A geothermal HVAC system works like a conventional heat pump, but it transfers heat between your Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, home and the ground or a body of water instead of the outdoor air. These systems have an indoor air handling unit and a collection of underground or underwater pipes. They’re more efficient and environmentally friendly than many other systems. They also last longer with fewer breakdowns. With a geothermal HVAC system, you and your family will benefit from increased energy savings, indoor air quality, and comfort.
Temperatures underground and underwater are almost constant, so geothermal heat pumps don’t need as much energy as traditional heaters and air conditioners. Many geothermal systems can also provide hot water without using much extra power. That way, you won’t have to pay for a water heater and your home will have more storage space.
Indoor Air Quality
Since geothermal HVAC systems don’t bring outdoor air into your home, you and your family can reduce levels of pollen, dust, dirt, and other pollutants easily. That way, you can increase your indoor air quality and avoid annoying symptoms like eye irritation, a runny nose, headaches, coughs, and fatigue. The air handlers in geothermal systems run continuously, so more air passes through your air filters and they can keep your home healthier.
Geothermal HVAC systems are quieter than conventional systems because they don’t have outdoor units. You can have a conversation with friends, watch TV, sleep, and enjoy other activities without being interrupted by your air conditioner. You can use a geothermal unit to heat your pool, and connecting radiant heating to your system even lets you heat your bathroom or bedroom floors.
