Geothermal Cooling and Heating
Clear the Air is pleased to announce we are now installing and servicing WaterFurnace Geothermal heat pump units in the Greater Houston area. After careful research of many different manufactures, we feel WaterFurnace support and quality is parallel to the high standards of Clear the Air.
Geothermal is the use of the earths stored thermal energy to heat and cool your home. Outdoor temperatures fluctuate with the changing seasons but underground temperatures don’t. Four to six feet below the earth’s surface temperatures remain relatively constant year-round. The average temperature is around 70 degrees year-round here in the Houston area.
How does geothermal work?
Geothermal is not new technology. The Romans used the earths energy in thermal waters to bathe in and heat buildings. The Native Americans used hot spring water to cook with and for medicine. Present day technology and the invention of refrigerant has made this process more direct and a LOT more efficient. We don’t have to rely on hot springs to achieve comfort. We can simply drill and tap into the power of the earths steady ground temperature.
With the average homes air conditioning & heating energy use totaling 2/3rds of the bill you get in the mail every month, this is by far the largest and easiest area to achieve savings on your utility bill.
There is a treasure buried in your yard!
Thanks to the Economic Recovery Act, there’s now a 30% renewable energy tax credit for homeowners who install a qualifying WaterFurnace geothermal comfort system. WaterFurnace geothermal heat pumps use the clean, renewable energy found in your own backyard to save up to 70% on heating, cooling, and hot water. They don’t burn expensive fossil fuels, they reduce our dependence on foreign oil and also happen to be great for the environment. Contact us for more information.
