Geothermal heating and cooling is all about harnessing the power of the earth and utilizing it to transfer heat. Much like a refrigerator, a geothermal system has the ability to move heat from one location to another. With the earth absorbing 48% of the sun’s solar energy, the result is a fairly constant underground temperature of 45 degrees in northern climates to 70 degrees in southern climates.
Through pipes buried in the ground, Enertech systems transfer heat from the earth to a home in the winter, then reverse the process by pulling heat from the home in the summer and releasing it into the cooler ground during the summer months. The result is the most comfortable living environment imaginable that is both eco-friendly and provides substantial cost savings on utility bills. It’s an all-around win for every homeowner.
