Geothermal Heat Pumps
Whether you are thinking about building a dream house in the future or planning ahead in considering your options for a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) replacement in , it’s worth thinking about alternative as well as conventional options.
Geothermal heating and cooling systems, while not as widely known as traditional HVAC systems, offer a clean, renewable, and an efficient way to heat, cool, and even provide hot water depending on the unit in question.
A geothermal furnace exchanges heat with the earth through a ground heat exchanger. While this may drive up the initial costs of setting up a residential geothermal heat pump or similar unit, savings crop up in the long run. In general, you can expect to recoup your investment in two to 10 years.
Depending on your needs, several different varieties of geothermal systems are available on the residential market including models that offer two-speed compressors, variable fans, and hybrid options. Don’t forget that not all geothermal HVAC systems will work with all homes. It’s always best to consult with professionals before making your final decision or before falling in love with a particular unit or system.
Finding a sustainable, efficient, and effective way to heat and cool your home can be a challenge. Fortunately, technology and developments in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) industry are making strides in this area. One solution is to invest in a heat pump for all your climate control needs.
Our Garber Heating & Air Conditioning team can provide a wealth of information about current heat pumps available today. Just like its name implies, a heat pump simply pumps warmer air between your home and the outdoors, depending on the season.
When you want additional heat during the colder months, the pump moves heat from outside to inside. When you want heat to be removed during the warmer seasons, the heat pump pushes the heat from inside to outside.
The majority of heat pumps available on the market today are air-source heat pumps. They consume less electricity than baseboard heaters and traditional furnaces, saving you money and reducing your home’s carbon footprint. Heat pumps do not create heat by burning a fuel such as wood or natural gas, which contributes to their energy efficiency and affordability.
High-efficiency heat pumps provide better dehumidification during the warmer months, giving them a leg up over conventional air conditioners.
If you want to get more information about heat pump models for your home, call Garber Heating & Air Conditioning at 309-866-3025 . Our team is ready and prepared to answer your questions. Request heat pump service online today.

Breathing is something we all take for granted but is absolutely vital to our existence moment to moment. Here in , most of us stay indoors nearly all the time, so the quality of the indoor air we breathe should be important to us.

In nearly all indoor environments, dust, off-gassing from paints and carpets, and other pollutants are present in the air we breathe. Sometimes smoke and pet dander can be added to the mix. In most heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, an air filter can remove some of these pollutants. Some homeowners may choose to have a high-efficiency HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter to remove even smaller particulates.
Indoor air quality problems may result in discomfort for you and your family or, in some cases, chronic long-term health issues like allergies and asthma. When you have one of our professionals come out and test your indoor air quality, you may discover areas that require remediation.
