Did you know that heating and cooling accounts for more than half the energy in a typical home? More energy efficient than traditional HVAC systems, geothermal heating systems help lighten the load on the electric grid, especially during summer months. In addition, they can help reduce carbon emissions thanks to their high efficiency.

Even though the weather around us changes throughout the year, the ground underneath maintains a constant temperature from month to month. The reason for this is that the earth actually soaks up energy from the sun’s rays and stores it—pretty amazing!
A ground-source heat-pump system makes the most of this energy from the sun and of the constant ground temperature, heating and cooling your home with it. When you sign on for geothermal heating, we’ll install an underground system of pipes, to access the ground’s constant temperatures.
When it’s hot out, the excess heat from your home is transferred to the ground. As the water makes its way through the pipe system, which is underground, at a much lower temperature, it returns to the home cooler than it started. This process is reversed in the winter, when the earth is warmer than the air in your home.
Offering superior comfort, a geothermal heating system reduces your monthly heating and cooling bills while simultaneously increasing your home’s value. This approach eliminates fossil-fuel consumption, which is always a plus! From a safety standpoint, you can rest easy, as geothermal heating and cooling poses no risk of carbon monoxide leaks.
In addition to the savings you’ll enjoy from having such an efficient system, New York State offers rebates for the installation of ground-source heat-pump systems. Learn more about rebates and financing options you might qualify for!
