Geothermal heating energy is a renewable energy source because the heat is continuously produced inside the earth. Geothermal heating units use the earth’s natural heat to warm and cool your home for sustainable, environmentally friendly comfort. The Earth is like a “solar battery” absorbing nearly half of the sun’s energy. The ground stays at a relatively constant temperature throughout the seasons, providing a warm heat source in the winter and a cool heat exchange in the summer that keeps your home with constant comfort.

Energy-conscious homeowners explore options to help them reduce their reliance on fossil fuels. By doing so, they are often able to save on utility costs at the same time. Geothermal systems use the earth’s temperature and solar energy to spread heat rather than relying on air outside the home. By using the earth’s natural heat, the amount of energy that is required is drastically reduced. Additionally, because geothermal systems tap into the temperatures that occur several feet below the surface, there is less fluctuation with these temperatures than with surface temperatures that change by the season. Whether you need a new geothermal system installed, an existing system repaired or updated or a replacement system put in place, we can ensure that the work is completed properly. Our professional team has been stringently reviewed to ensure your safety when we make service calls. Our trained and certified technicians stand ready to start work on your geothermal heating and cooling service.
Geothermal systems heat and cool in a similar manner as using a traditional heating pump. Heat pumps are able to heat the home during the winter while also being able to cool it during the summer. Geothermal systems also utilize an antifreeze solution that circulates through underground piping in order to spread the thermal energy. This energy is ultimately connected to an indoor air handler and air ducts that are installed throughout the home in order to provide heating and cooling to the home. Geothermal heating systems pump water through loops in the ground to transfer heat to or from the earth. The EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy recognize geothermal systems as the most environmentally friendly, energy efficient, and cost-effective way to heat and cool a home. Geothermal does not emit carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, or other greenhouse gasses that contribute to air pollution. Heating and cooling bills are reduced by an average of 40% to 70% with Geothermal. Because geothermal systems do not burn significant amounts of fuel (gas, oil, propane, coal), they operate at a lower cost and are much cleaner. Our area is heavy in limestone, which means the heat storage and transfer rate is very efficient making it the ideal system for the tri-state area.
Although there are many benefits to implementing a geothermal system into your home, it can be dangerous to assign this task to someone who is not a trained professional. It is critical to use a professional to install, repair or replace a geothermal system. Professionals should be involved with each aspect of the project, starting with selecting the proper components. The components must correspond to the needed size for the living space. This helps to assure that the system is efficient and keeps everyone in the home comfortable. Additionally, a professional should be consulted to discuss the arranging and the necessary length of the piping that will be installed underground. Installing a geothermal system often involves excavation in order to properly install the system. Our trained HVAC technicians can take the necessary precautions to ensure that the geothermal system runs efficiently for years to come.
Geothermal heating, although a very simple system, requires expertise to properly size, select, and install for the best combination of comfort and cost. Arronco Comfort Air has been installing geothermal systems since 1986 and has thousands of systems operating. We are the leader in sales of WaterFurnace geothermal systems and therefore have fully trained installers with the highest experience. Arronco is proud to be the area leader in the total number of residential Geothermal installations and experience with geothermal in the markets we serve! In addition to being #1 in the markets we serve, we are in the top 5 on a national level in these categories.
Our experienced sales staff can review your existing system, discuss your comfort needs, and design the best, most efficient system for your home or business. Our installation technicians will install the outside system, and make any changes necessary to the inside system. Our long history of installing geothermal systems means there won’t be any surprises during installation.
