If you are looking for a great way to keep your Mentor, OH home comfortable while reducing the amount of energy that you use to do so, contact Apple Heating and Cooling today. We’d be happy to discuss the installation of a geothermal heat pump system on your property.
A geothermal heating and cooling system does not consume an energy source in order to heat and cool your home. Rather, it uses a heat pump to transfer ambient heat into or out of your home. This heat transfer process requires the consumption of just a small amount of energy. The less energy you use to keep your home comfortable, the lower your heating and cooling costs will be.
Unlike traditional heat pumps, geothermal heating and cooling systems draw heat from beneath the ground or under water on your property. This makes them more versatile and, in some environments, more dependable than other heat pump options, such as air-source heat pumps. This is due to the fact that the temperature beneath the ground or underwater does not fluctuate as much as that in the air.
A geothermal heat pump system installation is a fairly involved process, and your property must meet a number of different criteria to accommodate this type of system. A geothermal loop system is required, and this loop system must be buried underground or submerged beneath water. A fluid is circulated throughout this system to absorb the heat for use in your home. The amount of space available on your property, as well as geological factors, will determine whether or not a geothermal loop system is the right option for your home.
