Geothermal Energy Savings
Geothermal heating and cooling systems are the safest, cleanest, most reliable comfort systems you can invest in. According to the EPA, geothermal heating and cooling systems are the most eco-friendly alternatives to traditional HVAC systems. Installing a geothermal HVAC system pays off quickly in energy savings. Geothermal heat pumps can be over twice as efficient as air-source heat pumps during cold weather.
How it works
Even though the temperature in the air changes frequently, the temperature underground remains relatively constant. Geothermal heat pumps use that to their advantage. They can pump underground heat into buildings, heating your home with a fraction of the energy needed by an air-based system. During the summer, the heat pumps can reverse that process and pump the heat from your home back into the ground, cooling your building.
Another advantage of geothermal heat pumps is that they can generate hot water while they heat or cool your home. In the summer, your home can have hot water for almost no cost. In the winter, geothermal HVAC systems can slash hot water energy bills by up to 50%.
Installing your geothermal system
Geothermal heat pumps can be installed inside or underground. Investing in a renewable like a geothermal system from A. Borrelli has many benefits. It can cut your heating and air conditioning bills up to 70%*, and help save the Earth at the same time. The initial installation cost for a geothermal system may seem expensive. However, over time, a geothermal system can produce significant savings.
You can also receive a 30% federal tax credit, with no cap, for any geothermal installation. This tax credit significantly reduces the installation cost. In addition to federal tax credits, many local governments and utility companies are offering rebates and tax incentives that will only add to your savings.
By harnessing the power of nature to provide a building’s heating and cooling needs, investing in a Geothermal Heat Pump system from A.Borrelli Mechanical will give you the benefits of the most comfortable, reliable and cost efficient heating, cooling, and water heating system available on the market today.
*According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, geothermal systems save homeowners 30-70 percent in heating costs, and 20-50 percent in cooling costs, compared to conventional systems. (Source)
