The HVAC experts at DeHart Air Conditioning specialize in geothermal installation, helping you take advantage of all the benefits.
What is Geothermal Energy?
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.
Benefits of Heating & Cooling Your Home with Renewable Energy
Although installing a geothermal heat pump HVAC 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.
Take Advantage of the 30% Federal Tax Credit for Geothermal
Although the installation of a geothermal heat pump requires an initial investment, you can quickly see a return. The government has recently reinstated the federal tax credit for geothermal. At this time, if you have a geothermal heat pump installed in your home you’ll receive 30% of the cost of the entire system back on your tax refund.
Utility Rebates for Geothermal Heat Pump Installation
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 always finance your geothermal installation and quickly pay off the financing with all of your energy bill savings.
