When my spouse and I built our lake condo from the ground up, the two of us chose a geothermal heat pump to handle the year round temperature issues. The team we hired and I had researched all bizarre types of heating as well as cooling units. They included forced air gas furnaces, central air conditioner as well as electric heat pumps. Although the geothermal heat pump was far more expensive than these other options, the two of us and the team were convinced that it was worth every penny put into it. Roy as well as I liked that geothermal temperature control due to it being considered the most environmentally responsible option by the Environmental Protection Agency. This type of system does not rely on fossil fuels to generate heat, as well as there is no combustion process. There is no worry about over carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, formaldehyde or any harmful gases. There are no sizzling surfaces or fumes, as well as the heat pump doesn’t overly dry the air in heating mode. The people I was with and I don’t need a humidifier during the winter season or a dehumidifier in the summer. The geothermal heat pump takes advantage of stable underground hot as well as cold temperatures, also it uses this free energy source to traninterest heat to the home. The process is so convenient for energy efficient that the heat pump entirely creates 4 units of heat for every one unit it draws. From our calculations, the two of us think we will have reclaimed the initial investment within a short few years. The people I was with and I are able to maintain the perfect temperature, all year long, no matter the outside weather for about a dollar a day. Plus, the heat pump is super quiet, clean, as well as reliable. We expect the heat pump to last at least twenty years, as well as the underground loop system should provide over fifty years of dependable operation.
