Before we talk about the benefits of Geothermal, we should define what it is: Geothermal Energy is heat (thermal) derived from the earth (geo). It is the thermal energy contained in the rock and fluid (that fills the fractures and pores within the rock) in the earth’s crust.
Sounds like something out of a science fiction flick doesn’t it? Well it’s not; Geothermal is a cost effective, energy efficient, reliable and renewable energy source that, thanks to Parker and Sons, is now available for you in your very own home.
The United States possesses vast underground stores of heat whose full potential has yet to be realized. While the entire resource base cannot be recovered, the recovery of even a small percentage of this heat would make a huge difference in the nation’s energy supply.
With the use of stable ground temperature, Geothermal technology is two to three times more efficient than the highest efficiency AC . Parker & Sons is proud to be the leader in Geothermal technology, using a water tied system to regulate temperature. The best HVAC system has an energy efficiency rating of 13 while Geothermal has an energy efficiency rating of 30+. This means that the annual savings on power bills are astronomical and the system basically pays for itself.
