Geothermal Heating & Cooling Systems in Reading

Save on Energy Bills with Geothermal Systems

Essig Plumbing & Heating offers geothermal heating and cooling systems that bring comfort to your home, result in substantially lower energy bills than traditional methods and provide that comfort in a manner that is much more environmentally-friendly. Geothermal provides a renewable energy resource that can more than quadruple the efficiency of conventional systems.

How Geothermal Systems Work

Geothermal systems use the earth to provide cooling when the weather is warm and heat when the weather is cold. The farther you go into the earth, the hotter it gets. Some of this heat is a remnant of the formation of the planet; the remainder is generated by radioactive isotopes well below ground level that constantly decay.

Just a few feet underground, soil stays from about 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit all year. We install a series of pipes (known as a loop) underground and back into your home, and fluid runs through these pipes. In the winter, heat from these pipes is pulled by an electric compressor and heat exchanger and brought into your home through your ductwork. The process is reversed in the summer, as pipes take heat outside.

Geothermal WaterFurnace Installation in Reading

Essig Plumbing & Heating is proud to carry geothermal WaterFurnace systems in Berks County, PA. These systems use the renewable energy found in your backyard to bring comfort to not only your home but your pockets as well.

A WaterFurnace geothermal system circulates fluid through loops buried six feet under the surface where the temperature is stable. These pipes bring warm air into your home in winter and cool air into your home in summer. They use the earth to provide comfort to your home without having to burn fossil fuels to manufacture warm or cold air.

In the winter, the system circulates fluid through the loop of underground pipes, absorbing heat energy from the earth. This fluid is sent to the WaterFurnace heat exchanger, which absorbs the heat from that fluid and distributes it through your ductwork in the form of warm air.

Benefits of Geothermal Systems

Geothermal systems are becoming increasingly popular for a number of reasons, including:

  • Cleaner and more efficient than fossil fuels
  • Good for the environment
  • Lower operating costs, can even slash your energy bills by up to 40 percent and pay for itself within 5 to 10 years

By installing a geothermal heating and cooling system in your Reading home, you can also take advantage of several substantial rebates and incentives. You may also receive tax credits and exemptions, and be able to claim deductions on your taxes as well. The combined total of these incentives can significantly slash the time it takes for you to see a return on your investment.
