Just a few feet beneath the surface, the ground in the Twin Cities maintains a consistent temperature. It contains enough warmth to heat your home, even on very cold days. In fact, the earth captures about 47% of the sun’s heat! In the winter, a heat pump transfers warmth from the ground to your home. In summer, the process is reversed: heat is transferred out of your home.
Why Choose Geothermal?
Most Twin Cities homes can benefit from a geothermal system. Although the up-front costs are higher than the other systems, the long term benefits and savings far outweigh the initial investment.
Geothermal systems don’t make any heat or use refrigerant to cool air. They simply transfer heat in and out of the home.
Over the life of the system, the operating cost is significantly lower than other heating or cooling options. After the initial installation, you can see up to 60% in savings, when compared with other heating and cooling systems. Geothermal systems qualify for tax credits and energy rebates. Since these programs vary in scope and duration, contact us to learn about the latest offerings. Our in-home consultants are knowledgeable on the current rebate programs, including those for geothermal Twin Cities homes.
Geothermal systems provide excellent dehumidification during summer and consistent home temperatures in the winter.
Geothermal units have fewer moving parts and last longer than normal air conditioners and heat pumps.
Your home’s water heater can consume a lot of energy. Extra heat from your geothermal system can be used to heat your water heater, saving you even more.
