Ready for a New AC? Then Definitely Consider a Heat Pump!

Monday, May 7th, 2018

red-therrmometerWashington is not necessarily known for intensely hot summer weather, but it doesn’t have to regular hit the triple digits to mean that it is uncomfortably hot outside. Even here in the PNW, a great air conditioning system is a must for homeowners looking to live comfortably throughout the entire year. The good news is that the pros on our staff are here to outfit your home with a quality air conditioning system, either as a brand new installation in a new property or as a replacement for your older system.

Before you rush into buying a new central air conditioner, however, we recommend that you take a few moments to really familiarize yourself with the options out there. You may just find that there is a system that suits your needs and personal user preferences even better than the tried and true central AC. While these are obviously great systems, using a heat pump in Snohomish, WA is also something that you should seriously consider. Heat pumps have a couple of added benefits that you’d be remiss to overlook.

Is Geothermal for King County Residents?

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

Geothermal heating is a great alternative to other types of home heating systems in King County. It is safe and efficient, costs very little to operate and makes use of a great renewable resource right below our feet. But is it right for you? Well, geothermal heating may be the right choice for many people, but there are many things to take into account before you can determine whether or not it is the best choice for your home.

The first important thing to understand when you are trying to decide whether or not to go with geothermal heating is how one of these systems actually works. A geothermal system heats your home by extracting heat from the ground and then transferring that heat into your indoor air. This happens when liquid, usually water or antifreeze, passes through a loop of pipes installed several feet below the ground.

The liquid absorbs heat from the ground, which in the winter is always warmer than the air, and carries is back up to an air handler inside your home where that heat is allowed to disperse into the air. Once the air is heated, the air handler blows the air through a system of ducts throughout your house, providing a constant stream of heated air to all areas of your home. The liquid, on the other hand, simply cycles back through the ground loop to pick up more heat and repeat the same cycle over again.

Because a geothermal heating system does not actually generate heat, it requires very little energy to operate. This means that it is both very cheap for you to run and environmentally friendly. But since installing a geothermal heating system involves putting pipes in underground, it can be pretty expensive initially. However, as long as the amount you save every month on your heating costs is enough to offset the high initial price of installation, it is worth it to put down the money up front.

Another alternative, of course, is a more traditional air source heat pump. These are much cheaper to install and nearly as cheap to run. However, air source heat pumps are not as efficient when the air temperature gets below freezing as a geothermal system can be. If you live in an area with harsh winters, the geothermal heat pump is a better option than an air source unit.  If you have any questions about this great alternative contact G & S Cooling and Heating anytime.
