Debunking 3 Myths About Geothermal HVAC Systems
Ever wonder if your home in the greater Hampstead, NC, area is suitable for a geothermal HVAC system? Geothermal heating and cooling systems can increase your home’s overall energy efficiency. As you research geothermal HVAC systems, don’t fall for these three common myths:
Geothermal HVAC Systems Require Large Lots
One of the most common myths about geothermal systems is the amount of land needed to install them. The reality is there are three different types of geothermal HVAC systems: the horizontal loop, the vertical loop and the water-source loop.
Each is uniquely suited to different lot sizes and different water features on your lot. The good news: We can configure geothermal HVAC systems to work within any size lot.
Geothermal Systems Increase Radon Gas
Geothermal HVAC systems can cut your energy use by up to 70%. But some homeowners worry about the potential of releasing radon gas when installing them. Radon gas, if present on your property, won’t increase. We can easily control radon gas emissions with our professional installation services if testing determines high levels of it in your home.
Geothermal Systems Only Work with New Homes
