Geothermal Basics for Annapolis

11/07/2011
Continental Services is committed to bringing you the information that you need to make an informed decision when it comes to the right heating and cooling system. Knowing the available options makes all the difference. The first part in a five part series, this article will introduce you to the basics of a geothermal solution.
 
So, how does a geothermal system maintain your home’s warmth during the winter and cool during the summer? It’s all about making the most out of the stored energy that can be found under your feet. The temperature of the earth just under the surface in Annapolis stays pretty the same all year long. The unit makes use of this constant temperature by using a loop system to pull the warmer temperature from the ground and move it to the home during colder months, and pushing the warmer air from the home and depositing it in the ground during the warmer months.
 
A WaterFurnace geothermal system doesn’t use fossil fuels to create its conditioning. It uses the heat that already exists in the ground without contributing any carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, or any other air pollutants to the environment. The only electricity that a geothermal unit will use is the electricity that operates the fans, compressor, and pump. All of this lends itself to a lean, clean-running, energy efficient heating and cooling system.
 
Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) and Coefficient of Performance (COP) are ratings on how efficient your potential Annapolis geothermal system can condition your home; EER relating to cooling and COP for heating. WaterFurnace geothermal systems maintain the highest ratings on the market today. With our Envision series, it leads the way. This geothermal pump offers an unparalleled 30 EER and a 5.1 COP. That’s conditioning that will definitely save you green.
