Indoor Air Quality
- Comfort Club
We’re accustomed to traditional heating and cooling systems in most local homes and businesses: usually centralized units that heat or cool the air in a single location, and then blow it through your home with a fan via a series of ducts. It’s an effective system, but it’s not the only one out there, and depending upon the needs of your Kansas City, MO home, you might benefit from an alternative model.
Geothermal systems, in particular, offer a lot of benefits to the right home, and with the trained team at Climate Control Heating, Cooling & Plumbing ready to perform installation, maintenance, and repair services, you can enjoy those many advantages with a minimum of fuss. Call us today to set up a consultation, and we’ll go through all of the basics with you.
How Does Geothermal Heating & Cooling Work?
If you drop down about 10 feet or so beneath the earth, the temperature of the soil remains stable, no matter how hot or cold it is on the surface. That’s geothermal energy, and it’s theoretically an infinitely renewable resource: allowing you to heat or cool your home for a fraction of the price.
The system lays a series of coils or tubes beneath the earth of your Kansas City, MO property, which circulates a mixture of water and antifreeze. The mixture either pulls heated temperatures from the earth in the winter, or releases heat from your home in the summer. Either way, that allows you to heat and cool your home while using very little energy in the bargain.
How Substantial Are Those Savings?
Depending on the size of your home, the savings can be considerable indeed. As a renewable resource, geothermal energy will never run out, meaning you only need to use a little electricity to power the pump and similar components. Geothermal systems cost more to install, since excavation is involved, but considering how high heating bills can get during our winters in Kansas City, MO (and our cooling bills during our scorching summers), you can enjoy considerable savings in the interim.
But it goes beyond that. Because geothermal systems are located underground, they’re not subjected to wear and tear the same way other HVAC systems are. That makes it less likely that a geothermal system will suffer a breakdown, and allows you to enjoy the benefits of such a system for many years to come.
Schedule Geothermal Services with Climate Control Heating, Cooling & Plumbing
Geothermal systems usually require a large patch of property to install, though vertical placement is possible in many cases. And they tend to benefit large homes rather than small ones, since the cost of keeping large homes comfortable tends to be so much greater than the cost of heating and cooling a small home.
Whatever the size of your property, however, you can count on our team to handle the job properly. That extends to maintenance and repair duties as well as installation. If you have a geothermal heating and cooling system, or you think one might be right for your home, call us today to set up an appointment!
