Go Green With Geothermal Heating

How does saving 50%-60% on heating and cooling costs sound? Pretty good, right? Well, there's an easy way to do it and best of all, it's environmentally friendly. Want to be in on the secret? Find out how you can slash energy costs with a geothermal system below: Here's How It Works: Geothermal renewable energy draws upon the Earth's consistent temperature. Yes, the average Greater Cincinnati air temperature ranges from 16˚ to 89˚ throughout the year with peaks and valleys that can result in 100+˚ days in the heat of Summer and sub-zero days in the dead of Winter. But that's no match for a geothermal system. The Earth absorbs almost 50% of all solar energy and about 4 to 6 feet below the surface, the temperature remains relatively moderate and consistent all year, about 50˚F to 70°F depending on geographic location. Utilizing an underground loop system, a geothermal unit uses this constant temperature to exchange energy between your home and the earth as needed for heating and cooling. Go Green With Geothermal Heating | Heating Company Northern Kentucky | Rusk Heating & Cooling Will it be able to keep my house comfortable in the dead of winter, you ask? Of course it will! During the colder months, water circulating inside a sealed loop absorbs heat from the Earth and carries it to the unit. Here it is compressed to a higher temperature and sent as warm air to your indoor system for distribution throughout your home. Ready to make the switch?
