Fight back against rising energy costs by taking advantage of the earth’s own energy. Geothermal energy is an ultra-efficient, cost-effective way to reduce power consumption. A geothermal system could be the solution you’ve been looking for in your home or business. With more than 50 years of experience in the heating and air conditioning business, Conditioned Air is leading the way in bringing geothermal systems to businesses and residences in Greater Houston. Our professionally certified HVAC technicians are specially trained to design, install, and maintain ground-source energy equipment. Let us put our expertise to work for you.
Just below your feet is a rich, stable, inexpensive source of energy. Geothermal equipment taps into the natural power of the earth and uses it to offset the energy required to heat or cool your building. In traditional HVAC systems, outside air is used in a heat-exchange system. The equipment has to work harder during Texas’s blazing hot summer days and during those sudden winter freezes. In a geothermal setup, fluid-filled pipes are installed in the ground a few feet below the surface in a vertical or horizontal loop system. The near-constant temperature of the earth creates a stable base for heat exchange, without the extremes of the outside air.
The benefits of geothermal energy are numerous. Initial installation costs are typically higher than that of traditional systems, especially for a retrofit project. However, the monthly savings and added value to the property quickly offset the higher price. These systems provide safe, clean energy even with a small amount of land. The power is renewable and sustainable, and it helps to conserve fossil fuels. An additional benefit is that there is no noisy outdoor unit. You can also expect:
Geothermal installations must be custom designed based on your available land, the geology, and the heating and cooling needs of your building. Horizontal loop systems are usually the most common — and economical — for new residential construction. Our team will work closely with you to determine the correct setup. Tax credits may be available to help offset the costs of purchase and installation.
As with traditional systems, a geothermal heat pump will require routine maintenance to keep it running at peak efficiency. We’ll provide you with a recommended schedule for maintenance and explain any warranty requirements for routine service. Ask about a preventive maintenance agreement to help you budget for service and repairs. If an emergency arises, our service crews are available 24 hours a day for immediate repairs.
