THB Energy Solutions' systems are good for the environment. By either decreasing your consumption of or producing energy, our systems can greatly reduce your dependence on fossil fuels and their damaging effects on the environment. Ready to play your part in protecting the environment? Contact us now. Don't take our word for it, here are just a few of the environmental benefits of these systems according to the US Government.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
The biggest benefit of geothermal heat pumps is that they use up to 50% less energy than conventional heating or cooling systems by pulling energy from the earth itself. This energy, of course, is solar energy that is held in the soil. According to the EPA, geothermal heat pumps can reduce energy consumption—and corresponding emissions—up to 44% compared to air-source heat pumps and up to 72% compared to electric resistance heating with standard air-conditioning equipment.

Solar Hot Water Systems
Water heating can account for 14%—25% of the energy consumed in your home. A solar hot water heater can economically reduce that consumption by up to 30% by using free, renewable solar energy. According to the Department of Energy, when a solar water heater replaces an electric water heater, the electricity displaced over 20 years represents more than 50 tons of avoided carbon dioxide emissions alone. Carbon dioxide traps heat in the upper atmosphere, thus contributing to the “greenhouse effect.” Contact us now.
Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Electric Systems
According to the Department of Energy, solar electric systems—also known as photovoltaic systems—have very little impact on the environment, making them one of the cleanest power-generating technologies available. While they're operating, PV systems produce no air pollution, hazardous waste, or noise, and they require no transportable fuels. Because of these benefits, PV can play an important role in mitigating environmental problems. Ground-level air pollution has severe health and environmental effects and contributes to visibility problems in scenic areas. Traditional power sources are the largest contributor to this pollution; in contrast, solar power produces no air pollution. Contact us now.
