Geothermal & Solar

White Oak Modular is one of the leading builders of energy-efficient homes in the United States.  White Oak believes it's time for homeowners to become as energy independent as possible.  We are proficient in the installation of solar electric panels to power your home and geothermal heating & cooling systems.  When combining both solar and geothermal, you are greatly reducing the energy requirements of your new home.  Most of our customers who install both solar and geothermal systems have free heating and cooling.  The solar panels generate all of the electricity needed to run the geothermal system, which means you will never pay a dime to heat or cool your new home.  Simply amazing!  During sunny days, you will generate more electricity than you are using, and your electric meter will be going backwards.  You only pay for the net difference between the electricity you generate and the electricity you use.

Geothermal heating & cooling systems use the 56 degree temperature of the earth to heat or cool your home, using a fraction of the energy used by a conventional system.  While conventional furnaces and boilers burn fuel to generate heat, geothermal systems use electricity to simply move heat from the earth into your home during the winter, and transferring it out of your home and back into the ground during the summer.  The most efficient fuel-burning heater can reach efficiencies around 95%, but a geothermal heating system can move up to 4 units of heat for every unit of electricity needed to power the system, resulting in a practical equivalence of over 400% efficiency.
