Celco Heating and Air Conditioning offers installation and repair services for geothermal systems in Stamford, CT. Before making any decisions for your home, you must speak with a heating expert. They can offer insight and guidance throughout the selection and installation process.

Geothermal heating isn’t for everyone. Some properties are not appropriate for geothermal installation because of space limitations. However, if you do qualify or if you are simply curious, it is important to be aware of the many advantages that geothermal heating has to offer.

What is Geothermal Heating? How Does it Work?

Geothermal heating relies on the temperatures in the ground in order to facilitate the heating and cooling process. Geothermal systems use an underground pipe loop filled with water or a water and antifreeze mixture in order to siphon thermal energy.

There are many advantages to installing a new geothermal heating system in your home. Whether you are looking to go green or save money on your bills, you will benefit. Take a look at this list of benefits we have provided:

They’re Efficient

Geothermal heating systems are very efficient. In fact, these systems use 25% to 50% less electricity than conventional heating or cooling systems. Geothermal heat pumps can also reduce energy consumption by up to 44% compared with air-source models and up to 72% compared with electric resistance heating systems. The system uses a small amount of energy to transfer the large amount of energy that is stored underground without burning fuel. Since underground temperatures consistently remain at 45-55 degrees Fahrenheit, the ground is a consistent source to obtain heat energy from, thus increasing efficiency.

They’re Environmentally Friendly

Go Green with a new geothermal heating system! Geothermal heating systems are amongst the most energy-efficient and environmentally clean systems on the market. Because they can move heat from what place to another without burning any fuel, they produce significantly low emissions. Also, they are 100% electric, which means that they emit no carbon monoxide or other greenhouse gases.

They’re Reliable

Geothermal loop systems can last for over 50 years! That is almost 35-40 years longer than other heating systems. This is mostly due to the fact their underground components are not exposed to seasonal elements like snow and rain. They also have relatively few moving parts, meaning that there are fewer parts subjected to wear and tear.

Why not take advantage of the endless and free energy stored on Earth? Speak with one of our friendly technicians at Celco Heating and Air Conditioning.
