A geothermal heat pump has an indoor air handler that connects to a series of pipes filled with water or refrigerant called a loop. Temperatures underground stay constant almost all year in Spring Lake, North Carolina, making geothermal systems more efficient than conventional heaters and air conditioners. A geothermal heat pump can increase your comfort and cost savings with radiant heating, quiet operation and better indoor air quality.
With a hydronic or radiant heating system, pipes filled with hot water can make the floors in your bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, or living room warm and comfortable. Radiant heating is more expensive to install than using a heat pump, but it can lower your utility bills. Hydronic heating also works as your water heater, saving energy and space. It’s perfect for heating a pool or a hot tub without worrying about energy costs.
Since geothermal HVAC systems don’t have outdoor units, they’re quieter than conventional heaters and air conditioners. Most geothermal heat pumps can run at different speeds, so you won’t hear your system turning on or shutting off. Variable-speed units also help save money.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Geothermal HVAC systems don’t bring outside air indoors regularly like conventional heaters and air conditioners. As a result, pollutants like pollen, dust and dirt can’t impact your indoor air quality as easily.
Also, there’s no carbon monoxide or other harmful contaminants, because there’s no combustion. Since the indoor air handler is almost always working, your humidity stays low and you prevent mold growth.
