Geothermal Cooling System
Randazzo Installs Bosch Geothermal Products in Southeast Michigan
Wherever you live, the temperature beneath your home remains constant regardless of the season. A geothermal system installed by Randazzo has the ability to harness the stable underground temperature to provide the cooling needs for you and your home. A geothermal system is able to do all of this at remarkably high efficiencies. So high, in fact, that in some cases your home’s energy use can be cut by up to 80%! Geothermal pumps are categorized as one of the most efficient and quietest heating and cooling options available. Installation costs are high, but your energy bills will be 30-40% lower than conventional heating and cooling technologies. Maintenance costs are typically lower as well.

How Geothermal Cooling Works
Geothermal cooling uses the ground’s temperature to help cool your home. The temperature underground is a constant 55 degrees year-round, and a geothermal system taps into this temperature to efficiently cool the home.
To do this, the system uses a series of underground pipes known as a loop. Water flows through that loop, drawing hot air from your home and distributing the heat back into the soil. When the water returns to the home in the loop, it is cooler and ready to draw more heat from the air in the home. The heat pump powers the circulation of this water through the loop, keeping a constant flow of hot air leaving the home and cool air replacing it. Removing the heat from the air in the home in this way effectively cools it with much less energy expenditure.
Benefits of Geothermal Cooling
Geothermal energy is one of the most cost-effective ways to heat the home in terms of energy use. In fact, these systems are so much more energy efficient and clean when compared to traditional HVAC systems that they have been acknowledged as such by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. However, they are significantly more expensive to install than traditional cooling systems, and this causes many property owners to avoid them.
Do the benefits outweigh the high initial cost? The geothermal cooling system is up to 80% more efficient and can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in cooling costs over its expected lifespan. This can quickly overcome the higher initial cost. Payment plans and tax incentives can help offset the higher cost, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of this more efficient cooling option without a high upfront cost.
