Reduce Your Carbon Footprint With Geothermal Cooling & Heating

No emissions. No noise. Little or no carbon footprint. It sounds like the perfect blueprint for the newest electric car, doesn’t it? Think again.

Masters Heating & Cooling wants you to know you can meet those same environmental goals while heating and cooling your home. It’s not a futuristic pipe dream. It’s a geothermal heat pump using the constant temperature underground to keep your home comfortable in summer and winter.

There may be a little bias on our part, but we find it hard to believe a WaterFurnace brand heating and cooling system isn’t the right choice for you. 

The science is pretty simple. The constant ground temperature beneath the top layer of soil allows you to cool your home during the summer and heat it during the winter.

The system consists of a series of horizontal and vertical loops of underground piping. The geothermal heat pump (also called ground source heat pump) is what circulates the air through the home. These are just a few of the advantages:

  • Added comfort:
    • A WaterFurnace geothermal system delivers radiated air and removes hot or cold spots year-round.
  • Lower monthly costs:
    • Utility bills 70% lower than most standard systems
  • Reliability & longevity:
    • Installation is totally indoors
    • No electronic or mechanical unit is exposed to rain, snow, and ice
    • Vandals can’t damage the system since it’s all inside or underground
  • Green with a capital ‘G’:
    • No harmful emissions of greenhouse gases
    • The EPA recognizes geothermal as the most environmentally friendly & cost-effective heating and cooling technology
  • Noise:
    • There is no outside noise
    • Nothing to interrupt outdoor social activities

 

Masters understands the upfront costs are higher for a geothermal heat pump system, but consider these numbers from the energy.gov website. The extra cost is returned to you in energy savings within 5 to 10 years. After that, it’s like extra money in your pocket.

The system life is estimated to be 25 years for the indoor components and 50+ years for the ground loop piping.
