Geothermal Heating and Cooling Systems in Reading


Essig Plumbing and Heating offers geothermal heating and cooling systems that bring comfort to your home, result in substantially lower energy bills than traditional methods and provide that comfort in a manner that is much more environmentally-friendly. Geothermal provides a renewable energy resource that can more than quadruple the efficiency of conventional systems.

How Geothermal Systems Work

Geothermal systems use the earth to provide cooling when the weather is warm and heat when the weather is cold. The farther you go into the earth, the hotter it gets. Some of this heat is a remnant of the formation of the planet; the remainder is generated by radioactive isotopes well below ground level that constantly decay.

Just a few feet under ground, soil stays from about 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit all year. We install a series of pipes (known as a loop) underground and back into your home, and fluid runs through these pipes. In the winter, heat from these pipes is pulled by an electric compressor and heat exchanger and brought into your home through your ductwork. The process is reversed in the summer, as pipes take heat outside.

Comparing Geothermal to Other Sources of Energy

Geothermal is much cleaner than using fossil fuels and much more efficient as well. A geothermal system in your home can slash your energy bills by up to 40 percent and pay for itself within five to 10 years.


More Benefits of Geothermal Systems

By installing a geothermal heating and cooling system, you can also take advantage of several substantial rebates and incentives. You may also receive tax credits and exemptions, and be able to claim deductions on your taxes as well. The combined total of these incentives can significantly slash the time it takes for you to see a return on your investment.

Geothermal systems are becoming increasingly popular for a number of reasons, including lower operating costs and the fact they are good for the environment.
