Geothermal

Geothermal Heat Pump Savings St. Louis Geothermal heat pumps use energy absorbed from the sun to heat and cool your home as an affordable energy efficient alternative to your traditional air conditioner and furnace. Geothermal heat pumps also cost much less to operate compared to your standard heating and cooling methods. You will see that you will have around 30-35% savings in energy costs when using geothermal heating and cooling systems. Installing a Geothermal Heat Pump for heating and cooling is just as affordable as installing a typical HVAC system, thanks to tax credits and utility rebates. Geothermal Heat Pump Energy Efficiency St. Louis Let’s put this into perspective: A standard HVAC fossil fuel furnace is about 78-90% energy efficient. A geothermal heat pump is 400% energy efficient.  Another way to reduce energy and save money is to use a smart programmable thermostat. Why heat or cool your home, when you’re...
Geothermal heat pumps double as a free hot water source in both the summer and winter months in St. Louis, MO. Yet, as geothermal energy gains popularity in Missouri and southern Illinois, homeowners should make note of the following facts pertaining to this free source of hot water. In order to make use of the wasted heat generated by a geothermal system’s compressor, a desuperheater captures that energy to treat and re-purpose the water. Geothermal systems are excellent sources of free hot water, in humid cities such as Collinsville, Edwardsville, St. Louis City, Chesterfield and Ladue. During the summer, when the geothermal heat pump produces cool air, it can process most of a home’s hot water. In other words, a household can depend on most of its hot water supply during muggy times of the year. In contrast, the geothermal pump does not provide the same volume of hot water over...
On a Friday night in Jefferson County, MO, the choice of what to have for dinner and which new release to rent will probably be trivial by Sunday breakfast. Your choices in geothermal loop fields are far more impactful, on the scale of 50+ years. The underground piping of geothermal systems is often guaranteed free from leaks for 50 years and expected to last twice this time. You don’t need to be anxious about the right choice in your geothermal install for a few reasons. First, the durability and ease of maintenance is in fact a positive attribute. You’ll reap the efficiency, energy savings, and comfort benefits of your geothermal heating and cooling system for years to come. Second, your application will dictate which of these options is best. The size of your property, landscaping details, actual Jefferson County, MO HVAC requirements, and installation costs normally make one a clear choice....
When you’re keeping your Chesterfield home cool for the summer, you still want a hot shower. A geothermal heat pump and a standard hot water heater are a perfect match to reap summertime energy savings. Here’s a look at the process that makes them so compatible. The Need to Know Facts of Geothermal Hot Water HeatingThe geothermal heat pump still does its traditional job. Supplemented by electricity, the pump removes heat from inside your Chesterfield home. The system accepts hot return air and distributes cold supply air to the ductwork. Instead of simply transferring heat to the earth through the closed underground water solution loop, some of the waste heat moves to your hot water storage tank. Like the earth in the traditional geothermal model, your hot water heater becomes a new heat sink. When no additional energy is needed to heat up the contents of your storage tank, your hot...
“Geo” means earth and “thermal” means heat. So “geothermal” signifies earth heat. But geothermal technology can also be used for cooling, and it’s not difficult to translate into your Kirkwood home. Let’s take a look at geothermal cooling as an alternative to traditional air conditioning. How Geothermal Cooling Works Watch a video here about What is Geothermal? Even on a barefoot Kirkwood summer night, the earth’s surface may not feel cool. But the temperature beginning at four to six feet below the surface remains constant year round. The earth at this depth is relatively colder than the surface in the Kirkwood summers. Of course, you’re not going to move underground to stay cool. Instead, geothermal cooling allows you to harness the earth as a free heat sink and condition the air in your home. The traditional way to cool your home is producing cold air from the evaporation and condensing cycle...
