Have you been looking for a way to make your Alexandria home more energy efficient and environmentally friendly? Trading your traditional HVAC system for a geothermal heating and cooling system is a great way to do this! Once you have a geothermal system installed, you’ll notice a significant drop in your monthly energy bills due to your geothermal heat pump’s high efficiency operation.
We know that this technology is new to many homeowners, and you might have a few questions (or a lot!). Arronco Comfort Air has been providing top-quality geothermal systems to Alexandria homeowners for over three decades, and we’ll use that knowledge and experience to walk you through every step of the installation or replacement process!

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 the circulation of water to spread heat or cool air 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. Geothermal systems pump water through loops in the ground to transfer heat to or from the earth.

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 and cool it during the summer. They 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 your home.
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. Some benefits of installing a geothermal system for your Alexandria home include:
