If you are thinking about installing a Geothermal Heat Pump in Portsmouth, VA, our technicians at Simmons Heating & Cooling are your local Geothermal heating and cooling experts.

    We are also there for you if you have a rare repair need on an existing geothermal installation, and we provide maintenance services as well. Geothermal systems are more energy-efficient than central air conditioning or gas furnaces. They are more energy-efficient than standard heat pumps that rely upon exchanging the heat in the air.

    The reason for this efficiency, when you heat and cool with a geothermal system, is that they utilize liquid-filled lines buried underground. The temperature underground stays at an even 50 degrees Fahrenheit year-round.

    Geothermal Heat Pump Installation

    Heat pumps using geothermal energy also have another advantage over conventional heat pumps. Since the units are indoors, they last longer than a traditional heat pump system. Though they’re indoors, geothermal heat systems are also very quiet because they don’t need to operate a noisy fan to exchange heat through the air. The liquid-filled pipes for geothermal heat systems also are very durable and rated to last about 50 years. According to the Department of Energy, you will likely be able to fully recoup the cost of installation of your geothermal heat system in about seven years because of energy savings each month.

    There are certain steps involved in a geothermal heat system installation:
    • Assessing the site
    • Obtaining building permits
    • Digging and laying pipes
    • Installing the heat pump indoors
    • Retrofitting to existing ductwork

    At Simmons Heating & Cooling, we’ll perform every phase of the process to provide you with an efficient new system. What’s more, it will use the greenest and most energy-efficient type of heating and cooling, geothermal energy.
