Choosing a geothermal heat pump for current condo build
About 5 years ago, our wife plus I bought a plot of land plus began planning the design of our home.
Both of us absolutely like the location, size plus surroundings of the piece of property.
Both of us were determined to build a condo that would satisfy our needs for our entire lives. It was pressing that the layout plus our choices for essential systems would fulfill our requirements as a couple as well as a growing family. My wife plus I devoted a good deal of time to research. Both of us looked into everything from peculiar types of roofing materials plus windows to lighting plus plumbing fixtures. One of our main concerns was determining the ideal heating plus cooling system. Although the winters in our section are fairly mild, heating is a necessity. The summer time heat plus humidity tends to be brutal. Both of us were looking for a method that would reasonablely handle temperature control while also keeping our bills plus impact on the environment as low as possible. After debating over cooling systems, oil furnaces, boilers plus ductless options, the two of us came across heat pumps. Both of us were initially interested in air-source heat pumps however then discovered geothermal systems. A geothermal heat pump is considered the most environmentally responble option for temperature control by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The start-up cost is quite a bit higher than a more conventional options because of the excavation needed to install the underground loop system. However, the underground loop takes advantage of the free plus renewable energy source provided by the sun. A geothermal heat pump offers efficiency ratings of 400%. It can cut the cost of heating plus cooling in half.
