The Benefits of a Geothermal System
While the initial investment for a Geothermal System is higher, you will save over the years with fewer maintenance costs and much lower operating cost. Since there are fewer parts to go bad, a geothermal system can easily last 25-50 years. Considering that heating and cooling is one of your homes largest energy expenses, having a geothermal system can really rack up savings in the long run.
Like a traditional forced air furnace or central air-conditioning unit, a geothermal system uses ductwork. Unlike these traditional systems, a geothermal system helps maintain humidity. Plus, they are nearly silent when operating.
Since geothermal systems use so much less energy, they have a much smaller impact on the environment. Currently, nearly 63% of America’s energy is produced using fossil fuels that emit greenhouse gases. Geothermal systems gain 4 times the energy compared to energy cost put in from the ground. On the other hand, traditional systems actually lose energy. This saves you money and saves the Earth, too. A true win-win.
Can Be Installed Almost Anywhere
Whether you are replacing an old unit or starting from scratch, a geothermal system may be right for your home or business.
