Geothermal Heat Pump | Heating and Air Conditioning

Daniel Reichert - Wednesday, June 29, 2016

Ground source heat pumps are electrically powered heating and air conditioning systems that tap into the earth's relatively constant temperature to provide heating, cooling, and hot water for homes and commercial buildings. The geothermal heat pump consumes significantly less energy as the design utilizes the consistent ground temperature for heat exchange, rather than working against the variable outdoor air temperature.


Geothermal heat pumps utilize closed or open loops, installed in one of three ways: horizontally, vertically, or in a water source such as a pond or lake. The type you select will likely depend on the available land area and its characteristics at the site of installation. These factors are essential in determining the most economical means for installation of the ground loop.

The media used in a closed loop system can be water-based or refrigerant-based. In a typical water-based loop, water or antifreeze solution is circulated through the pipes that comprise the loop buried beneath the earth's surface. A refrigerant-based loop relies on refrigerant flowing through copper tubing buried beneath the ground.

During the winter, the fluid absorbs heat from the earth, and during the summer season, the system reverses itself to provide air conditioning by utilizing the ground as a heat sink.

Open loop systems operate on the same principle, and can be installed in a pond or lake where an adequate supply of water is available and open discharge is allowed.

The benefits of a geothermal heat pump system include the following: 

·      Can provide heating and air conditioning, and assists the hot water heater by providing preheated water when this option is chosen

·      When so equipped, may save you up to 50% on water-heating costs

·      The pipes of the loop typically last for 50 years, while the heat pump averages a 25 year lifespan

·      Provides significant energy savings for heating and air conditioning, with up to 50% savings on air conditioning, and 40% to 70% savings on heating costs

·      Operates quietly without noisy fan units to disturb outdoor activities

·      A geothermal system will produce four times the amount of energy it consumes, placing it at the top of the most energy efficient heating and air conditioning systems available 

·      A return in your investment requires only a few years

·      Rebates, credits or other incentives may be available

·      An environmentally friendly solution

The geothermal heat pump is not your standard heating and air conditioning system. Geothermal installation requires a certified installer with specialized training, experience, and knowledge in geothermal technology and installation. Hiring a qualified installer ensures you receive the expected performance from the geothermal heating and air conditioning system.

Our NATE certified HVAC technicians offer the skill and expertise required for the proper installation of a geothermal heat pump, or other heating and air conditioning system of your choice. Our professionals serve Dallas, Plano and the surrounding areas with the expertise that meets or exceeds industry standards.

However, any of the following households may find the ductless provides an energy efficient option for heating and air conditioning in Dallas, TX.


Additions

Inverter technology operates at variable speeds, providing more even temperature control, increased energy savings, and superior dehumidification. The compressor speed adjusts automatically, preventing the system from operating at maximum capacity every time it runs. The technology saves you money, and reduces wear and tear on the system.

Programmable Thermostat | Air Conditioning Service

Daniel Reichert - Thursday, June 23, 2016

The Benefits

If cutting the cost of cooling your home is a priority this summer, a programmable thermostat is one option that can save you money. With a programmable thermostat, temperatures can be set to be higher when you are away, and scheduled to cool the home just in time for your arrival. This results in significant energy savings by eliminating unnecessary heating and cooling when the home is unoccupied. The following provides energy saving tips and advice to maximize your comfort, while reducing the electrical bill. Effectively saving money begins by ensuring your HVAC system receives its annual tune up with air conditioning service, maintenance, and repair if required.


The annual tune up provides a thorough inspection of the system, enabling the technician to identify any components that are weakening, are faulty, in need of cleaning and/or lubrication. The annual air conditioning service enables your home’s HVAC to operate at peak efficiency, saving you money, maintaining your comfort, and extending the system’s service life by reducing wear and tear.

Equally important for maintaining the systems performance and lifespan is changing the recommended air filter as the manufacture instructs. Routine filter changes help to maintain a cleaner system, reducing the frequency of air conditioning service and repairs, saving you even more money.

In addition, the following tips will assist you in cutting the cost of cooling your home this summer:

·     Replace inefficient older appliances with energy efficiency models.

·     Turn off the lights in unoccupied rooms to save energy.

·     Unplug electronics, and other devices when not in use.

·     Avoid using the oven, as it heats up the home. Instead, opt for outdoor grilling, a slow cooker, or microwave. You can also serve cold meals such as salads, and sandwiches. If the oven is used, do so in the cool of the early morning.

·     Programmable thermostats can save as much as 20% on the cost of cooling your home.

There is a variety of programmable thermostat types available for your selection:

Programmable Thermostat

A programmable thermostat automatically adjusts the temperature according to the schedule and settings you have programmed into it.
