Premier Contractor Ernst’s GeoComfort Geothermal Systems Shine

Posted On: July 07, 2011

Geothermal heat pumps can be used to both heat and cool your home.  The efficiency at which this occurs is measured in two primary ways.  For heating, efficiency is indicated by the coefficient of performance, or COP, which declares the relationship between the heat provided and energy input required to produce the heat.  For cooling, efficiency is indicated by the Energy Efficiency Ratio, or EER, which declares the relationship between the heat removed and electricity needed to make it happen.

You may be interested in an Energy Star qualified model because of the energy savings they guarantee.  If so, look for a minimum rating of 2.8 COP or 13 EER in the unit you select.  Geothermal heat pumps intrinsically save you money.  The initial purchase may be higher when compared to traditional gas furnaces and central A/C units, but you save money every month in operating costs.  In the summer, the heat that’s removed from the home is used to heat water for free.  In the winter, the cost of heating water is still reduced by about 50 percent when you implement a geothermal system.

As an Edwardsville area resident, you may be interested in having a geothermal system installed in your home.  While these units are designed to save you money no matter where you make your purchase, it’s worth your while to learn about Ernst’s GeoComfort Geothermal System.
