Tapping Into the Earth Stops Utility Companies from Tapping Into Your Wallet

Climatemaster-image1The ground absorbs nearly half of the solar energy our planet receives. As a result, the earth remains at a constant, moderate temperature just below its surface all year round – varying only a few degrees depending on your location. However, the air temperatures above are not as stable. Varying greatly – from the sizzling summers to Old Man Winter’s wrath – the temperature above ground is almost impossible to manage when it comes to heating and cooling your home. In fact, traditional HVAC systems are least efficient when the homeowner needs them the most.

Geothermal heating and cooling systems take that worry away from the homeowner, offering an easy solution that saves money. By taking advantage of the stable temperature underground using a piping system (commonly referred to as a “loop”), a geothermal heating and cooling system creates a perfect exchange from the earth to a ground source heat pump, directly into the home. This simplistic, yet highly efficient transfer provides the homeowner with perfect heating, cooling and hot water at remarkably high efficiencies.

One million Americans have learned about this process and have jumped on the energy-efficiency train, so to speak. Not only have they learned that the process is easy-to-use and extremely reliable, but they have also found that a geothermal heating and cooling system by the ‘masters’ of the industry saves them a great deal of money.

The ‘master’ we speak of is ClimateMaster, the producer of geothermal heating and cooling systems that are 400-600% efficient and can cut a homeowner’s heating, cooling and hot water costs by up to 80%.

The efficiency of the ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling system is unparalleled. In the winter, these systems absorb heat stored in the ground through the water that circulates in its underground ‘loop.’ The air quality is perfect at all times, with no cold spots leftover that require a door to be shut or a room to be closed off.

To take a well-known example that many use to heat the home; gas furnaces burn natural gas, but the gas furnace is only 98% efficient, while geothermal systems use significantly less energy by collecting heat from the earth, achieving 400-600% efficiencies.

When it comes to the blazing summer, ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling systems absorb heat from the home and transfers it to the underground ‘loop’, where it’s then absorbed by the much cooler earth. The geothermal heat pump uses the cool water returning from the earth to create cool, dehumidified air for your home. The process could not be easier, or more beneficial to the homeowner.

It is an absolute fact that homeowners can save up to 80% each year on heating, cooling and hot water bills just by switching from a traditional HVAC system to a ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling system. And even though the upfront costs for a geothermal heating and cooling system are a bit higher than the traditional way of thinking, the tax incentives and the annual electric savings makes the return on investment for the homeowner increase tenfold.

The figures released by the U.S. Department of Energy are almost too unimaginable to believe. It is known that the typical American family must spend at least $2,000 a year on home utility bills. Heating, cooling and hot water costs are referred to as: The Big Three – which, when combined, make up over 70% of the typical utility bill.

The list of facts and figures when it comes to the ever-expanding home utility costs make up a list a mile long, yet the benefits received from installing a ClimateMaster geothermal system make up a list far longer.
