We were thrilled to be contacted recently by the people at House and Home Magazine. They were writing a feature piece on Energy Efficient Escapes, and looking for ways to make homes more comfortable through environmentally-friendly approaches. They essentially broke the process down into two parts: Identifying problem areas, and upgrading for efficiency. Our ultra-efficient geothermal systems were highlighted as an upgrade solution:
"Another “green” way to make your home more energy efficient is to install a high-efficiency or geothermal heat pump. “A high-efficiency heat pump can save homeowners up to $150 a month in energy bills, while a geothermal system can save around $200 a month,” says Marc Holden, a sales representative for Peirce-Phelps Inc., the HVAC distributor for R&D Heating & Cooling.
The most common type of heat pump is an air-source heat pump, which transfers heat between your house and the outside air. An air-source heat pump can reduce the amount of electricity you use by as much as 30 to 40 percent and can also dehumidify better than standard air conditioners, which results in less energy usage and more cooling comfort in the summer.
A geothermal heat pump, also referred to as a ground-source or water-source heat pump, achieves higher efficiency by transferring heat between your house and the ground or a nearby water source. While the cost of a geothermal heat pump is significantly higher than an air-source heat pump, ground-source heat pumps have lower operating costs because they take advantage of the relatively constant ground or water temperatures."
