Geothermal Heating Systems
When you hear geothermal you’ll often think of heat that comes from the earth. This is exactly correct, as geothermal systems are nothing more than pumps that tap into hot and cool air from underground. Often this will be through water, and the savings to you over time are immense.
How Does Azle Geothermal Work?
So what is geothermal exactly? Sounds cool, but how does it work? First, you won’t have water pumping through the walls of your house like many believe. Instead water is pumped through wells that are drilled into the ground when your geothermal cooling system is installed.
When your home is hot these wells in the ground pull that heat down into the ground, kind of like a giant pump. When your walls are cool it pumps that heat back up. And for that reason it’s very easy to make your home stay at a comfortable and consistent temperature year-round.
Types of Geothermal Heating for Azle and Fort Worth
There are 2 main types of geothermal heating and cooling systems you can choose from:
- Closed-loop: This circulates the water that heats and cools your house through a loop piping system. They’re made from polyethylene and can be installed either vertically or horizontally.
- Open-loop: This system is very similar to closed-loop except it uses an existing source of water near your home. This could be a well, a small pond, or even a lake.
Benefits of Using Azle Geothermal Heating & Cooling
Here are some reasons you should choose Azle Air Conditioning, Heating & Electrical for your geothermal heating system:
- Savings: Geothermal is really the right choice if you want to save money long-term. You get about 4x the heat savings when you use geothermal heating and new advances also mean that cooling savings are on the rise as well.
- Long-lasting: Geothermal heating systems can typically last 20 years or longer. The reason for this is that the heating systems are completely indoors and not exposed to harsh conditions that prematurely-age other heating and cooling systems.
- Earth’s Energy: The best way to get started with geothermal is by having a close source of water, such as a pond or earth loops. These systems have upfront costs, but those will be recouped after 4 to 5 years, meaning for the next 15 years you’ll be saving on energy.
- Low-upkeep: When you choose to use geothermal energy you’ll have very little upkeep or other operating costs. Geothermal heating systems in Azle have fewer problems and maintenance issues year-round than most other indoor heating and cooling systems.
