Keeping a comfortable home in the greater Milford area is a challenge just about year round. A heat pump offers a cost-saving, space-saving alternative to conventional HVAC. A single system not only provides warm air in winter and cool air in summer but can deliver up to four times more energy than the electrical energy it requires to operate. Lower running costs, minimal maintenance needs and an exceptionally long service life make ground source heat pumps an excellent investment.
Ground-source or geothermal heat pumps take advantage of heat energy available underground. A mixture of water and antifreeze passes through an underground pipe system and circulates through a compressor that elevates its temperature. The process utilizes a coil, blower fan and ductwork. There is no combustion process, eliminating concerns with greenhouse gasses, fumes, odors and hot surfaces. Operation is clean, safe, quiet and especially environmentally friendly.
Ground-source heating and cooling is a beneficial option for new construction builds as well as retrofitting into an existing home. This type of system effectively handles demand regardless of outside weather conditions, helps with dehumidification in the summer and is eligible for federal tax incentives. Choosing a knowledgeable, experienced and qualified contractor for proper sizing, installation and service is essential to maximizing advantages. Onofreo Home Comfort Systems LLC welcomes inquiries. We’re happy to explain options, help you make smart decisions and handle every aspect of geothermal operation.
