Why choose this heating and cooling system?
Ed’s Heating Cooling Plumbing Electric is proud to partner with Bryant when considering the addition of a geothermal heating and cooling system. Bryant has provided millions of homeowners some of the industry’s finest equipment in the last 100 years – and it is no wonder they are leading the way when installing the cleaner, more efficient geothermal systems. Combined with Ed’s licensed technicians working closely with the homeowners and walking them through every step of the process, it is no wonder when Dayton residents want to go green with heat pumps, radiant heating and cooling, they call upon Ed’s!
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency states that geothermal systems are “the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean, and cost effective space conditioning systems available today.” That’s because a geothermal system taps into the earth to capture free, renewable energy. Instead of drawing power from electric plants, these efficient systems get all they need from the land your property sits upon.
The earth absorbs about 47% of the sun’s energy that reaches it, storing that energy in the ground. A geothermal system extracts that free energy for heating during winter. For cooling, the system removes heat from the home and dumps it into the cooler earth. This transfer of heat energy is done through a series of pipes buried in the ground, or sunk in a pond, or by using well water. Because a geothermal system simply moves heat instead of burning a fossil fuel to generate it, it’s more energy-efficient.
Why Should You Select a GeoThermal Solution?
- Cost Savings – Generally, no other heating and cooling system offers lower operating costs, with savings up to 60% compared to ordinary systems
- Quietness of Operation – Unlike ordinary air conditioners and heat pumps, no outdoor unit is required. Bryant geothermal units use heavy-duty, fully-insulated cabinets for quiet operation. Quiet, soft starting variable speed blowers are used in many models
- No Outdoor A/C or Heat Pump – reduces chance of weather related breakdown and is more aesthetically pleasing
- Environmental Friendliness – Geothermal is a clean, green, and renewable technology to reduce your carbon footprint now and for future generations
Eco-Friendly HVAC Systems Help Save Money and are More Efficient
Geothermal heating and cooling systems make use of the earth’s renewable energy, offering you a more efficient and reliable resource than your typical gas or electric furnace or air conditioner unit. Utilizing geothermal energy helps the environment with a positive carbon footprint – whose effects on our planet are the same as taking two cars off the road, or planting an acre of trees.
Ed’s Heating Cooling Plumbing Electric are experts at installing and maintaining geothermal HVAC systems, and have been assisting Dayton residents for over 30 years. The clean energy provided by the heat pumps put into place definitely reduces the need for costly fuel burning power plants – offering efficient energy from the geothermal resources on your property It’s clean technology – geothermal units produce no on-site emissions.
There are over 1 million geothermal installations today, resulting in the avoidance of more than 5.8 million metric tons of carbon dioxide and more than 1.6 million metric tons of carbon equivalent annually. In addition, existing geothermal installations are the environmental equivalent (in emission reduction) of taking 1.2 million cars off the road, or planting more than 385 million trees.
Geothermal systems can be installed with a variety of loop system configurations (see images to right.)
Closed loops use re-circulated fluid in a series of pipes installed vertically, horizontally, or in a pond.
Open loops use well water. Ed’s will evaluate which design will work most efficiently for your home.
