Geothermal Heat Pump Installation in Bucks County PA

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Last week, Carney Plumbing, Heating and Cooling completed a geothermal heat pump installation for another Bucks County customer who was concerned with escalating energy costs.  The homeowners, who just moved into the home last year decided to replace their practically brand new propane furnaces and central air conditioning systems with two energy saving geothermal heat pump systems.  The installation of the geothermal systems took place over a four day period and included a zoning system on one of the geothermal systems to provide independent control of temperature in designated rooms and a desuperheater on the other system to drastically reduce the cost to provide hot water for the home – in fact, hot water is provided absolutely free when the geothermal systems are operating in air conditioning mode!

In addition to the geothermal heat pump systems, Consumer Reports’ top rated whole house air purification systems were installed with each system in order to provide ultra clean air to alleviate dust build up and remove allergens from the home.

Because of the extremely high levels of energy efficiency provided by these geothermal heat pumps, this homeowner was eligible for thousands of dollars in utility based rebates as well as a 30% Federal Tax Credit to help pay for the installation.

Geothermal heat pump systems provide optimal comfort and drastically reduce energy consumption.
