You’ve undoubtedly heard about solar power — or energy from the sun that is harvested by solar panels and then converted through an inverter into usable electricity. But did you know that there’s a renewable energy source right under your feet?
Geothermal energy is heat from the Earth that occurs naturally underground. It’s the same energy that creates hot springs, and believe it or not, it can be used in conjunction with a heat pump to both heat and cool your home.
Since the temperature underground is constant — somewhere between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit — it is ideal for providing your home with air conditioning and heating as needed. A geothermal heat pump system consists of three main parts: the ground heat exchanger, the actual heat pump unit itself, and ductwork which deliver cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter.
Although installing a geothermal home heating system for your home consists of an upfront investment, it is one that is quickly returned with all of the benefits that geothermal energy provides.
ENERGY BILL SAVINGS
Air conditioning and heating with renewable energy means that you’re not relying on fuels such as oil or natural gas. All your system will require is some electricity and the free geothermal energy located underneath your property. Each month you’ll only pay a small fee for your home’s heating and cooling needs compared to what you were previously paying. In fact, a geothermal HVAC system can reduce your energy costs by up to 80% each year!
REDUCED ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
Since your home will require much less energy, you’ll not only save on your bills every month, but also reduce your home’s impact on the environment. Air pollution from carbon emissions will be reduced, helping you preserve the planet.
Your geothermal heat pump installation can be even more affordable thanks to local utility rebates that are helping to make geothermal a popular HVAC option here in the greater Duncan and Chickasha region. In addition, you can finance your geothermal installation.
If you’re concerned about high air conditioning and heating costs, as well as your comfort and impact on the environment, a geothermal heat pump may be right for your home. The HVAC experts at DeHart Air Conditioning specialize in geothermal installation, helping you take advantage of all the benefits.
DeHart can work with architects, engineers, and contractors to help develop quality, well-performing geothermal HVAC systems. Our consulting services include:
Is your home or business building in the right location for geothermal heat pump installation? DeHart weighs unique factors like overburden, bedrock, and the presence of joints or fractures into our recommendations for your potential geothermal project that will help you maximize your savings.
THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY TESTING
TC testing, or conductivity testing, is a useful way to evaluate the geothermal potential of the property your building is on. Boring a test well is particularly important for larger buildings, and our testing will ensure less risk to you and a better engineered final system.
SIZING AND DESIGN
The size and design of a geothermal HVAC system are largely dependent not only on the ground where the loop will be installed (and how large the loop needs to be) but the heat load or heat demand that your system will have to produce to keep you comfortable. DeHart uses rigorous data collecting and cutting-edge software to ensure your system is well designed.
THIRD PARTY INSPECTION AND TESTING
Need an outside opinion on your current geothermal heat pump system, or one that’s about to be installed? DeHart can review everything from schematics to existing systems themselves and give you honest feedback so you can make an informed decision about your heating and cooling.
