If you want a heating and cooling system with the highest possible energy efficiency rating, geothermal energy is your best bet.
Geothermal HVAC systems offer high energy efficiency levels. What’s more, they also have a long lifespan and limited maintenance requirements. As a bonus, these systems are great for the environment. Here’s what you need to know about installing a geothermal heating and cooling system in your home:
An excellent geothermal HVAC contractor will always do an energy audit before installing a geothermal system. An energy audit will help the contractor choose the right size for the system. A system that is too small won’t efficiently heat or cool the home. What’s more, a system that is too large or too small can cause problems later on.
Geothermal energy comes from the earth. This means you’ll need an underground loop field to obtain cool or warm air from the ground. The loop field tends to be the most expensive part of the system. It’s also the hardest to install. Your HVAC contractor will need to drill deep underground to put in your new system.
Do you have ductwork already installed for your current HVAC system? If so, you don’t need to change it. In fact, your HVAC technician won’t even have to modify the ducts in most instances. However, it can be a good idea to have an expert inspection before installing a geothermal HVAC system. Duct leaks can make the system less efficient, resulting in high energy bills.
