Are there other heating products you should know about besides a furnace?
When it comes to heating products, most people know about traditional equipment, including furnaces. But what about heat pumps? There are many benefits, especially when you’re talking about geothermal heat pumps. Here’s the scoop.
What Is a Geothermal Heat Pump?
A heat pump works by transferring heat from one space to another. Most heat pumps extract heat from the air, but a geothermal heat pump uses ground source heat to warm your home. The earth is an excellent source of heat, and this system takes advantage of it.
What Are the Benefits of a Geothermal Heat Pump?
There are three main benefits to a geothermal heat pump:
- Operating cost is low. A geothermal heat pump is one of the most efficient ways to heat your home. You can lower your heating bills by up to 70% by switching to this system from a traditional furnace or fuel burning system.
- They’re quiet when they run. A geothermal pump has no outdoor unit, so you won’t hear the noise of a traditional system when you’re enjoying the quiet of your outdoor space.
- They are environmentally friendly. Unlike a gas or electric heating system, a heat pump doesn’t need to burn fuel to generate heat for your home, and so it doesn’t emit any greenhouse gasses. You can reduce your need for electricity while reducing your carbon footprint, all while keeping your home comfortable in the winter.
If you’re looking for a safe, efficient, and cost-effective way to heat your home, look no further than a geothermal heat pump.
