With eco friendly homes and LEED certified buildings becoming more and more common, HVAC equipment with a low environmental impact is in high demand. If you’re looking for eco friendly heating and cooling options, you have several choices including solar thermal, air source heat pumps or mini splits. While these options might be cost effective and cheap to install, none of them offer the unparalleled savings or comfort of a geothermal heat pump.
Eco Friendly Homes Deserve Geothermal
Geothermal heat pumps are a popular choice for new construction homebuilders looking for an eco friendly choice that will also provide their customers with savings and comfort. Our water-to-air & water heat pump is a frequently selected option, because it provides radiant in-floor heating, forced air heating and cooling, and domestic hot water. This four-function machine will provide the most comfortable experience possible, while saving the homeowner money.
Just how much money? A properly installed residential geothermal system can achieve a COP of 4.0. This means the homeowner will save 75% on their heating costs when comparing to electric baseboard heat—that’s significant savings! These low operating costs are made even sweeter by the fact that the heat pump is harvesting free, renewable, and emission free heat from directly beneath the home.
Comfort, low operating costs, and zero emissions all contribute to making geothermal heat pumps the equipment of choice for eco-friendly homebuilders everywhere.
Get LEED Certified With Geothermal
One of the largest growing sectors for geothermal heat pumps is energy efficient commercial buildings. Using our water-to-water commercial heat pumps for radiant in-floor heat and provide cooling through hydronic fan coils is an extremely eco friendly way to keep a commercial building comfortable. While most commercial building installations achieve a COP of 4.0, the adoption of simultaneous heating and cooling designs use both sides of the heat pump and are able to boost COPs to 8.0 or higher. This is by far the most efficient way on the planet to heat and cool a commercial building. There is no other system that will even come close to this efficiency.
Because geothermal heat pumps are such an environmentally friendly aspect of a commercial building, they’re the popular choice for designers and architects working to develop LEED certified buildings. Many of our recent projects have been LEED certified, and a large part of their overall “score” is attributed to their geothermal installation.
