- Growing and Declining the Temperature Control:-
When the thermostat is set to a single temperature throughout the day, a geothermal installation system will run most efficiently. Many homeowners are accustomed to adjusting their thermostats if they anticipate being away from home or asleep. When operating a fossil fuel furnace, this practice, known as thermostat setback, frequently saves money and energy.
When operating a geothermal installation system, this practice is counterproductive. A geothermal Installation system, unlike a furnace, is meticulously designed to meet the precise heating and cooling needs of a home. To recover from a setback period, the stressed geothermal system will most likely require the assistance of a supplemental heat source, such as an electric resistance heater.
- The temperature in the Home:-
We recommend that homeowners set their thermostats to a temperature similar to that of their previous system. It costs more to heat a home to 75°F than to heat it to 70°F, regardless of the heat source (fuel or geothermal).
- Use of Auxiliary (AUX) Heat:-
The Dandelion Geothermal Installation heat pump has three heating stages to accommodate various heating requirements: part-load, full-load, and Auxiliary (AUX) Heat. When the demand for heat is greatest, AUX Heat will automatically turn on, providing supplemental electric-resistance heat to keep your home comfortable. AUX Heat is a common and necessary component of heat pump systems, but it consumes more electricity than the other heating stages. When the outdoor temperature falls below 15°F, it most commonly activates intermittently in short runs. It is critical to maximize geothermal savings to minimize its usage.
- Electricity Costs:-
Electricity rates fluctuate, affecting payment amounts even when consumption remains relatively constant. Weather patterns, market factors, ESCO providers (if used), and so on all have an impact on supply rates. When comparing past and current electric bills, it is critical to compare kWh prices (in addition to kWh consumption).
