What kind of filter should I buy?
When it comes to the decision about what filters to buy, we recommend a pleated filter with a MERV rating of 8-10. MERV 8-10 rated filters are a better choice and are more commonly found in commercial applications. They will collect particles as small as 3 microns and are a good choice for home owners also.
What is a MERV Rating?
A MERV rating is what is used to rate the ability of an air conditioning filter to remove dust from the air as it passes through the filter. Higher MERV ratings mean fewer dust particles and other airborne contaminants pass through the filter.
Whats the difference between a heat pump and an air conditioner?
A heat pump offers both heating and cooling while a air conditioner offers cooling only.
Will a heat pump provide all the heat needed in the winter?
A heat pump generally becomes less effective below 35. Below that, it
may be necessary to supplement the heat with either an electric heat strip or a fossil fuel furnace.
How expensive are heat pumps?
The initial cost of heat pump equipment can be a little more than conventional air conditioners. However, the cost is minimal when you factor in the savings gained in heating .
What is Geothermal Energy?
Geothermal energy is the movement of heat from one place to another for storage and later use. The systems start with an underground loop providing a ground source heat pump the ability to exchange heat, by either drawing heat from the ground when in heating mode or moving heat from a home to the ground when in cooling mode.
What are the benefits of a Geothermal System?
There are many benefits of having a Geothermal Heating & Cooling System. A Geothermal System is extremely efficient, can pay for itself in energy savings and there's no need for outdoor equipment. It's Earth friendly and it's easy to maintain. Geothermal Systems last longer than traditional systems and they work in almost any climate.
How long does it take to install a geothermal system?
Depending on drilling conditions and the size of the unit, it typically take 2 days to get the loops in the ground. To replace existing air source heating and cooling equipment the installation can be done in about 2 days, so about 4 days, start to finish for retro fit equipment.
