Geothermal Systems in Jersey County

Did you know that a geothermal heating and cooling system can significantly reduce the energy bills at your Jersey County home? Ernst Heating & Cooling can show you how a ground source heat pump can provide sustainable energy to keep your home comfortable year-round!

Geothermal energy works unlike any other HVAC system you’ve known before. Read on to learn how it can benefit you—and your energy bills.

How Does Geothermal Heating and Cooling Work?

Geothermal energy is heat sourced directly from the earth. Electric ground source heat pumps are connected to an underground loop to collect heat trapped in the earth and use it to both heat and cool homes and other buildings. In the winter, the heat pumps pull heat from the ground and direct it into the building. In the summer, the heat pumps take heat from the building to cool it down.

Ground source heat pumps are extremely versatile as they can be installed horizontally, vertically, or even in a lake or pond.

Benefits of Geothermal Systems

Significant energy savings (20 to 50 percent!) isn’t the only benefit of installing a geothermal heating and cooling system in your Jersey County home. Additional advantages include:

  • Safety – Geothermal systems don’t require open flames or flammable material, and all outdoor components are completely underground.
  • Convenience – One ground source heat pump can supply your home’s heating, cooling, and water heating. The indoor units usually take up no more space than a traditional HVAC unit.
  • Performance – Geothermal heating will keep your Jersey County home warmer in the winter. The heat pumps are extremely durable, and most manufacturers offer a warranty of up to 50 years for the system’s underground pipe.
  • Comfort – Geothermal systems help eliminate “cold spots” in your home.
  • Money savings – Although installing a geothermal heating and cooling system requires a larger initial outlay, you will benefit from significantly lower operating and maintenance costs for the life of the system. Most of your investment can be recouped in as quickly as three years. And you may be eligible for a federal tax credit or a utility company rebate.
