Geothermal Air Conditioning in Lee’s Summit
We have all become more conscious of our energy use and the cost it has, from the impact on your wallet to the impact on the environment. Alternative sources for heating and cooling our homes and businesses have become very popular. One option that is quieter, more energy-efficient, and powered by energy stored in the ground is a geothermal cooling system also called geothermal air-conditioning.

The Advantages of Geothermal Cooling Systems at a Glance
Geothermal air conditioning offers several benefits. They are most easily installed on new construction, but existing properties can be converted to this energy source. The upfront cost of installing a new geothermal heating and cooling system is usually recouped in savings in as early as 5 years.
Extremely Durable and Low Maintenance
Geothermal air conditioning systems are built for long-term use and, once installed, require very little annual maintenance. The most common involves the heat pump, which is easily serviced when needed. Because a large portion of the system is underground, care and innovation are taken to use materials to create long-lasting geothermal cooling systems to maximize their value.
One of the Most Energy Efficient Systems Available
A benefit that should not be overlooked is how efficient geothermal systems are. By utilizing the ever-present energy in the ground without burning fossil fuels, you will be using a resource that is easily renewable and constant.
Cost Effective & Environmentally Friendly
These benefits add up to a two-fold positive result! Geothermal cooling, especially as part of a combined geothermal heating and cooling system, is energy efficient, reduces your energy use and cost, and reduces carbon emissions caused by burning fossil fuels.
How Geothermal AC Systems Work
Similar to how a canal moves water to where it’s needed, a geothermal cooling system moves heat from one location to another. Using a heat exchange system, a closed loop of tubing or pipe is buried in the ground (the ‘geo’ part of geothermal). With a heat pump, you can collect the heat from inside your home and disperse it out into the ground surrounding your property. The average temperature between 4-6 feet below the surface stays at a steady temperature all year-round and your geothermal heating and cooling system is the perfect way to make use of it.
