What is Geothermal?
Geothermal systems use the thermal energy stored in the upper portion of the Earth’s crust to heat or cool a building, replacing conventional heating and air-conditioning systems. The heat 20 or 30 feet down in the ground stays at a constant 50-60 degrees (usually 55) year round. Geothermal harnesses that energy residing in the earth to pull water from a well and run it through a series of loops which in return either heats or cools your home, as shown in the picture above.
Why is Geothermal better than tradition oil systems?
Geothermal systems use the dirt to actually heat or cool your home! Which also means no more oil, which means more environmental friendliness. The great thing about Aquatech Water Specialties Geothermal Systems is they can actually perform up to 400% better than traditional heating and cooling methods. This means less energy used which results in more money saved in the long run.
Are all Geothermal Systems the same?
No, all Geothermal Systems are not the same. Every installer has a different way of designing and implementing there system. Lucky for you though, Aquatech Water Specialties is the pioneers for Geothermal Systems on the DelMarVa Peninsula. We’ll design you a system thats guaranteed to perform and last a lifetime!
Is Geothermal right for me?
Whether you are a new homeowner or an existing homeowner Geothermal is always a good choice to look into! It is always recommended that you go with geothermal for new homes as it is easy to come in and drill all the necessary holes and do all necessary hookups before the home is built or and landscaping is laid, this minimizes cleanup and leaves virtually no presence that we were even there! If you are an existing homeowner it is still recommended that you go with Geothermal but there are some precautionary steps that have to be taken. A representative from Aquatech Water Specialties will come out, for free, and inspect your property to determine if Geothermal is right for your home. Sometimes restrictions such as property size, home size, or home location prevent us from drilling the system. But 9 times out of 10 there is no difficulty getting you a new Geothermal System installed in your home!
