Don’t miss this opportunity! Without a doubt, the economics of a geothermal heating & cooling system are the best when planned and incorporated into new construction: You need an HVAC system anyway, why not the solution that offers superior comfort
Let’s take a detailed look at the economics of replacing an existing heating and cooling system with a geothermal system by running the numbers for a fairly typical situation: Current scenario: A 2-story, 2400sf home with full basement; central air
As an engineer, I find hydronic radiant floor heating systems the most fun residential heating system to design – challenging yet rewarding. Done right, they deliver superior comfort for the client in each and every room while working within physical,
What is a Hydronic System? A hydronic system uses water to move heat between a heat source (e.g. a boiler, heat pump) and a heat emitter. Hydronic systems are often associated with radiant heating, but isn’t always the case.
The many advantages of geothermal include significant cost savings, reducing our reliance on fossil fuels and ensuring a more safe and comfortable home environment.
