Geothermal Heating & Service in Findlay, Ohio
For 25 years, United Home Comfort technicians have been the Findlay experts in heating and cooling systems. In recent years, we have carefully watched as installations of geothermal heat pump systems have grown in popularity. We studied up on geothermal systems, trained our technicians and have completed installation and repair for many such systems in the Greater Findlay Area.
In our time working on these systems, we’ve learned about many of their benefits and a few of their drawbacks. Read below to get a better understanding for yourself.
How Do Heat Pumps Work, Anyway?
Essentially, heat pumps pull heat from one place to another. In the winter, this means transferring heat from the ground into buildings. During summer months, heat is extracted from buildings and then transferred to the ground. All this takes a little electricity, but the heat output is up to five times greater than the electricity expenditure, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. A system of coils, valves, and pumps do the work of moving the air. To switch from heating to cooling, you’re the thermostat.
Geothermal Heat Provides Constant Ambient Temperatures: If you’ve lived in Flag City, USA, for very long, you know how cold outdoor temperatures can be in winter. Often, they get as low as -10 degrees Fahrenheit. When July rolls around, however, temperatures can easily exceed 90 degrees. When you have a geothermal home heating system, however, you can have comfortable and reliable indoor temperatures year round.
Low Maintenance and Operation Costs: Installation of a complete geothermal heat system in your home or business may cost more than a traditional furnace or air conditioning unit, but operation costs are low enough that you’ll make up the difference in a hurry, especially when you add in a 30 percent tax credit. Geothermal systems use far less electricity than standard electrical heaters and they use no natural gas. Also, because no parts of the system are exposed to the elements, very little maintenance is required beyond regular cleaning of the coil.
Sustainability in Heating and Cooling: You might call geothermal heat pumps sustainable because they last a long time – and you would be right. In most cases, they keep working well for generations. But they are also sustainable when it comes to the environment. They emit no greenhouse gasses, including carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, and in almost all cases where they use water, that water can later be returned to its original aquifer.
