Is Your Home Right for Geothermal Energy?

If you're curious about investing in green building in Seattle, then you should consider several different options for heating your home in an efficient and environmentally responsible manner. One way to do this is via geothermal energy.

Geothermal energy works by having a series of pipes underneath your home circulate water, thereby helping to draw the warmth below the earth up to your home in the winter and force heat and humidity in your home back down to the earth during the summer. Not only does geothermal energy help save a ton in terms of energy costs, it requires very little energy to operate the pumping system.

In order to make use of geothermal energy, you will need to have enough land in order to build a geothermal trenching system; small properties won't have the space necessary. Also, if your land is hard to dig through because it's steep or rocky, it may not be worth the effort. The initial costs can be high, but you will probably end up saving money in the long run.

If your property is suitable, consider investing in geothermal energy. Contact us at Conner Remodeling & Design for additional advice today.
