Geothermal Heating/Cooling: Why It's a Good Idea

Heating and cooling systems are energy-intensive. Heat pumps are more energy-efficient than other heating and cooling methods, using less energy to keep your home cool. Geothermal heating and cooling use heat to regulate temperature. The heat is brought inside the home by the Earth's warmth in the winter and removed from the home during the summer. This process can provide long-term savings and has several benefits.

Geothermal Heat Pumps Are Less Expensive To Operate

Although geothermal heating/cooling systems require electricity for operation, it is considerably less than conventional HVAC systems. Your geothermal heating and cooling system will operate at a lower cost in summer and winter. You can keep your home comfortable, and you'll be able to make immediate savings on your heating or cooling bills. An estimated 20-50% savings on cooling and 30-60% for heating your home during the lifetime of a geothermal heater can be achieved by installing and using one.

Carbon Emissions Reduced by Geothermal Heat Pumps

Combustion furnaces heat via combustion using fuels such as oil and gas. The process of burning produces many byproducts including greenhouse gases. Geothermal heating/cooling systems do away with combustion during heating. This results in a reduction of greenhouse gases as well as carbon emissions. Your geothermal heat pumps may still burn fuel, but the less energy needed to operate them will allow you to live more sustainably.

Geothermal heat pumps are versatile and durable

Geothermal heat pumps can heat and cool your house for maximum comfort year-round. Installing a geothermal heating/cooling unit in your home will allow you to replace both your furnace AND your air conditioner using one appliance. As you will only have one HVAC system that needs to be maintained over the years this can reduce HVAC maintenance and repair costs. Additionally, geothermal cooling and heating systems have a much longer lifespan than other types of heating and cooling equipment. While an air conditioner and furnace can last between 10 and 15 years, geothermal heat pumps last 25 to 30 years before needing replacement. Your geothermal cooling and heating system’s ground loop section will last 50 to 50 years without needing replacement.
