Geothermal Solutions

Did you know that the ground absorbs nearly half of the solar energy our planet receives? As a result, the earth remains at a constant, moderate temperature just below its surface all year round. However, air temperature varies greatly from summer to winter, making air source (traditional) heating and cooling least efficient when you need it the most. Geothermal heating and cooling is a highly efficient alternative to HVAC or other AC systems.

Barker’s Heating & Cooling is proud to offer geothermal solutions for your home heating and cooling needs. If you’re ready to implement an eco-friendly regulation system in your home, count on Barker’s to support you all the way!

How Do Geothermal Systems Work?

Geothermal heating and cooling systems take advantage of the stable temperature underground using a piping system, commonly referred to as a “loop.” Water circulates in the loop to exchange heat between your home, the ground source heat pump, and the earth, providing geothermal heating, cooling, and hot water at remarkably high efficiencies.

During the winter, ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling systems absorb heat stored in the ground through the water that circulates in its underground loop. This heat is carried to the ground source heat pumps where it’s concentrated and then sent as warm, comfortable air throughout your home.

Are Geothermal Systems Really More Efficient?

The air temperature can change so drastically when the seasons change, but the temperature underground retains and absorbs temperatures very differently. This is what allows geothermal systems to be so efficient during the extreme seasons.

Geothermal Heating

When you need heating the most it is often winter and the air outside is the coldest of the year. As a result, a traditional air source heat pump works extra hard to extract the amount of heat from the cold air needed to properly heat your home. In contrast, a geothermal heat pump system consumes less energy as it easily absorbs ground heat from the abundant supply stored below your home, making geothermal heating significantly more energy efficient.

Gas furnaces burn natural gas to provide heat for your home and are only 98% efficient, while geothermal systems use significantly less energy collecting heat from the earth, achieving 400-600% efficiencies.

Geothermal Cooling

During the summer, ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling systems absorb heat from your home and transfer it to the underground loop where it is then absorbed by the cooler earth. The geothermal heat pump uses the cool water returning from the ground to create cool, dehumidified air conditioning for your home.

When you need cooling the most, the outside air is often the hottest. A traditional air source heat pump must work hard to force the heat from your home into the already heat-saturated air. In contrast, a geothermal heat pump consumes less energy as it easily rejects heat into the cool earth, making geothermal cooling significantly more energy efficient.

Lower Your Electric Bill & Energy Costs With Geothermal Heating & Cooling

Are you paying too much on your heating, cooling and hot water electric bills? Geothermal is a great way to cut down on those energy costs.

In fact, you can save up to 80% each year on heating, cooling and hot water bills just by switching from a traditional HVAC system to a ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling system!

According to the US Department of Energy, the typical American family spends at least $2,000 a year on home electric bills. Heating, cooling and hot water costs combined make up over 70% of the typical electric bill, so installing energy-efficient HVAC systems, like a ClimateMaster geothermal system, may be one of the smartest home improvement investments you can make to lower energy bills.

In addition to a lower electric bill created by a more efficient heating and cooling system, homeowners around the country are taking advantage of the 30% federal tax credit and other local energy tax credits that reduce the upfront costs of buying and installing ENERGY STAR® appliances and renewable energy technologies like ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling systems.

What Our Customers Say

Very Professional

Chandler did an excellent job checking out our heat pump. He was very professional, communicated well, was responsive to our questions and I was very happy with everything he did.

Steve M.

Honest and Trustworthy

Our AC went out during a late summer heatwave. Called Barkers and Victor worked very hard to get the outside unit up and running. Two hours later we conceded to the death of a 29 yo unit. Victor notified the office the next morning, and within 24 hours we had a complete new system installed, and the house cooled by the time I got home from work. Highly recommend. Honest and trustworthy.

Susan H.

Very Impressed

We were impressed by this company from the first phone call. Reed was an exceptional young man; very personable and professional. The installation team of Mike, John and Cody did an excellent job. Barker’s is a business with high standards and we are very satisfied with everything about them. So glad we found this company!
