Geothermal systems are one of the most energy-efficient heating and cooling technologies available, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These systems offer Charleston residents and businesses reliable and cost-effective comfort year-round.
Geothermal HVAC systems offer a source of renewable energy that comes from the earth itself or from natural underground water supplies. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, these heat pump systems “use the earth’s natural heat to provide heating, cooling, and often, water heating.” In summer they draw heat from indoors and transfer it into the ground to provide cooling, and in winter they extract natural heat from the ground and deliver it to the interior of the building to provide heating.
