Benefits of Geothermal Construction in Commercial Construction

Here are some of the reasons why you should consider using geothermal technology in your next project.

As many businesses strive to go green, one of the alternative energy sources that you should consider for your next commercial construction in the Bay Area is geothermal energy.  Geothermal energy is energy derived from the heat that emanates from the earth and geothermal technology is the equipment that converts heat into useable energy.  Because geothermal heat is naturally produced, it is a clean, sustainable energy source.  If you are still on the fence, here are some of the reasons why you should incorporate geothermal technology into your next commercial build project.

  • Geothermal Tech Works in All Seasons

Because the equipment used to absorb the earth’s heat is buried into the ground, surface temperatures do not affect the ability to produce energy.  So, even if it feels extremely hot or freezing to you, your building’s ability to capture and generate geothermal energy will remain constant

  • Geothermal Heating and Cooling is More Efficient

Traditional heating and cooling systems take outdoor air and then warms it up or cools it down depending on your building’s temperature settings.  As outside air temperatures will fluctuate wildly depending on season and time of day, it can take a lot of energy to get the outside air to the desired temperature.  However, because geothermal energy relies on more constant temperature ranges, heating and cooling processes are much more efficient.

  • Geothermal Energy Systems are Eco-Friendly

Geothermal pumps are among the most efficient systems available today.  Not only do they produce far fewer emissions and use less gas and electricity than standard systems, but they also manage to do so while matching or exceeding the functionality of traditional heating and cooling systems.


These are some of the reasons why you should consider incorporating geothermal tech in your commercial construction in the Bay Area.  Are you looking for assistance with your next building project?  Then turn to the experts at Proforma Construction.  Serving Pleasanton and the surrounding California area, our highly trained and experienced team is ready to make your commercial construction dreams a reality.  Contact us to get started today.
