Geothermal Installation and Services in Tullahoma, TN, and Surrounding Areas
Wherever you live in south-central Tennessee, the temperature beneath the earth’s crust remains between 50 and 60 degrees year round. Geothermal heat pumps take advantage of this source of reliable energy to keep your home or business comfortable in every season. Also called ground-source heat pumps (GHPs), geothermal systems are among the most energy-efficient HVAC products available today. Stroop’s Accurate Refrigeration is proud to offer a complete range of installation, repair, and maintenance services for these energy-saving systems.
How Geothermal Pumps Work
A typical GHP system consists of loops of tubing buried horizontally a few feet below the surface on your property. When space is an issue, systems with vertical pipes are also available. In either case, the piping serves as a conduit for a solution which works as a heat exchanger between your building and the soil. In winter, the fluid captures the geothermal heat and moves it indoors. During the summer, the system reverses, depositing heat extracted from your home or business into the ground.
Clean, reliable and plentiful, geothermal energy is an underused power resource that adapts to a variety of functions. GHPs can provide both heating and cooling for an all-in-one comfort system for your home or business. Some models can even augment your supply of hot water. While central-air systems are the most popular option, you can also use GHPs for radiant or hydronic systems. Stroop’s offers advancements in geothermal Tullahoma residents will appreciate. These options can serve an array of residential, residential new construction and commercial applications.
Money-Saving Benefits of Geothermal Energy
Because GHPs tap into an existing source of energy, they produce around four units of heat for each unit of electrical power they use. This technological feat makes them very energy-efficient:
- With lower energy bills, a GHP system can pay for itself in two to five years.
- Heating efficiencies are up to 70 percent higher than electric-powered heaters.
- Cooling efficiencies are up to 40 percent higher than conventional air conditioners.
- Ground loops last more than 50 years, and the system life for indoor components is typically 25 years.
