Not only do geothermal HVAC systems conserve energy and offer savings on energy costs — there are many other benefits and advantages as well. Plus, when you install a geothermal system, you could qualify for extraordinary incentives such as tax credits and rebates!
What Are Geothermal HVAC Systems?
Geothermal heating and cooling systems use the steady temperature beneath the earth’s surface to regulate the air in a building. A series of underground pipes, called a loop system, circulate water or an antifreeze solution through the heating and cooling unit located inside.
During warm months, the system pulls heat from the building and transfers it into the ground; in colder months, it extracts warmth from below ground and uses it to heat the building. Not only does this process save energy and reduce reliance on fossil fuels, but it also provides a consistent source of heating and cooling.
Components of a Geothermal System in Garner, Raleigh & Beyond
A geothermal system utilizes the constant temperature of the earth to heat and cool buildings. The main components include a ground loop, which circulates a liquid solution through underground pipes; a heat pump, which transfers heat between the building and the ground loop; and an air delivery system, which distributes heated or cooled air throughout the building. The heating and cooling provided by a geothermal system is extremely energy efficient, as it does not rely on burning fossil fuels or outside energy sources.
In addition, a geothermal system requires less maintenance than traditional heating and air conditioning units because there are no outdoor components that can become damaged by weather or wear out over time. Overall, geothermal HVAC systems provide a cost-effective and environmentally friendly option for regulating indoor temperature.
Currently, these systems also qualify for 30% uncapped federal income tax credits in addition to 35% N.C. State income tax credits!
Equipment Selection for a Geothermal Heating & Cooling System
The actual heat pump that houses the compressor, blower, and controls to move heat comes in different sizes and configurations to accommodate all projects. These fit nicely in new construction homes, as well as existing home modifications. If you are looking to include radiant floor heating in your home in the Triangle, we have geothermal heat pumps that produce hot water on demand.
Indoor Air Quality Accessories for Your Geothermal Heat Pump
As with any of our equipment, Bowman Mechanical Services can add features to enhance your geothermal system in Raleigh or Garner. One item that is unique to the geothermal heat pump is the HRP (heat recovery package) or desuperheater that provides preheated water for your water heater. You can also add any indoor air quality features.
Bowman Mechanical Services offers energy-efficient geothermal system installation and repairs in Raleigh, Garner, Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary, Apex, Holly Springs, Clayton, and throughout the North Carolina Triangle.
Am I A Candidate For A Geothermal System?
A large percentage of our systems are vertical closed loops. Each district has setbacks and they are not as restrictive as one may think. Notice the size of the front yard below and how the yard looks afterward.
You have heard about geothermal but are not sure what the advantages could be, let’s look
- Operation costs are the lowest of any available fuel source
- Longest life of any equipment (55-year warranty on loop) 25-25 average on equipment
- No outdoor equipment (no coil cleaning, no noise, no eye sore, no chance of theft, etc)
- Low maintenance (no extreme operating conditions, no heat exchangers, no igniters, etc)
- Best heating (longer run of 100°+ at registers, no “cold heat”, no defrost cycle, resistive heat strips usually not needed except in poorly insulated homes)
- Best cooling (colder air coils provide better dehumidification)
- Preheat hot water
- Best fit for home (no flue pipes, no outdoor units, no makeup air, no gas meter, no gas tank, simply tie into duct)
- Better resale value for home (compare utility savings with comps and multiply by 10 years)
