Keeping your home cool without breaking the bank can be a tall order during a typical summer in Kilgore, Texas. If you are concerned about your utility bills or the environmental impact of your HVAC system, rest assured that you are not stuck using a traditional air conditioner. Discover how a geothermal heat pump can keep your family cool all summer long and lowering your utility bills at the same time.
In Texas, the air temperature can easily exceed 100 degrees at the height of summer. Even when the outdoor temperature is sweltering, however, the underground temperature remains relatively constant at around 50 degrees.
A geothermal heat pump takes advantage of these cool temperatures by sourcing energy from underground. With this type of system, a network of pipes, called an earth loop, circulates refrigerant a few feet below the surface of your yard and relies on a ground heat exchanger to maintain a comfortable temperature indoors.
Cooling your home with a standard air conditioner or heat pump often means substantial energy consumption and high utility bills. With a geothermal heat pump from JD’s A/C, your system can achieve an impressive 600 percent efficiency. Even though the loop installation and a new geothermal system require an upfront investment, significant savings on your utility bill means you can recoup your savings in as little as five years while making an environmentally friendly choice.
Many HVAC components last for an average of just ten years, which means you likely have to budget for a new air conditioner or heat pump a few times. With a geothermal system, you can give your wallet a break and spend your hard-earned dollars on a few more desirable perks like vacations and home improvement. Geothermal heat pumps last for about 25 years, and the piping systems last for at least 50 years, substantially increasing your HVAC system’s lifespan.
