Looking To Go Green For Earth Day?
Here Are The Top 5 Reasons To Consider Switching To Clean And Efficient Geothermal Energy Courtesy Of WaterFurnace
FORT WAYNE, Ind., April 21, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — With Earth Day approaching, finding ways to save energy is a goal for many, especially homeowners. But did you know one of the most efficient and eco-friendly ways to make a difference is right beneath your feet? You can harvest renewable energy from the Earth to heat and cool your home by installing a geothermal heat pump.
“A geothermal heat pump is the greenest, most efficient, and most cost-effective way to heat and cool your house,” said Tim Hammond, Senior Director of Engineering for WaterFurnace, a leader in geothermal systems and technology. “That’s because it uses the free renewable solar energy stored in your backyard rather than burning fossil fuels. In fact, installing a single geothermal unit is the environmental equivalent of planting 750 trees,” he added.
Geothermal has been recognized as the most environmentally-safe energy available and can be easily integrated into existing systems or installed in new home construction.
Here are five reasons homeowners should consider making the switch:
It’s Good for the Environment
As most Americans know, fossil fuels are responsible for a large portion of greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. Switching to clean and efficient geothermal energy is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and reduce dependence on oil and gas.
It Saves Money in the Long Run
Tired of going into sticker shock over rising energy expenses? While a geothermal system will require an upfront cost for installation, homeowners can expect to significantly reduce their monthly heating and cooling bills. Government incentives and rebates can add to the savings so in the long term most will see a positive return on their investment.
It Comfortably Heats and Cools Your Home
Unlike a traditional heating system, geothermal will not only keep your family warm in the winter, it also provides hyper-efficient cooling for the summer and in many cases can also provide hot water. Geothermal heat pumps deliver even temperatures throughout the year, with no extreme hot or cold spots. They also dehumidify air in the summer months while doing the opposite in the winter, further enhancing the comfort level.
It’s Reliable and Long-Lasting
By using the infinite energy source in the earth, a geothermal heat pump operates efficiently and effectively all year-round —rain or shine, day or night, windy or not. Geothermal units aren’t subjected to the punishing effects of outdoor weather or fuel combustion, so they require less maintenance and last longer than nearly any other heating and cooling system.
It’s Healthy and Safe
Geothermal units have strong filtration systems and circulate air frequently, eliminating more dust and pollen. And because geothermal systems don’t use fossil fuels, there is no danger from a gas leak, storage of hazardous materials or carbon monoxide poisoning.
