Geothermal – The Long Lasting Commercial Heating and Cooling Solution
Commercial Geothermal heating and air systems use the heat stored underground to warm and cool your entire facility…without fossil fuel while lowering your energy consumption. With geothermal, you get one single system, no fossil fuels, and almost no maintenance. Call B&T today!
How Does a Commercial Geothermal Heating and Cooling System Work?
Geothermal systems do not burn fossil fuels to generate heat. Geothermal systems uses heat from the ground, where the the temperature stays relatively the same all year long. Low-maintenance and highly efficient, these systems can last for generations. There are three main components in a geothermal system: the heat-pump unit, the liquid heat-exchange medium, and the air delivery system (your ducts). Pipes can be buried under the ground both vertically and horizontally, depending on your property.
Benefits of a Commercial Geothermal System:
- Interior Components Can Last 25 Years
- Underground Components Last 50+ Years
No Fossil Fuels Used
Commercial Geothermal System or Regular Heat Pump? Which is right for your building?
Traditional heat pumps or air-source heat pumps use indoor and outdoor coils to pull the heat out of the air and move it inside. Reversing the process In the summer, the heat pump literally pulls the heat out of your indoor air.
A commercial geothermal heating and air conditioning system includes a heat pump, but instead of pulling the air from outside it draws air from underground. The geothermal system does not have to expend as much energy to make your business comfortable. However, an air-source heat pump requires no digging and can be cheaper to install. Both are energy-efficient heating and cooling options that have been recommended by the U.S. Department of Energy and often have tax credits available.
Commercial Geothermal Units – Extremely Energy-Efficient Systems
Like a traditional furnace, a commercial geothermal system works with nature, not against it. Not to mention it uses less energy. Your geothermal system transfers heat to and from the earth and emits no greenhouse gasses. Heating and Air Conditioning systems using geothermal energy have been used in the U.S. for over 60 years and its predecessors were even used in ancient Pompeii.
Commercial Geothermal systems run more efficiently with no outdoor equipment and are resistant to common problems that often impact other cooling systems.
Geothermal systems do not consume water, are nearly soundless, and do not require space for installation.
