What is Geothermal Energy?Geothermal heat pumps, also known as ground-source heat pumps, are an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. Geothermal systems move heat rather than make heat. During the winter, solar warmth stored in the ground is moved into the home. During the cooling season, solar warmth collected in the home is moved to the cool earth. Hardware consists only of a heat pump connected to a series of small diameter pipes buried underground. An anti-freeze solution circulating through the pipes carries heat between the ground and the heat pump.
Geothermal offers several advantages:
- New systems are eligible for a 30% federal tax credit
- Substantially reduced energy costs by 25% to 75%
- High efficiency (200%-400%)
- Simple design, maintenance and operation
- Heating and cooling are provided in one system
- System are quieter with no loud air conditioner outside your home
- Protects your budget from unstable natural gas and propane costs
