Indoor Air Quality
- Comfort Club
Geothermal systems provide reliable and inexpensive energy for heating and cooling throughout residential homes and commercial buildings in the Kansas City, MO area. But they can cost a great deal to install, since they require excavation and similar time-consuming operations. Residential homes can benefit from geothermal systems or geothermal heat pumps, but the up-front costs may be daunting as it compares to traditional HVAC systems or heat pumps. There are differences between air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps that you can discuss with a Comfort Specialist to see which can provide best for your needs.
Businesses, on the other hand, often have the capital to make such an investment, allowing the business or building owners to enjoy the savings on an ongoing basis to keep their space cool in the summer and warm in the winter without shattering their monthly budget from the energy efficiency from a commercial geothermal system. The larger upfront investment not only pays off in the savings from the energy efficiency, but the performance it offers and the lower impact to the environment are all aspects that make installing geothermal heat pump systems attractive to business owners.
Here in Kansas City, MO, the friendly pros at Climate Control Heating, Cooling & Plumbing can perform commercial geothermal services of all varieties, from installation to repair and maintenance of these advanced heating and cooling systems. Contact our team today, and we’ll show you what such a system can do.
How Does Geothermal Heating and Cooling Work?
Geothermal energy is found in the earth itself. Once you dig down past ten feet or so, the temperature of the earth remains relatively stable no matter how cold or hot it gets on the surface. Geothermal systems simply tap into that potential with a ground source heat pump. They run tubes through the ground, deep enough to be unaffected by surface temperatures, then circulate a mixture of water and antifreeze through them that performs a heat exchange with the ground and a heat exchanger in the system; tapping into that renewable energy and provides the incredible energy savings of ground source heat pumps and geothermal HVAC systems in general.
That allows you to enjoy comfortable temperatures no matter what the time or year, and because geothermal energy is an infinitely renewable resource, it costs just a tiny fraction of what other forms of energy do. Any Kansas City, MO commercial space can save a great deal by depending on geothermal systems to power their operating spaces.
Geothermal System Installation and Much More
The ideal time to install a commercial geothermal system is during the initial construction of a building, which is why we offer commercial contracting surfaces for building projects. But we can also perform installation for existing businesses that want to trade in their older heating system for something more efficient. We have years of experience handling commercial geothermal systems, and will go over all your options with you before proceeding. It can be critical to have installers that are experienced with replacing the commercial air conditioner systems and adapt and install new geothermal air conditioning systems in commercial applications.
But that also extends to repair calls and regular maintenance, performed any time of year and taken care of promptly to minimize the impact on your business. The maintenance costs of geothermal heat pump systems are far outweighed by the money saved by the incredible energy efficiency of these systems and the expert design and installation from our HVAC professionals. Our trained team can handle any situation, and will ensure that your commercial geothermal system gets up and running again quickly.
Benefits That Last
The benefits of geothermal systems involve the long–term rather than the short term. For an up–front investment, you can enjoy reliable heating and cooling for many years to come, at a fraction of the cost of other forms of heating and air. Because the energy comes from an infinitely renewable resource, you reduce your business’s carbon footprint tremendously, and because the bulk of the system is located underground, it remains surprisingly protected: reducing the chances of a breakdown. Beyond the energy savings and low operating costs, there are rebates and tax credits on your new heat pump unit that can help home and building owners to offset the upfront investment.
We are also able to install any indoor air quality control systems you may need with any geothermal ground source heat pump applications.
