Environmental Benefits of Geothermal Systems

In Waynesville, NC, many homes are starting to realize the benefits of switching to geothermal heating and air conditioning systems. At Premier Indoor Comfort Systems, we’ve been installing, repairing and maintaining geothermal systems for many years. In order to help educate our customers in the Waynesville, NC area, we decided to put together a quick explanation of how geothermal systems work and what environmental benefits they offer.

How Geothermal Systems Work

If you were to dig about 10 feet into the ground the temperature there would be around 55° F. Upon first thought, that doesn’t sound too interesting. But what’s amazing is that the temperature there is consistently 55° F no matter what temperature the air is above ground. Geothermal systems take advantage of that consistent temperature and use it to heat and cool your home. Using a series of pipes buried in the ground, geothermal systems circulate a refrigerant to absorb and deposit heat. So in heating mode, your geothermal system absorbs heat from the earth and moves it inside your home. In cooling mode it does just the opposite.

No Combustion

One of the most obvious benefits to geothermal systems is that during the winter, they don’t need to burn any fuels to produce heat. They use the clean, unlimited and free supply of energy in the earth. That way, your home doesn’t produce any harmful combustion gasses that can not only harm the planet, but can also potentially harm your family.

Less Electricity

Geothermal systems still require electricity to run the actual heat pump that extracts heat from the refrigerant. However, compared to other electric heating systems like electric boilers, furnaces or electric heat strips, they use far less electricity. This reduces the demand for electricity from coal factories that produce electricity.
