What Is Geothermal Energy?

Geothermal energy is the heat from the earth. It can be found almost anywhere, including South Carolina.

Geothermal heating capitalizes on the fact that temperatures in the Earth remain fairly constant when digging just a few feet below the surface. Whether you live somewhere where temperatures fluctuate or somewhere with a more constant temperature, the temperature below the surface stays relatively the same.

The upper part of the earth’s crust, roughly the first ten feet of ground, can maintain a temperature between about 50°F and 60°F. Geothermal heat pumps can use this energy to heat and cool buildings while using less energy than a typical heating and cooling system.

Geothermal heat pumps do not burn fossil fuels; instead they simply transfer heat from the earth to your home and back out. Because these pumps harness the earth’s available energy, they can save you anywhere from 30 to 70 percent on your bill over the next five to ten years.

Say it’s 5°F one night during the winter, and you have your thermostat set for a cozy 72°F in your home. It takes a lot less energy to reach your desired temperature if the starting point is 55°F using a geothermal heat pump.

How Does Geothermal Work?

Geothermal heating and cooling systems use a series of equipment and piping to transfer the earth’s energy to and from your house. A heat pump exchanger is the series of pipes called the “loop.” This loop of pipes is buried in the ground either vertically or horizontally, depending on the geography of the region. A fluid (usually water mixed with environmentally friendly antifreeze) is circulated through the pipes to absorb and dispel the heat from the ground. This heat is then extracted by the heat pump unit and delivered in or out of your living spaces using conventional ductwork air delivery systems.

Don’t Let The Name Fool You!

Geothermal heat pumps can heat and cool a building. They can even be equipped to provide hot water.

Will It Work In My Building?

Geothermal heat pumps are flexible and can be installed in new construction or retrofitted to work with existing systems.

Geothermal Is Environmentally Friendly!

Geothermal systems require very little maintenance and are environmentally conscious. These systems use the least amount of electricity, reduce air and water pollution, and produce the fewest emissions. They are safe for the environment as well as your home. They also provide the most stable comfort level, with more efficient humidity control and less noise.

Panther was able to schedule a service call the same afternoon I called. Bobby Foard and partner Williams arrived on time, quickly diagnosed the problem with the thermostat and replaced the faulty unit. Both technicians were professional and personable, giving helpful information for better AC performance. Mr. Foard offered a service maintenance plan by Panther to insure our AC units remain in top condition in the future. The overall service by Panther was excellent and affordable.

Mike, Josh, Bobby and the team at Panther once again took great care of us, this time was for more than maintenance on our 16 year old system. They got us repaired and up and running quickly for less than I thought it would cost. Thanks Panther

Anthony did a great job! He showed up on time, even earlier than I expected due to the window of time given for the appointment. He was courteous and explained every thing he would be doing.
