4 Myths about Geothermal Heat Debunked

Using geothermal heat in your home or business ensures that the temperature inside doesn’t fluctuate and you, your family members, or your employees remain comfortably warm when it’s cold outside. Despite the multiple advantages of geothermal heat, many myths have abounded and continue to be spread regarding these systems.

Geothermal HeatMyth #1: Geothermal heat systems are not considered a renewable form of technology. Many believe that geothermal heat isn’t a renewable form of technology because these systems use electricity. However, they only use a small quantity of electricity to efficiently heat homes and businesses.

Myth #2: Geothermal systems require large expanses of property. If you think your home or business is not a good fit for a geothermal heating system due to lack of space, you may be surprised to learn that these systems can benefit most locations. Depending on the characteristics of the desired installation site, the polyethylene piping earth loops can be installed in a vertical fashion.

Myth #3: Geothermal pumps are noisy. Geothermal systems are actually extremely quiet, since there is no outside equipment used that could bother your neighbors or those inside your home or business.

Myth #4: Geothermal systems cannot heat multiple loads simultaneously. Geothermal HVAC systems are designed to handle multiple loads at the same time. For instance, one of these systems could adequately heat your home, pool, and water simultaneously.
