Keeping your home cool without breaking the bank can be a tall order during a typical summer in Kilgore, Texas. If you are concerned about your utility bills or the environmental impact of your HVAC system, rest assured that you are not stuck using a traditional air conditioner. Discover how a geothermal heat pump can keep your family cool all summer long and lowering your utility bills at the same time.

Source Energy From the Ground

In Texas, the air temperature can easily exceed 100 degrees at the height of summer. Even when the outdoor temperature is sweltering, however, the underground temperature remains relatively constant at around 50 degrees.

A geothermal heat pump takes advantage of these cool temperatures by sourcing energy from underground. With this type of system, a network of pipes, called an earth loop, circulates refrigerant a few feet below the surface of your yard and relies on a ground heat exchanger to maintain a comfortable temperature indoors.

Reduce Your Environmental Impact

Cooling your home with a standard air conditioner or heat pump often means substantial energy consumption and high utility bills. With a geothermal heat pump from JD’s A/C, your system can achieve an impressive 600 percent efficiency. Even though the loop installation and a new geothermal system require an upfront investment, significant savings on your utility bill means you can recoup your savings in as little as five years while making an environmentally friendly choice.

Extend Your HVAC System’s Lifespan

Many HVAC components last for an average of just ten years, which means you likely have to budget for a new air conditioner or heat pump a few times. With a geothermal system, you can give your wallet a break and spend your hard-earned dollars on a few more desirable perks like vacations and home improvement. Geothermal heat pumps last for about 25 years, and the piping systems last for at least 50 years, substantially increasing your HVAC system’s lifespan.

Does a geothermal heat pump sound ideal for your home? Don’t wait another minute to contact the air conditioning experts at JD’s A/C to learn more about this innovative cooling technology. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call us today at (903) 759-7483.

3 Rooms That Would Benefit From a Ductless System

Ductless HVAC

When summer temperatures approach sweltering in Longview, Texas, you want every room in your home to stay cool and comfortable. Whether you’re adding on to your home or you want extra cooling power in certain rooms, find out where a ductless air conditioning system can give you the cooling efficiency you need.

Bedrooms

In many homes, the bedrooms are the furthest rooms from the core of your house. That means your HVAC system often has to work harder to cool bedrooms. At the peak of summer, sometimes your HVAC system alone just isn’t enough.

The experienced air conditioning technicians at JD’s A/C know that you need to cool off at the end of a long, hot, day. That’s why we install ductless air conditioning systems to provide targeted cooling where you need it most. With a ductless system in your bedroom, you can avoid the need to keep reducing the thermostat setting and overcooling the rest of your home just to get a cool night’s sleep.

Sunrooms

A sunroom adds valuable indoor living space to your home, but this area can be hard to keep cool when the temperatures rise. Instead of missing out on the use of your sunroom or wasting energy trying to keep it cool in the summer, give this area its own cooling system.

A ductless system is ideal for sunrooms and other sunny parts of your home that tend to be too warm, no matter what you do to keep them cool. Many of our efficient mini-split systems even come with turbo mode so you can cool your space quickly.

New Additions

Whether you’re adding a new room or a whole new wing to your house, modifying the existing ductwork can be expensive and time consuming. Rather than adding on to your HVAC system or installing a second one, rely on a ductless system instead. Installation is quick and easy, and you won’t have to worry about tackling your existing ductwork.

Ready to install a ductless system in your bedroom, sunroom, or new addition? Call the air conditioning experts at JD’s A/C at (903) 759-7483 to learn more.
