Save Money with Our Environmentally Friendly Solution
When summer rolls around, keeping your home or business cool becomes more expensive as outdoor temperatures rise. However, Timothy Off Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing offers a green air conditioning solution that keeps your utility bills as low as possible while helping the environment. This solution is a geothermal heat pump, which allows you to use Mother Nature to your advantage. Also known as a geoexchange system, this electrically powered, efficient, and clean technology utilizes the Earth’s natural warmth as energy to cool and heat your home or business. Because of that, a geothermal heat pump is a renewable energy technology that offers several benefits:
- Lower Maintenance Costs
- Lower Utility Bills
- Less Energy Consumption
- Less Greenhouse Gas Emissions
- No Large, Noisy Equipment On Your Lawn
A geothermal heat pump is a reliable source of energy in every season. Rather than rely on the sun or wind, it relies on the underground temperature of the Earth, which remains a constant 45 degrees to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Similar to a cave, underground temperatures are cooler than surface air during the summer but warmer in the winter. As a result, a geothermal heat pump is the perfect solution for cooling and heating homes and businesses in West Chester, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding area.
How Green Air Conditioning Works
A geothermal heat pump might sound like complicated technology, but if you have a refrigerator, you already have similar technology in your home or business. When you hover your hand near the back of the refrigerator, you can feel the heat that’s being pumped out from the inside. A geoexchange system works in the same way except that it transfers heat from your property or the ground to provide cooling or heating depending on your temperature settings.
In order to do this, the Timothy Off team members install an underground green air conditioning system that includes a looped system that’s filled with a water solution and a heat exchanger. During the summer, the system pulls excess heat out of your residential or commercial property and transfers it into the ground. Along the way, the water solution is cooled, converted into cool air, and sent through your ductwork to cool your property. During the winter, this process is reversed. The water solution moves through the pipes and absorbs heat from the ground along the way. When it reaches the heat pump in your home or business, the thermal energy is converted into warm air and circulated through your ductwork to warm your property.
On the other hand, a geothermal system could use excess heat to supply your property with hot water. In this case, the system will have a desuperheater equipped to recycle the extra heat from the heat pump compressor in order to heat water. Some geothermal systems have variable fans and two-speed compressors to reduce your energy bill even more while increasing your level of comfort. A Timothy Off technician can help you decide if any of these features are necessary to meet your cooling and heating needs.
