Using the Earth to Heat and Cool Your Home

Geothermal Basics

The earth absorbs almost 50% of the solar energy and remains a nearly constant temperature of 50 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit depending on geographic location. Working with an underground loop system, a ClimateMaster geothermal unit utilizes this constant temperature to exchange energy between your home and the earth as needed for heating and cooling.

 

In winter, water circulating inside a sealed loop absorbs heat from the earth and carries it to the unit. Here it is compressed to a higher temperature and sent as warm air to your indoor system for distribution throughout your home.

 

In the summer, the system reverses and expels heat from your home to the cooler earth via the loop system. This heat exchange process is not only natural, but is a truly ingenious and highly efficient way to create a comfortable climate in your home.

Invest in $avings

This is the best news… with the installation of a ClimateMaster geothermal unit, your  monthly utility bills will be lowered dramatically, leaving more savings for your family. A typical homeowner can save in the range of $600 to $1,200 annually.

 

How? The use of geothermal loops will allow the ClimateMaster units to use only a relatively small amount of electricity. The unit merely transfers heat to and from the earth, rather than creating it from fossil sources like conventional systems.
