How it workS
No matter what climate you live in, the temperature throughout the year varies. For some climates that means blazing summers that cool to frigid winters. What many people don't realize is that the temperature below ground (regardless of climate or season) stays fairly consistent all year. While air temperatures can vary greatly from day to night or winter to summer, the temperature just a few feet below the earth's surface stays an average 55°-70°F year-round.
Geothermal systems are rated number one in energy efficiency because they can deliver more than five units of energy for every one unit of electrical energy used. Compare that to even the best ordinary system that delivers less than one unit of energy for every unit it consumes. That translates into an efficiency rating exceeding 530%, compared to the most efficient gas furnace which rates only 98%.
Hot Water Assist
As a Geothermal unit runs, it can capture heat that would normally go to waste and divert it to your water heater tank (usually an optional component called a desuperheater). Your unit can generate up to 50% of your hot water--at almost no cost. For larger volumes of hot water, we also offer dedicated hydronic units.
