With December temperatures starting to feel more like a frigid January’s, the winter of 2016-2017 is shaping up to be cold and snowy.
That meshes with the predictions of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). According to its weather.gov blog, the odds favor colder-than-normal temperatures along the northern tier of states eastward to the Great Lakes as well as above-average precipitation in this region.
What does that mean for those with an energy-efficient geothermal system? Steady, affordable comfort!
That’s because a geothermal heat pump collects heat from the ground. The ground below the frost line – where the geothermal piping is installed — maintains a steady temperature below the surface year round. As the outdoor air temperature plummets, your geothermal heat pump maintains its efficiency.
