Des moines geothermal heating and cooling

For most homeowners, up to 70% of a home’s total energy bill goes toward heating, air conditioning and hot water. The biggest opportunity to save large amounts of money on your energy bill is to increase the efficiency of these systems. Turn to geothermal heating and cooling to save money, as well as the environment. 

Geothermal systems capitalize on the solar energy stored year-round just beneath the earth’s surface. This free geothermal energy is an unlimited, renewable resource. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized geothermal systems as the most environmentally friendly, cost-effective and energy-efficient heating and air conditioning technology available. You can make a significant contribution to a cleaner environment, while saving up to 70% on your home’s energy bills. 

Want to save even more money? You get tax credits for installing geothermal in your home. Earn a federal tax credit of 30% of the system cost and a state tax credit of 20 percent of federal. You also get a rebate from MidAmerican Energy.

What Exactly Is Geothermal Heating?

Geothermal systems use a loop of high-density polyethylene water pipe placed underground, where almost 50% of all solar energy is absorbed and a temperature between 50° to 70° is maintained. Water and an anti-freezing agent are circulated through these underground pipes to absorb and expel heat, depending on the season.

In winter, the system absorbs heat from the earth and converts it to warm air for heating your home. In summer, the system reverses itself, gathering heat from your home and expelling it into the cooler earth. Typically, a geothermal heating and air conditioning system requires half the natural gas or half the coal for electricity normally used.
