The “green” movement is more popular today than ever before. As more and more people want to help conserve the earth’s resources, the demand for green technology ever increases. At Robert B. Payne, we understand the desire to go green, which is why we offer our customers geothermal heating and cooling technology. This technology is easy to understand, easy to use, and saves money and energy for homeowners across the state.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that heating and cooling systems in American homes account for over 150 million tons of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere every year. Additionally, heating and cooling systems drain more energy and money than any other system in American homes, with a whopping 43% stake in monthly utility bills. Geothermal systems can cut both the costs of heating and cooling your home and the amount of gasses produced by other systems.
Geothermal technology ascribes to 3 basic principles:
- The top level of the earth’s surface maintains a relatively moderate temperature all year long.
- During cold months the system takes the relatively warmer temperature from the earth and uses it as heat for your home.
- During hot months it replaces the hot air in your home with cool air from the earth.
Geothermal technology uses heat that’s already coming from the sun to produce energy. Best of all, this system can come right from your own backyard! This green technology is completely sustainable and has been heating and cooling homes around the country for years.
At Robert B. Payne, we are committed to helping you save energy and money. We believe in the green movement and offer our customers cost- and energy-efficient heating and cooling solutions for Fredericksburg homeowners.
