Geothermal: Highly Efficient Renewable Energy Technology
Source: The News, An ACHR Publication
Geothermal heat pumps have earned recognition as one of today's most popular renewable technologies in the HVAC industry. This is why:
- Small Footprint
- Widespread Distribution
- Low Emissions
- Base-Load Dispatch Ability without Storage
- Smaller Energy Bills
- Financing and Other Incentives
According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) a geothermal heat pump system creates a 40% greenhouse gas emissions reduction and cost savings between 30-50%.
By replacing cooling towers with heat pumps, you conserve potable water that otherwise evaporates or is used in a blowdown to flush the system.
