For Ultimate Humidity Control, Go Geothermal

What is the best HVAC system for Florida homeowners? We say ground- or water-source heat pumps. These amazingly efficient heating and cooling systems provide consistent comfort, reduce indoor humidity and are cheaper to operate compared to a standard central air system.

Benefits of Geothermal Heat Pumps

We live in the steamiest state in the country, so anything that helps control humidity should be worth considering. That’s what gives ground-source geothermal heat pumps an edge over a standard central air conditioning system.

Excellent Dehumidification

No matter how hot or cold it is outside, it’s always between 45 and 75 degrees underground. A geothermal heat pump harnesses this energy source through a series of looping pipes to cool or heat your home depending on the season. Because geothermal heat pumps have this consistent source to regulate the temperature, they’re more efficient, providing a more even temperature control throughout the day. They don’t cycle on and off as frequently as other heating and cooling appliances, helping keep humidity at bay. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, geothermal heat pumps maintain about a 50% relative indoor humidity, making it the most effective HVAC system for humid climates.

Adequate Heating

In addition to combating humidity, heat pumps are ideal for Florida homeowners because it doesn’t get terribly cold here. A heat pump isn’t the best option for people living in cooler climes -- it doesn’t provide a very intense heat -- but we enjoy moderate temperatures for much of the year, which makes a heat pump’s heating mode more than adequate.

More Affordable Cooling

It can be expensive to cool your home in Florida. Geothermal heat pumps are the most efficient heating and cooling system on the market, saving as much as 70% on electricity than a standard air-source unit. You can crank the AC and slash your energy bill.
