit is extremely quiet when running, and it uses a fraction of the electricity required for conventional furnaces and air conditioners. In fact, your cooling savings could add up to 70% off your average summer electric bills. For quiet, efficient, and environmentally-friendly home air conditioning, you really can't beat a geothermal cooling system.
