AAA Northgate installs geothermal systems with backup power generators, a great energy efficient combination for uninterrupted home comfort in Central Illinois.
A geothermal system, or ground source heat pump, is a great way to reduce your energy costs. These renewable energy systems can provide space heating and cooling as well as domestic hot water at a fraction of the operating cost of conventional HVAC systems in Illinois.
Ground source heat pumps are often all-electric, using fans and pumps to transfer heat energy from outside to inside. Like other heat pump systems, geothermal homes use a small amount of electricity to produce a large amount of heating or cooling comfort.
Carrying out home energy performance improvements before installing a geothermal system can help lower the heating load and affect the size of the system your house requires to keep you comfortable.
Adding a backup generator to your geothermal home takes care of your household completely, not just keeping the lights on when there's a power failure, but keeping the heat on as well!
The most important piece of information you need to know when you are in the market for a backup generator is how much electrical power you will need to run your household during a power failure. Nothing is as disappointing and frustrating as purchasing an underpowered generator.
Geothermal heat pumps require more power during start up than while running. In order to choose a backup generator, you need to know the starting and running wattage of the heat pump plus the load of any other electrical device or lighting you plan to run when using the generator. Geothermal heat pumps run on 240 volts, so your generator must have 240-volt output.
Permanently installed home backup generators provide constant protection for your Peoria home by starting and stopping automatically. They sit outside and deliver power right to your home's electrical panel. Units that run on natural gas or liquid propane (LP) are fed from your existing supply and don't need a separate connection.
You may need a backup generator if you are in a remote location, or if your home is in an area that has frequent power failures. We can help you find financing for a backup generator for your home in Central Illinois.
