Geothermal Heating and Cooling in Havertown, PA
Did you know that there is an abundance of inexpensive, renewable energy lying right beneath your home? Geothermal power has become more and more commonplace for residents throughout Havertown, PA and the rest of Delaware County and the Main Line. Geothermal cooling and heating is the best form of HVAC use for many homeowners, keeping them comfortable all year long while reducing their energy bills.
Of course, a geothermal system can only work as well as it’s meant to if it is professionally installed by highly trained service technicians. You needn’t look any further than the team here at Walsh Brothers Plumbing and Mechanical Services, Inc. for that! We provide comprehensive geothermal installation, repair, and maintenance services—all with upfront pricing and a 100% satisfaction guarantee!
Is a Geothermal Installation Right for You?
It’s helpful to know, first, how a geothermal heating and cooling system works. While a traditional heat pump uses air as the medium for heat exchange, a geothermal heat pump, also called a ground-source heat pump, uses the earth. Indoor coils absorb or release heat from the air and serve as the home’s distribution system.
What makes geothermal systems so efficient is that they take advantage of the relatively constant ground temperature, which is much less variable than outdoor air temperatures. Geothermal system benefits also include:
- Quieter Operation
- Fewer Maintenance Requirements
Underground loops make the geothermal heating and cooling process possible, and therefore these systems are often best installed during new home construction. That doesn’t mean they’re completely out of the question for a retrofit in an older home, however! Contact our Havertown, PA team today to learn more.
Should You Consider a Geothermal Replacement?
If you already have a heat pump in your home, or even a central system, you may be tempted to go with the same type of HVAC unit when your system reaches a certain age. More and more homeowners are choosing to go with a geothermal replacement though, for the following reasons:
- Geothermal Saves Energy: Since geothermal systems access the steady temperature of the earth, they function at higher energy efficiency levels than air-source heating or cooling systems—3-4 times more efficiently, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
- Geothermal Systems are Reliable: Traditional air-source heat pumps can struggle when outdoor temperatures get too low, since they must draw their heat energy from the air outside. Geothermal heat pumps, however, don’t have this problem.
- Geothermal Is More Durable: The indoor components of a geothermal system can last more than 20 years, while ground loops can last more than 50!
