What happens when you purchase a property without natural gas? What are your alternatives? Although the use of propane in either underground or above ground tanks can be used, please consider the high costs of this energy. I would highly recommend that homebuyers of acreage property explore Geothermal Heating and Cooling systems.
The ground absorbs about half of the solar energy our planet receives. The earth is a consistent temperature just below the surface about 365 days a year.
Geothermal heating and cooling systems take advantage of consistent temperature underground using a piping system referred to as a “loop.” Water circulates in the loop to exchange heat between your home, the ground source heat pump, and the earth, providing heating, cooling, and hot water at a huge cost savings.
The Georthermal heating and cooling components look very much like a traditional furnace. Gaining in popularity, you can see this energy used in large residential homes as well as commercial facilities. The perfect application for it is on acreage ground with electricity and no natural gas.
Although initially the expense for a geothermal system is higher, the efficiency and costs savings over the long run are substantial. This green energy is readily available through companies in the Denver metropolitan area.
