6 Myths About Geothermal Heating And Cooling

We all love taking a breath of fresh air, and look to keep our homes fresh and cool, adjusting heating and cooling as required to suit our needs. Imagine living in a house with heating and air conditioning out of sight, requiring minimal know-how and maintenance with fresh air circulated throughout. Geothermal services in heating, ventilation and air conditioning makes this possible. It makes use of the temperature of the earth, building a harmonious internal environment in your home, where the temperature is just right and the air naturally fresh. Here are popular misconceptions about such services and the real truth behind them.

  • Since geothermal services use electricity, they aren’t a green source of energy
    Geothermal services do use electricity but in very economical, virtually non harmful amounts to move hot and cold air effectively throughout your home. They use as less as one unit of electricity per five units of hot and cool circulation done from the earth to our homes.
  • Geothermal heating and air conditioning can only be done in large areas
    This is untrue as the piping and earth loops required can also be installed vertically. Essentially, the ground space necessary is often as little as a few square feet of real estate. An aquifer may also be used for heat exchange to facilitate the process in HVAC.
  • Geothermal HVAC is only good for heating
    For both heating and cooling purposes, geothermal HVAC units are highly effective both in terms of cost and quality. An additional back up heat source is chosen by some customers for extra-cold days only to save some ground space in installation.
  • Geothermal HVAC systems work poorly with multiple loads
    This is a fact that has been disproved many times. An effective installation means it can easily be used to heat your pool, your home and even water for bathing and other purposes.
  • Geothermal systems are noisy
    This is yet another common misconception, barring the installation phase, these pumps are soundless and provide heating and air conditioning very seamlessly for your home and other needs.
  • Such systems consume a large amount of water
    This misconception is one that is probably borne out of situations where an added aquifer is used for back up heat exchange. Often the aquifer is chosen in order to reduce the amount of piping and ground work for heat exchange. Moreover, the water back, if installed, is only a medium for heat exchange and is returned to the aquifer without affecting the quality.
