Considering New Heating Options For Your House Out In The Country? Look Into Geothermal Heating Today

Posted on

Owning a home that doesn't have a lot of close neighbors or connections to the city gas and sewer lines can be a great way to get privacy, but can cause utility woes. If you are interested in purchasing a home or you have already bought one that needs an upgrade to the heating and cooling system, there are some options to consider.

There are heating and cooling units that are highly efficient and that won't depend on gas or petroleum like the units of the past. Here are a few things to talk with your heating and cooling professionals about.  

Geothermal Heating and Cooling

If you have a lot of land it will be easy for you to have a geothermal heating and cooling system for your property. The geothermal heat pump will do the following:

  • Heat your living area with heat from the ground and atmosphere around the house
  • Pull moisture and heat out of your living areas to cool the house when needed
  • Run efficiently by using minimal electricity and no gas

You can have a backup heating option if your temperatures drop below freezing and you need more heat throughout the year, and infrared options can also be efficient.

Geothermal Water Heating

Not only does a geothermal heat pump have the ability to heat your living space, but to also heat your hot water. A geothermal hot water heater is also tankless, which is an efficient option. This type of water tank doesn't hold and heat water for hours, and instead it only heats and works as it's needed. Talk with the installation experts to see how many of these you want to put in around the house, because putting the tankless heaters in more than one place can improve the efficiency of the units even more.

The heating and cooling professionals can come out to your property and do an evaluation to see how much it would cost to install this type of system in your home, and how much time it will take. They will also want to view the topography to make sure that these types of systems are possible.

If you know that you can't hook into the city gas lines where the house is located and you are looking to make the home efficient and to lower petroleum costs, these are options to look into. Work with the professionals to pick out the best options for the property. To learn more, contact companies like Barnetts Heating & Air Conditioning.
