If you dread opening your energy bills every month, you’re not alone. Many homeowners find that during especially warm or cool months, their energy bills skyrocket well beyond an acceptable level. Besides, high energy bills indicate a heavy reliance on our natural resources, but there are many alternatives for renewable energy to both lower bills and help the planet.
One of the most common types of renewable energy systems today is the geothermal unit. Geothermal heating and cooling systems use heat pump technology to absorb heat from the ground and bring it into your home or to release heat back into the earth. This means a large loop system must be buried in the ground first, as the earth’s temperature remains consistent when you dig down deep enough.
To install a new geothermal system, you must have enough space on your property and a working set of ducts. As long as these are present, you should trust the professional technicians at G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. to install a new geothermal unit for your home in Mercer Island. We go over the geothermal cost benefits here.
Ways that Geothermal Systems Save Money
A geothermal system reduces your bills in a couple of ways. While these units do still rely on electricity to run, the amount of electricity needed is significantly smaller. There are fewer moving parts, which also means they are less likely to need repairs. Lower bills and smaller repairs are important features in a new heating and AC system.
Besides, geothermal units last a very long time, and you may not have to replace the unit for the entire time during which you own it. You also won’t have to worry about purchasing a separate AC and heating system since geothermal does both. Furthermore, there may be government incentives in place for installing a new geothermal unit. If this is the case, you’ll save on installation, repairs, maintenance, and monthly spending.
