Geothermal Heat Pumps
WHAT IS A GEOTHERMAL HEAT PUMP? These heat pumps take heat from the warm earth and distribute it throughout your home in the form of hot air or hot water. They can reverse this process in the summer time to provide air conditioning.
UP TO 5 TIMES FOR COST EFFECTIVE Most geothermal heat pump systems have COP’s (coefficient of performance) of 3 – 4. That means for every one unit of energy used to power the system; three to four units are supplied as heat. Compared to an electric baseboard COP of 1 or burning oil 0.7. The WaterFurnace 7 Series™ COP is 5.3, the top in the market for efficiency , for every dollar you spend, you get up to $5 in usable heat. PAYS FOR ITSELF IN SAVINGS While the geothermal heat pump cost might be more than a traditional HVAC installation, the monthly savings will far exceed the cost difference. Typically we estimate that the savings you’ll see on your utility bill will pay for the extra installation cost in five to seven years
