After savings, what are other benefits of a geothermal system? There is a long list of benefits that a building owner can get from installation of Geothermal System:
Heating In Winter.
After the pipes have done the heat transfer, and the geothermal unit has done its work maximizing the heat value of the circulated fluid, the heat is then drawn off the heat exchanger in the unit and circulated throughout the building using the existing distribution system.
Cooling In Summer.
In the summer, the process is reversed. The hot air in the building is essentially absorbed by the geothermal unit which now circulates much cooler pipe fluid. The heat is transferred first to the pipes then to the ground outside before returning, cooled, to the building.
The geothermal unit can be connected to the building”s existing heating/cooling distribution system, whether it’s gravity or forced air, water-based (typically with radiators) or water-to-water in-floor radiant.
Cleaning the filter once a month is all that’s needed to keep the system in good running order. Geothermal systems have no flame, no chimney, and no danger of fire or carbon monoxide poisoning. No more worrying about deadly natural gas explosions.
Free or Reduced Cost of Hot Water
A geothermal system will heat your water 2 to 3 times more efficiently than a regular hot water tank.
Pumps quietly circulate fluid through the heat exchanger. No combustion or forced-flame noise is heard. An outdoor condensing unit, often noisy, is not required.
Geothermal systems eliminate indoor temperature swings and humidity changes that often occur with traditional systems. The difference is simple: conventional systems rely on high-heat sources such as combustion and this means heat is delivered in bursts to satisfy your thermostat. With geothermal, a lower temperature heat source is constantly providing heat. Fewer bursts. Reduced noise. More comfort. Similarly, with a forced air system, by removing the source of combustion less dry air is required for burning. Less dry air. Again, more comfort.
In addition, the occasional odour caused by combustion of fossil fuel will also be eliminated. An added benefit of geothermal for your building is that the system effortlessly maintains a steady ambient room temperature.
Long System Life.
Geothermal units have a life expectancy of at least 20-25 years.
In uncertain times, self-reliance is always practical. And above all, geothermal is a practical solution based on a simple principle. You own your land, and the earth has latent heating and cooling capacity. A geothermal system simply taps into that resource, one that you already own. Freedom from the oil delivery truck, the propane fill up or the natural gas bill is now possible. The only energy required is electricity for the geothermal unit. The advantage is control over your energy future. That means less worry, knowing that the price of “free” thermal geothermal energy will never increase.
Geothermal systems use a renewable resource, the earth, which is efficient and non-polluting. Geothermal for your business has tremendous potential to reduce carbon emissions and significantly reduce our impact on global warming. A geothermal system installed, replacing a traditional energy source, reduces fossil fuel emissions.
We live in a time of diminishing natural resources. Most recently we have seen the impact on fossil fuels such as oil, where demand now outstrips supply. Not only does this force prices to rise sharply, it takes its toll on the environment, every day. Clean, renewable Core One Mechanical Group Inc. geothermal systems make use of the energy of the sun, stored in the ground, to heat and cool your business.? This energy is limitless, easy to access, and always available.? It is also totally non-polluting.
Federal and provincial governments recognize the important role that geothermal plays in reducing building energy use, and have created rebate programs to facilitate installation.
Core One Mechanical Group Inc. geothermal systems significantly reduce the amount of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) gas that would otherwise be produced by a traditional fossil fuel burning heating system. The number below indicates how many kilograms (kg) of carbon have been eliminated from the atmosphere to date as a direct result of Geothermal installations. With a Core One Mechanical Group Inc. Geothermal system you too can easily cut back on carbon emissions and reduce your overall impact on climate change.
The government of Canada has stated, “There is unlikely to be a potentially larger mitigating effect on greenhouse gas emissions and the resulting global warming impact of buildings from any other current, market-available single technology, than from [geothermal].” – Natural Resources Canada
