West Harrison, Indiana is just over the Indiana state line from Harrison, Ohio. Separated by a common street, both towns also share a climate that easily dips into freezing during the winter months. High and low temperatures put your HVAC to work, driving up energy costs. In addition to sealing leaks around windows and doors and using a programmable thermostat, you can partner with Mother Nature to reduce your energy costs.
Geothermal Systems Work with Mother Nature
A geothermal system is a special kind of heat pump. In a conventional heat pump system, heat is moved from the outside air to your house in winter time. In summertime, the pump moves heat from inside your house to the outside air. During hot summers and cold winters, heat pumps operate inefficiently. Geothermal systems use the relatively constant temperature of the ground around your house to maintain heat exchange efficiency year round. Using a loop of narrow pipes installed in the ground, geothermal systems exchange heat with the ground better than by air.
Geothermal Systems Save Money
Leveraging the stable temperature of the ground, geothermal systems use less energy. A geothermal system can be twice as efficient as a conventional heat pump system reducing your energy bills by as much as seventy percent! Geothermal systems also have a long-life which means fewer repairs and longer times between the need to replace your system. An additional benefit is that geothermal units can also deliver up to half of your hot water practically for free.
Geothermal Systems are Environmentally Friendly
Geothermal systems are friendly to the environment in significant ways. By using less energy geothermal systems help lower fossil-burning fuels.
