Wilson Geothermal Heat Pumps
Heat & Cool Your Home with Renewable Energy
Geothermal heat systems draw on the earth’s natural stable, even temperature to provide an energy-efficient and reliable source of heating and air conditioning. A growing number of homeowners are switching to geothermal systems because they are among the most energy-efficient options for home heating and cooling. B & J Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. provides installation and repair of geothermal heat pumps in Wilson.
How Does a Geothermal Heat Pump Work?
A geothermal heat pump works by utilizing renewable solar energy stored in the ground around a house. By tapping into this stored energy, homeowners with a geothermal heat pump can expect savings upwards of 70% on their heating and cooling costs. Although temperatures change dramatically throughout the year aboveground, the temperature below the surface of the earth remains fairly constant. This consistent temperature provides a reliable source of renewable energy for heating and cooling your home. You will find your home is comfortable and your energy bills are significantly reduced after switching to a geothermal system.
There are many reasons to switch to a geothermal system, including:
- 70% of energy produced by these systems is renewable
- Comfortable, reliable heating and cooling
- Quiet operation
- Less maintenance is required
Geothermal heat pumps do not have as many mechanical components as conventional heat pumps, so there are fewer that can go wrong. Most of the system is also underground, where it is sheltered from the elements. The underground piping can last as long as 50 years.
Offsetting the Cost of Your System
These systems are an investment, but there are ways to offset the cost of installing geothermal heat pumps in Wilson. New geothermal energy systems are eligible for a federal tax credit of up to 30%, which can help you recoup some of the cost of installation. In addition, the money you save on your energy bills can help make up the difference and you will continue to enjoy these savings long after the system is paid off.
