For those who want to reduce their carbon footprint, increase their energy savings, and maintain comfortable indoor temperatures, nothing beats the efficiency and function of a geothermal system. Unlike traditional HVAC systems that burn fossil fuels, geothermal heating and cooling units use electricity to access the constant temperature of the earth to keep the temperature of any building comfortable year-round. Whether replacing an old HVAC system or installing a new one, Anytime HVAC can set up an eco-friendly Atlanta geothermal system in your home or business.
How a Geothermal System Works
The first step in considering a geothermal system is to understand how it works. The secret lies in the fact that the ground we stand on absorbs around half of the solar energy the earth receives. This results in a constant, moderate temperature at the frost line, which is about ten feet below the surface of the ground.
When cold winter temperatures set in, the ground at this level stays warmer than the earth’s surface above it. When the sun’s rays beat down in spring and summer, it stays cool below the surface.
In comparison, air temperatures fluctuate greatly from season to season. Most traditional HVAC systems rely on air sources for heating and cooling, meaning they’re at their least efficient when you need them most.
Geothermal systems work by using electricity to pull heat from the earth’s internal temperature into your home during the colder months, and transferring unneeded heat back below the surface when temperatures get warmer.
There are three components to a geothermal system. These consist of an inside unit, a water piping system that carries heat back and forth from the ground, and an air delivery or radiant system that transfers heat to the house. This cycle results in geothermal heating and cooling, which is remarkably more efficient than air-based HVAC systems.

The Advantage of Geothermal Systems
While installation of a geothermal system usually costs two to three times that of an air source system, it lasts much longer and works more efficiently. Life expectancy is 25 years for indoor equipment and outdoor plastic lines can last well beyond 50 years. Their long lifespan and impressive energy savings mean that after 5-10 years, you’ll have recouped the additional cost of switching to a geothermal energy system.
Typically, your heating, cooling, and hot water costs amount to around 50-75% of your total utility costs, meaning energy-efficient geothermal systems a smart investment to lowering your energy bills.
For homeowners who are interested in reducing their carbon footprint, a geothermal system is the most energy efficient and environmentally clean heating and cooling option available. In fact, a geothermal system is the eco-friendly equivalent of taking two cars off the road. They reduce your home’s energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions while generating clean, quiet energy.
Geothermal heating and cooling systems bring peace of mind for homeowners who want to save on energy costs while being environmentally conscious. They can also qualify you for energy incentives, rebates, and tax credits while increasing the value of your home.
