Holliday Heating has become one of Spokane’s top ranking experts in this field. Your own backyard has the potential to be an energy source for heating and cooling comfort. A geothermal system circulates a water-based solution through a buried loop system to take advantage of the constant ground temperatures. A single piece of equipment has the ability to heat and cool your home, while providing some or all of your home’s hot water as well. Geothermal systems can save you 30% to 70% on your monthly utility bills. Please visit our geothermal page for further details.
All modern homes use some type of heating system to keep everyone inside warm during the colder months. Boilers, furnaces, radiant heat and electric heat are a few examples, but there is another type that has been growing in popularity, which is geothermal heating. This type of heating doesn’t require you to burn fossil fuels and is considered an eco-friendly way to heat your home. If you have been trying to find a way to keep your house heated and stay on the good side of the environment, geothermal heating may be the answer.
Geothermal heating gets energy from under the surface of the earth, in order to deliver heat to your home. A geothermal system uses water filled pipes installed underground to extract naturally occurring heat energy from the earth. A heat pump helps to bring that energy out of the ground to a distribution system that’s located inside the house.
Geothermal heating uses energy transfer from a heat pump and underground pipes, making it an eco-friendly choice to heat your home. So many homeowners know that their current system is burning fossil fuels and not environmentally responsible, but they aren’t sure where to turn. If this sounds like you, geothermal heating may be an option. Along with the environmental benefits, it is also more energy efficient, so you will save money on your heating bills when compared to standard systems.
There are many benefits to having a geothermal heating system installed on your property, but it does take a commitment on the part of the homeowner. For every 2,000 square feet of home, you’ll need about 1,800 feet of pipes. Obviously, larger houses require more work, so it’s important to make sure you’re ready before you give it the go ahead. Government tax incentives and utility rebates are available to take away some of the sting from the upfront costs.
If you’re sick of paying big heating bills and want a more environmentally friendly option to keep your home comfortable, geothermal heating may be the answer. Or maybe you need a repair or routine maintenance on your existing geothermal heating system.
