3 Intriguing Facts to Know About Geothermal Heat Pumps

March 20, 2020

When it’s time for a new heat pump or air conditioning system for your Cookeville, Tennessee, home, consider a geothermal heat pump. While traditional heat pumps and air conditioners use air to transfer warmth into or out of your house, geothermal heat pumps make use of the Earth’s interior warmth and consistent temperatures. Here are three facts about geothermal heat pumps that you need to know.

Ideal for All Climates

The in-ground loop of the geothermal pump is buried at least 30 feet below the Earth’s surface. At this depth, the Earth’s temperature is a consistent 45 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. This is true no matter where in the USA a home is located. If you live in a place with harsh winters or hot summers, these heat pumps will work well for your home comfort needs. They also work well at any humidity level. From the dry Southwest to the humid South and Midwest, the heat pumps maintain optimal indoor temperature and humidity levels by transferring warmth and moisture to and from the Earth.

Energy Savings

For most households, heating and cooling are their biggest utility expenses. Installing a geothermal heating and cooling system could lower your monthly utility bills by up to 65 percent compared to a traditional furnace, air conditioner or heat pump. Homes located in places with cold winters or hot summers will enjoy the biggest savings on heating and cooling costs.

Long System Lifespan

Geothermal heat pumps have a lifespan that far exceeds air-source heat pumps. The interior components last for an average of 25 years. The in-ground components last for as long as 50 years. It’s unlikely that you would ever need to repair or replace any of the exterior components. This technology is highly reliable, and these heat pumps have been used in homes across the USA for more than 50 years.
