Every year, more than 50,000 geothermal heat pumps are installed in the United States. With such a large number of homes making the switch to this greener alternative, it’s not surprising that a few misconceptions have taken root in the public’s mind. That’s why our specialists at All Climate Heating and Air Conditioning have decided to dispel these myths and misconceptions for you.
We Will Run Out of Geothermal Energy
False. The energy contained in the first 10 kilometers of the Earth’s crust dwarfs the amount of energy from all oil and natural gas sources combined. Geothermal energy is a renewable resource. You can rest assured that even if the entire world chooses to use geothermal heat pumps as the primary heating source for their home, we will not run out of this energy.
Geothermal Energy Is Not Reliable
False. Compared to other sources of renewable energy such as solar power and wind energy, which are highly dependent on location and current weather, geothermal power is stable. In fact, geothermal power has remained one of the most consistent and predictable sources of renewable energy in the past 5 years.
As an extension to this characteristic, geothermal heat pumps can function at any time of the year regardless of the season, climate or weather. In fact, our Bryant GHP can function as both a heating source and an air conditioner for your home.
Geothermal Heat Pumps Need Plenty of Space
This is majorly false but there is also a little bit of truth mixed in as well. There are some models that do require ample space before being installed. Our specialists are trained to maximize utility based on location and we even carry GHP’s that can be placed vertically underground to minimize its space requirement.
