Commercial geothermal HVAC systems are quiet, durable, and easy to maintain. They’re available for warehouses, schools, offices, and many other buildings in James Island, South Carolina. They work like heat pumps, transferring warmth away from your building in summer and towards it in winter. The heat is transported through pipes filled with water or refrigerant. Here are some of a geothermal system’s many benefits for businesses.
Lower Operating Costs
Geothermal HVAC systems are more expensive to install than conventional units, but you can get your investment back over time through lower utility bills. Traditional heat pumps exchange heat through the air, but the pipes in geothermal systems are underwater or underground. Since ground and water temperatures don’t fluctuate with the seasons as much as air temperatures, geothermal systems are more efficient. They can also last decades longer than most other heat pumps and air conditioners.
A Better Image
After you invest in a geothermal HVAC system, you can attract customers by letting people know that your company is eco-friendly. Since geothermal systems don’t use as much energy, they create less pollution than units that need more electricity.
Inexpensive Hot Water
If the pipes in your geothermal heat pump use water instead of refrigerant and there’s a source of fresh water nearby, you may not need a separate water heater. Many individuals and businesses install pipes for a geothermal system in lakes or wells. The pipes filter the water, heat it, and transport it to your plumbing when needed. Many hotels use these systems to heat their pools. With radiant heating, pipes with hot water can also warm your walls or floors.
