ClimateMaster Heat Pumps
Homeowners today know how important it is to conserve energy. Even without considering the environmental benefits, anyone can appreciate the savings on their monthly utility bill that come with more efficient heating and cooling systems. One of the best ways to offset your energy usage without sacrificing comfort is by adding a geothermal heat pump. Heat pumps use the earth’s natural energy to deliver year-round home comfort, reducing the amount of work your furnace or air conditioner has to do to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Home Climates sells and installs ClimateMaster heat pumps in Lancaster, Harrisburg and throughout the central PA area. If you’re considering adding a heat pump to your home HVAC system — or you’re simply interested in getting more efficient use out of your furnace or air conditioner — contact us today to learn more about the benefits of choosing ClimateMaster.
GEOTHERMAL HEAT PUMPS: HOW THEY WORK
Humans have been using geothermal energy for centuries. The technology employed by ClimateMaster heat pumps is simply a modern refinement that uses this energy to boost the efficiency of your existing HVAC appliances. In central PA, even though outside temperatures vary wildly over the course of the year, underground temperatures remain relatively consistent.
Geothermal heat pumps use a compressor (a pump) and a series of pipes — referred to as a loop — to transfer heat to and from the ground. When it’s cold out, a geothermal pump moves heat from the ground to your home. During the warmer times of year, excess heat from your home is sent into the ground.
Although heat pumps do rely on electricity, they are as much as five times more efficient than traditional heating appliances, saving you a lot of money in the long run. A geothermal installation works with the existing duct system within your home and because the well pipes are buried, there is no need for an outside unit.
THE INSTALLATION PROCESS
A properly installed, high-quality geothermal heat pump system can deliver both immediate savings and a lifetime of reliable use. The first step is to determine the appropriate system for your home. When choosing a system, you need to consider:
- the size of your home
- your typical heating and cooling needs
- land availability
- ground conditions
The representatives at Home Climates can also help you weigh the options and find the best solution. Once we’ve chosen the right heat pump for your home, installation involves laying the loop system piping, connecting the compressor, and installing any ductwork or radiant heating systems.
