It’s Time to Consider Geothermal

Given the limitation on certain resources and expensive utility costs, it makes sense to think outside the box. Geothermal is becoming an answer that many of our customers from Asheville are implementing.

What Is Geothermal?

This is a type of heating and cooling system that derives heat from the earth. In many cases, geothermal heat pumps use water. The water travels in a closed loop from the house to under the earth, to transfer heat. In the winter, the water will absorb heat from the ground and release it into the house. In the summer, the opposite occurs to cool the home.

Geothermal Benefits

There are many advantages to using geothermal, the first of which is that it is renewable energy. It produces almost zero emissions and is available throughout the year. Another important feature is that geothermal heat pumps use significantly less energy than traditional systems. This can translate into considerable savings on your energy bill.

The geothermal approach to heating or cooling a house in the Asheville area is flexible. Our team at 1st Choice Service Group Heating & Air can install a system at your home that has a relatively small footprint. Since there are only a few parts that actually need to be enclosed, we can likely work with your current layout.

These systems are built to last for more than 20 years, which is almost double the life span of a standard furnace. If you have any questions about any warranties that may come with a certain installation, we’d be happy to go over them with you.
