If you are looking for one of the ultimate “green” technologies to heat and cool your home, look no further than the Earth. Water furnace geothermal heating and cooling systems use the constant temperature of the Earth as an energy source to heat and cool your home. Ross and Witmer, one of Charlotte’s premier heating and cooling firms, is a pioneer in the installation of this cutting edge technology.

“Geothermal heat pumps are able to tap into the free energy source that lies right below the Earth’s surface,” said Clay Phillips, the company president. “They are similar to ordinary heat pumps but use the ground instead of outside air to provide heating, air conditioning and, in most cases, an added benefit of free hot water.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, because these systems use the Earth’s natural heat, they are among the most efficient and comfortable heating and cooling technologies currently available. Added Phillips, “A traditional air source heat pump may achieve 175 to 250% efficiency, but geothermal heat pumps can achieve 400 to 600% efficiency…”
