How Geothermal Systems Measure Up in the HVAC Industry

Monday, July 4th, 2016 by Tom Vatter

We understand that when it comes to choosing an air conditioning system—or a heater—for your home, that you want to make sure you have a system that will best serve your living space and your specific needs. There have been numerous advances in recent decades that make today’s HVAC systems far more superior than those of the past.

However, different models do have different benefits, and what’s right for one home might not be right for yours. One fantastic option that we do urge you to consider though is the geothermal heating and cooling system. Installing this type of system is more accessible than ever before, but that’s not the only reason you should consider a geothermal cooling system. (more…)

How Geothermal Systems Operate in the Winter

Monday, November 30th, 2015 by Tom Vatter

In the classic novel Journey to the Center of the Earth, author Jules Verne sent his three heroes down more than a hundred miles below the Earth’s crust—on foot!—to make fantastic underground discoveries. One of these discoveries was that the temperature did not increase substantially as they went deeper, even though much of the evidence of the day (1860s) indicated a hot core of the planet. (more…)

Are There Other Choices for Central Heating Aside from a Furnace?

Monday, October 19th, 2015 by Tom Vatter

If you are considering having a residential heating system installed this fall, either for a new home or as a replacement for an aging heater, then you have more choices available to you than ever before. It’s easy to get trapped into thinking that a furnace, the most popular type of heater in the country, is the only viable option, but it’s simply not true. Furnaces are very effective at what they do, but if you’re looking for a change or you no longer want to rely on gas power, there are some excellent central heating system alternatives. We’ll look at a few of them. (more…)

Geothermal Is a Great Idea for Heating Your Home: Here’s Why

Monday, October 12th, 2015 by Tom Vatter

If You Plan to Replace Your AC This Fall, Why Not Go Geothermal?

Monday, September 14th, 2015 by Tom Vatter

This is a follow-up on last week’s post, where we discussed ways to tell if you air conditioning system was due to retire and have a replacement put in. If you believe that the time has come to install a new air conditioner, you have many options aside from the conventional split system AC. You could have a heat pump installed, or try a ductless mini split system.

Or… what about a geothermal system? It might not have occurred to you, but a geothermal heat pump is a viable alternative for cooling in many homes. Let’s take a closer look it. (more…)

Look to the Ground Beneath Your Feet for Heating and Cooling

Monday, July 27th, 2015 by Tom Vatter

No homeowner would turn down an efficient and reliable HVAC system. Considering just how much we rely on our air conditioners in particular, it’s important that they not only be there during the most brutal days of summer, but also that they operate as efficiently as possible. After all, aren’t your cooling bills high enough? Geothermal technology continues to provide homeowners with a long-term, high-efficiency solution for year-round comfort, though it is not nearly as well known as central air units, heat pumps or even ductless mini splits. But with increasing public attention surrounding the environmental side effects of excessive energy consumption, it might be time to see what the ground on your property can do for you. (more…)

Some Advantages of Geothermal Cooling and Heating

Monday, May 25th, 2015 by Tom Vatter

Among your options for cooling down your home this summer and many summers to come is a geothermal heat pump, also known as a ground-source heat pump. These home comfort systems use similar indoor components to a standard heat pump (an ­air-source heat pump), with an evaporator/condensing coil and air handlers to distribute the conditioned air. But instead of an outdoor cabinet with a coil and exhaust fan that uses the air as a medium for heat exchange, a geothermal heat pump has underground loops that use the heat of the earth as its heat exchange medium.
