With daylight savings giving us another hour of sunlight during the day and the sun more frequently coming out, we’re finally starting to get into higher temperatures this winter, which helps home heating. However, we’re not out of the woods yet, with temperatures overnight still reaching lower levels than we would like. Whether you need a cost-efficient solution to close out this year’s winter or are looking for a solution to bring into the next, Metzger’s Heating and Cooling can provide one with geothermal energy.
How it works
The geothermal system that Metzger’s provides uses the naturally occurring temperature in the ground to provide home heating throughout winter. Typically, Michigan ground temperature is around 50-55 degrees Fahrenheit. So, geothermal heating cycles air into the ground, the air warms up, and it’s sent back up into your home.
Geothermal energy is a great option because of how much of an investment it ends up being. With greater up-front costs, it may be unappealing to some, but, when it provides your home with 80% of the heating you need using only ground temperatures, you can see how you save one costs every winter past installation.
Fight the extremes
A great benefit to geothermal energy is that it helps you save not only during the coldest moments of winter, but you also save during the summer as well. Ground temperature stays consistent year-round, so it does the job for you of regulating your inner temperatures a great deal before the need for air conditioning or heating. So, if the heat is getting to you this summer, geothermal heat can cut the temperature down for you.
