Geothermal Heating and Air

Geothermal and Geothermal Repair Maryland and Delaware

Geothermal heating and cooling systems are energy efficient systems designed to use the stored energy found beneath the earth's surface.  The temperatures below the surface basically remain the same year round.  Geothermal heating/cooling can save you 30% to 60% on your monthly energy bills.  North Star is able to install a new geothermal system in your home/business from start to finish including the installation of the necessary well systems.  Our installation department is fully knowledgeable of geothermal systems as well as our sales staff.  Feel free to contact our office (sales) to provide you with further information as well as any questions on this growing trend in the HVAC industry.

Geothermal Heating
During the winter, ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling systems absorb heat stored in the ground through the water that circulates in its underground loop. This heat is carried to the ground source heat pumps where it’s concentrated and then sent as warm, comfortable air throughout your home.

When you need heating the most, the air outside is coldest. As a result, a traditional air source heat pump works hard to extract the amount of heat from the cold air needed to properly heat your home. In contrast, a geothermal system consumes less energy as it easily absorbs heat from the abundant supply stored below ground, making geothermal heating significantly more energy efficient.

Gas furnaces burn natural gas to provide heat for your home and are only 98% efficient, while geothermal systems use significantly less energy collecting heat from the earth, achieving 400-600% efficiencies.

Geothermal Cooling
During the summer, ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling systems absorb heat from your home and transfers it to the underground loop where it is then absorbed by the cooler earth. The geothermal heat pump uses the cool water returning from the earth to create cool, dehumidified air for your home.

When you need cooling the most, the outside air is hottest. A traditional air source heat pump must work hard to force the heat from your home into the already heat saturated air. In contrast, a geothermal heat pump consumes less energy as it easily rejects heat into the cool earth, making geothermal cooling significantly more energy efficient.
