Have you heard of geothermal energy, but aren’t really sure what it means or how it works? Most people are accustomed to the traditional methods of heating and cooling using electricity as the primary source of energy. With geothermal energy, however, the earth offers the energy source!
There are some incredible benefits to geothermal energy as an alternative to traditional heating and cooling solutions. Here are some quick facts about geothermal energy that you may not have known:
- The earth’s core remains a steady 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Geothermal energy harnesses this steady energy source.
- In order to utilize geothermal energy, holes must be dug deep below the earth’s surface and geothermal “loops” installed to control the flow of energy. These loops can be horizontal or vertical depending upon the size of the property and scope of the heating and cooling requirements.
- Benefits of using geothermal energy include its cost-effective nature and the fact that it is more environmentally friendly than some other forms of heating and cooling.
- Geothermal installations for homes and businesses are typically very low maintenance and require minimal servicing to keep them operating well.
