Heating and cooling one’s home efficiently and reliably is a great goal to pursue. In this day and age, you can do both with the very same equipment. If you ask us, that is a pretty good deal. Geothermal technology has been with us for a while, but it has really grown in popularity among residential property owners in recent times. Even so, many homeowners are hesitant to embrace this technology, wondering if geothermal heating and cooling in Everett, WA is really the right fit for them. In many cases, it is. Read the following information, and contact the geothermal pros here at G & S Heating Cooling & Electric with any questions that you may have.
Why Geothermal Heat Pump Technology Works
Living in Washington, or the PNW in general, means that your climate is pretty well-suited to the use of heat pump technology. Our relatively mild winters allow for the successful transfer of existing heat into the home, after the refrigerant in the heat pump is further compressed to optimize the thermal energy therein. By using a geothermal heating and cooling system, though, the heating function of the heat pump is even more reliable. Whereas air-source heat pumps, of course, cull heat from the air outside, geothermal systems pull that thermal energy from the ground. A geothermal loop is buried on one’s property, through which an antifreeze solution circulates, absorbing heat. Because the temperature at the depth in which the loop is buried is so constant, geothermal systems are very reliable on even the coldest nights of the year. Plus, they are powerful air conditioning systems in their own right as well.
Hire a Geothermal Professional
If you are convinced that geothermal heating and cooling is right for your home, you must schedule your geothermal installation, and any subsequent maintenance or repair services, with trained professionals. There is a lot to consider, such as the amount of land on your property, and even the properties of the soil constituting that land. Only a skilled technician can help you to determine with certainty if geothermal is the right option for you, not to mention complete the installation and servicing of the system with the requisite expertise.
