#1 Geothermal Heating & AC Installation Company in East Hampton, NY
Heating and cooling costs make up an average of 50% of your utility bills. If you dread seeing your monthly electricity bill, a geothermal heating and cooling system could be the answer.
Geothermal heating and air conditioners use a network of pipes to pull heat from the ground to condition your home’s air, making them more efficient than traditional systems. Call our team at Complete Comfort Control, Inc. to find out how these sytsms can save you money and help the environment.
What Is Geothermal Heating and Cooling?
Geothermal energy is a renewable energy that uses the Earth’s consistent temperature four to six feet beneath the surface. This temperature stays relatively the same year-round because about 47% of the sun’s energy (heat) absorbs into the ground.
Even though the air temperature fluctuates daily, revolutionary geothermal systems use the consistent heat source under the Earth’s surface, with an average temperature of 50° to 60°, to heat and cool your home using heat exchangers rather than pricy fossil fuels.
How Does Geothermal Heating Work?
Geothermal heat exchangers use the soil temperature underground and moderate the air outside using a ground loop. They then collect geothermal energy into the fluid in the underground pipes to pre-heat or pre-cool the supplied air before entering into the ventilation system and evenly dispersing it throughout your home.
A geothermal HVAC system is up to 500% efficient, which means for every one unit of electricity you pay for to run the system, you get five back to heat your home in the winter and cool it in the summer.
You may ask, “how much does a geothermal heat pump cost?” Geothermal heating and cooling systems have an upfront cost between $3,000 to $10,000 because installation involves laying hundreds of feet of pipe, usually underground. But consider this a long-term investment because you will make more than that money back in energy bill savings with the geothermal system’s highest energy efficiency on the market.
Types of Geothermal Systems
The most common geothermal heating and cooling systems use closed loops, although options for open-loop systems are available. We can construct open-loop systems underwater using natural groundwater, while we build closed-loop systems underground. Open-loop geothermal systems are cheaper than closed-loop systems are not always a feasible option because they require a natural groundwater source, like a well, creek, or lake.
Closed-loop systems come in three types:

Why Choose a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?
Geothermal systems are the most modern, premium, eco-friendly, and efficient HVAC systems currently available. Both residential and commercial buildings can benefit from geothermal heating and cooling systems. Geothermal systems:
- Last much longer than traditional ACs: The heat pump lasts 20 to 25 years, and the underground infrastructure lasts 25 to 50 years, compared to the traditional lifespan of 10-15 years.
- Are extremely reliable: Geothermal systems need much less maintenance than traditional systems.
- Are the most efficient heating and cooling systems available: Up to six times more energy efficient than traditional systems.
- Are environmentally sustainable: Geothermal heat pumps do not emit carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and other harmful greenhouse gases.
- Heat and cool your entire home effortlessly: No more hot and cold spots!
- Dehumidify the air in your home: Especially on sweltering, muggy days, you can maintain a fresh atmosphere with high-quality air. Dehumidified air can also help those with asthma to breathe easier.
- Accumulate less exterior damage: With no bulky system parts outside (it’s all underground), you won’t need to maintain or repair equipment exposed to the elements.
At Complete Comfort Control, Inc., we want you to receive the best value for your hard-earned money, especially when it involves something as important as the air quality and comfort in your own home.
