At Parker’s, we install and service geothermal systems by Bosch / Florida Heat Pump. These heat pump systems are the most energy and cost efficient systems on the market and therefore the greenest technology and the smartest investment for Residential and Commercial heating and cooling applications.
As the cost of energy increases, geothermal installations are becoming the system of choice. The earth has a tremendous capacity for storing thermal energy which can be utilized to heat and cool a home or building. Although the initial cost of a geothermal application tends to be higher, considering the life cycle savings in energy and reduced maintenance costs, geothermal seems to be the smartest decision.
What is Geothermal Energy?
Geothermal energy is the heat that the earth’s interior provides from nature. While temperatures above ground change a lot from day to day and season to season, temperatures 10 feet below the Earth’s surface hold nearly constant between 50° and 60°F. For most areas, this means that soil temperatures are usually warmer than the air in winter and cooler than the air in summer. Geothermal heat pumps use the Earth’s constant temperatures to heat and cool buildings. They transfer heat from the ground (or water) into buildings in winter and reverse the process in the summer.
Benefits of Geothermal
Geothermal technology is the most environmentally friendly way to cool and heat your home because it has no carbon dioxide emissions or any other negative effects on the environment. The savings of energy also helps reduce our US dependency on foreign oil.
Lower Operating Cost
How would you like to save up to 70% on your energy bills? Geothermal technology does this for your heating, cooling and hot water! The even better news is that the simple payback could be as short as 5 to 7 years and the savings start from the very beginning of installation. For a new home installation with the cost of the system included in your mortgage payment, you could have a positive cash flow from day one.
