5 Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

5 Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling


We’ve talked a bit here on the blog about geothermal heating, what it is, what it does, how it works; that sort of thing.  Our goal was to give you an overview of the technology and a basic understanding of what it can do for your home or business as well as the environment.  Big picture:  it’s an incredible step forward in green energy that ever more individuals are tapping into.

Here’s the rub:  as with any new advancement in tech, there are naysayers that spread myths and cloud the masses’ vision.  We want to help clear away the fog a bit and give you some facts often misunderstood about geothermal heating and cooling.

Fact 1:  Geothermal is quiet

People often assume this technology is loud and obtrusive, but the reality is quite the opposite.  These systems are quiet and have no exterior equipment to ruffle your noise-sensitive neighbor’s feathers.

Fact 2:  Geothermal heating and cooling systems last

In the past, as with all things new and progressive, there were systems that failed due to improperly sized loops and differing learning curve issues.  We’re beyond that today, and these systems can now last for generations.

Fact 3:  Refrigerant is not pumping through your loops in the ground

Most geothermal heating and cooling systems use water, not refrigerant, in their underground loops.  No need to worry about refrigerant leaking into your soil.

Fact 4:  Geothermal heats and cools

Geothermal is not just for heating purposes!  Because of the way the earth conserves and maintains temperature, your home or office building can stay comfortable year round with geothermal.  This is an all in one comfort maintaining system.

Fact 5:  You can afford a geothermal system

Again, new technology has it’s pitfalls, and one of them is the initial expense.  However, not only has geothermal heating and cooling been around long enough to have established itself outside the realm of “newness,”  it has garnered attention from local and federal energy conservationists and can be credited to the point that you’re paying the same as you would for conventional.

This, all while doing your part to save the planet.  Feel like a superhero yet?

You should!  Contact Earth Energy Systems today for all of your heating and cooling needs and talk to us about geothermal heating and cooling.  We are your resident air conditioning and heating experts, no matter which route you choose to keep your space comfortable.

Advantages of Ductless Air Conditioning


When it comes to cooling your home or business, many factors come into play.  Cost, the size of your space, and the feasibility of installing a specific system are just a few.  Other issues you might consider are the functionality and flexibility of the unit and what challenges maintenance may present over the course of time.  With a ductless air conditioning and heating unit, all of these considerations become simple and straightforward.

Why Choose Ductless?

Why might you choose to install a ductless air conditioning unit (also referred to as mini-split systems, split systems, multi-split systems, or split-ductless systems)?  Advantages abound with this type of air conditioning and heating system, with simplicity being an attractive headliner.

Flexibility and Efficiency

Traditional heating and cooling systems force air through ducts; as the name implies, a ductless systems delivers air directly into specific areas, giving you greater flexibility and control in temperature regulation.  These systems can be installed a variety of situations and applied to solve the inefficiency problems of window air units, space heaters, and baseboard heaters.

Money Saved

Speaking of efficiency, nothing on the market beats ductless air conditioners when it comes to effectively cooling your home or office.  Forced air systems are chronically inefficient since they have to push air through imperfect materials to regulate your air temperature.  As previously mentioned, the direct delivery of air with a ductless system allows for near perfect efficiency and gives you control over which rooms to keep cool depending upon occupancy.

Easier Breathing

This efficiency has an obvious benefit:  more money in your pocket.  You will save cash with a ductless air conditioner in the long run and leave a smaller carbon footprint while you’re at it.  These systems are also simple and non-invasive to install and, last but not least, they improve your air quality due to their multi-stage air filtration system.  Ducted systems must be professionally cleaned in order to achieve this standard, and even then, they aren’t actively purifying your air with an air filtration system.

The advantages of ductless air conditioning are abundantly clear:  contact Earth Energy Systems today for all of your air conditioning and heating needs and to learn more about how you can save with ductless air conditioning!
