If it is decreased energy costs, enhanced comfort, safety and reliability that you want out of your heating system, a geothermal unit could be the right fit for you.
Geothermal units can be easily installed in a wide variety of installations — new or old homes, large or small. Although most systems are simply single units in a forced-air application, they can also be used for other types of installations.
- Geothermal units can provide hot water for radiant floor applications, by circulating warm water through the tubing encased in the floor. Floors covered in tile, wood, linoleum or stone are kept toasty warm, even on the coldest days. Since the entire floor acts as a giant radiator, you’ll experience a room that is comfortably conditioned with head to toe consistent comfort.
- Homes with large demands for domestic or potable water heating will benefit from the exceptional efficiency of a geothermal system. This unit provides dedicated hot water for heating and domestic use and both heating and cooling furnished through a conventional duct system to condition the air inside the home, the complete system provides the ultimate in savings and comfort with safe, reliable, quiet performance.
- A geothermal unit can keep your sidewalks or driveway free of ice and snow during the cold winter months. Eliminate the hazards of walking on ice-covered sidewalks, and forget the back-breaking effort of shoveling snow.
Geothermal systems operate more efficiently than ordinary heating and air-conditioning systems because they deliver four-units of energy for every one-unit of electrical energy used. By combining stored earth energy with safe electric power, homeowners may realize savings of up to 70 percent on heating, cooling and hot water costs when they install a geothermal unit. In addition, for a limited time, geothermal installations qualify for a 30% federal tax credit (no maximum) and a 35% N.C. State tax credit.
