Aye Matey, You Too Can Find Buried Treasure

Benefits of geothermal energy

Have you ever found any buried treasure? Truthfully, you don’t have to look very far or very long to find it. Masters Heating & Cooling wants to tell you about the treasure buried in your backyard. We’re talking about geothermal heating and cooling, and it’s like a pirate’s dream come true. 

Imagine making your home comfortable with very few emissions, reducing your carbon footprint, and cutting your utility bills. It’s not a futuristic dream, it can be a reality right now. Geothermal taps into the constant temperature that is present just a few feet underground.

Benefits of geothermal energy
It starts by installing a series of pipe loops to tap into the constant temperature. The engine driving the system is a ground source heat pump. It uses the same principle as the air source heat pumps used to heat and cool millions of homes. A geothermal heat pump is much more efficient because it’s using the constant ground temperature rather than the wildly fluctuating air temperature.

Masters is proud to feature the Water Furnace brand of ground source heat pumps. They are manufactured right here in Fort Wayne by an American company and American workers. While we may be a little biased, we think this long list of advantages makes geothermal worth the investment:

  • Removes hot & cold spots in the home
  • Cuts utility bills up to 70% (especially if used for hot water as well)
  • No electronic or mechanical unit exposed to rain, snow & ice
  • No outside noise to interrupt social activities

Geothermal heat pumps cost more upfront, but Masters doesn’t want you to be scared off by the numbers.  According to the energy.gov website, the extra cost is returned to you in energy savings within 5 to 10 years. After that, the monthly savings are like putting money in your pocket. Over the life of the system it could be a lot of extra money. The indoor components are estimated to last 25 years and the ground loop piping is expected to last for 50 years or more.

Admit it, you’ve always wanted to be a swashbuckling pirate. Well, here’s your chance to find your buried treasure. Call Masters Heating & Cooling to learn more about going green with geothermal heating and cooling.
