We proudly offer geothermal HVAC systems as a more energy-efficient means of heating or cooling your home.
Our East Troy geothermal HVAC systems are basically powered through energy that comes from within the earth. While temperatures change every day or with the turning of the seasons, ground temperature, specifically the upper 10 feet, remains to be between 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that when you source this temperature, your home will be consistently comfortable no matter if it’s freezing cold or extremely hot outside.
How Geothermal Systems Work
As the Earth’s temperature below the frost line remains fairly constant, geothermal heat pumps are significantly more energy-efficient and in a larger range of extreme temperatures than conventional air conditioners, furnaces or boiler. This makes the use of geothermal energy effective with radiant and forced air heating.
Our East Troy geothermal heat pumps use the near constant Earth temperatures to heat and cool buildings, transferring heat from the ground in the winter and reversing the process in the summer. Heat pumps are effective with conventional forced air systems, however, they are especially well-matched to in-floor radiant heating systems because they can be distributed more evenly on larger surfaces such as floors, making it more energy-efficient.
Federal Incentives for Geothermal Systems in East Troy
As established by the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and further enhanced in February 2009 by The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, there is an array of new federal energy incentives, including tax credits for geothermal heat pump systems. These incentives are effective immediately and are available for both residential and commercial systems to help geothermal energy grow in Wisconsin.
Tax credits include:
- 30 percent of the cost of a system, with no maximum for residential
- 10 percent of the cost of a system, with no maximum for commercial
Geothermal heat pumps are quickly gaining popularity among many homeowners in the area as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) branded this type of heating system as the most energy-efficient, ecological, and cost-effective HVAC there is with system paybacks as short as six years. Whether it’s for your residential home, multiple family units or even for schools, commercial and public buildings, healthcare facilities, and other commercial/ institutional facilities, O’Leary Plumbing & Heating, Inc. can help you install a geothermal heat pump.
