Geothermal systems offer many advantages over other heating & cooling options, ranging from better efficiency and lower operating costs to superior comfort and environmental benefits. Here are some of the reasons you should consider getting a geothermal system for your home:
|Lower Operating Costs
Geothermal systems can save you up to 70% on your monthly heating, cooling and hot water bills. While modern conventional systems can reach 95% efficiency, Geothermal systems have efficiency ratings of 300 to 500%!
|Positive Return On Investment (ROI)
It’s easy to focus too much on the initial upfront costs and overlook the long term ROI. When you consider annual savings from substantially lower operating costs, the longer lifespan of the equipment, along with the tax credits and rebates you get upfront, a geothermal can start to make sense from an investment perspective. For example, it’s possible to see a 10% return on your money (see the example how)
|Free Hot Water
Geothermal systems have the capability of capturing reclaimed heat during heating and cooling modes and using it to heat domestic water, reducing the water heating cost of a four-person household by 50 to 60 percent.
Geothermal systems are designed and constructed for quiet operation. Unlike ordinary air conditioners or heat pumps, there’s no noisy outdoor unit to disturb your outside environment or your neighbors.
