With rising energy costs and environmental concerns, many Fern Creek, KY residents are eager for cleaner, more efficient heating and cooling. Homeowners have many options from which to choose, but it’s hard to beat the high-efficiency comfort of a new geothermal HVAC system.
Harnessing the Power of the Earth
As any local knows, Fern Creek sees drastic swings in air temperature throughout the year. Dig just below the surface, however, and the temperature remains far more consistent. Even at shallow depths, the ground consistently remains warmer than the air in winter and cooler than the air in summer. Geothermal HVAC systems take advantage of this fact to enable the efficient transfer of heat.
During cold weather, geothermal systems absorb heat energy from the ground through a long, fluid-filled ground loop. That heat energy is then concentrated and used to warm your home. In the warmer months, the process is simply reversed. Heat is absorbed from your home and transferred to the relatively cooler ground below.

The Ground Helps Protect Your Investment
It’s true that geothermal HVAC equipment may cost more initially than many other kinds of heating and AC systems. However, over the life of the system, you stand to recoup the difference and then some. This is due to substantially lower operational costs like utilities, repairs, maintenance, and even replacement systems. While the indoor components for geothermal systems generally last around 15-20 years, the components that are buried underground can last well over half a century.
