The Most Efficient AC: Geothermal Heat Pumps

Are you a resident of Upstate New York looking to beat the heat this summer? If you’re considering replacing your old air conditioning unit, hold onto your hats because we’ve got what you are looking for: a ground source heat pump (GSHPs). In this article, we’ll dive into why GSHPs are the cool choice for your home’s conditioning needs.

The Scoop on GSHPs

  • Underground Magic: GSHPs harness the stable temperature of the earth beneath your feet to cool your home in the summer. By circulating water through underground loops, heat is absorbed from your home and transferred to the cooler earth. Think about how your current air conditioner expels hot air; the geothermal system does the same, except it transfers the thermal energy into the earth. This thermal energy is then stored to be utilized in the Winter to heat your home.
  • Quiet and Low Maintenance: Say goodbye to noisy outdoor units! Geothermal heat pumps utilize 1 indoor unit to heat and cool. GSHPs also operate quietly and require minimal maintenance compared to traditional air conditioners, saving you time and hassle.
  • Rebates and Tax Credits: Benefit from an upfront utility rebate (average $6,500 to $7,500), 30% federal tax credit (no cap), and 25% new york state tax credit ($5,000 cap). Your overall installation cost can be reduced by 50%+. With these savings, the cost is comparable to traditional heating and cooling systems, and cold climate air source heat pumps.
Installing a geothermal heat pump means saying goodbye to your outdoor equipment!
