Geothermal Heating and Cooling

What are the Benefits of Geothermal1?

Geothermal is environmentally-friendly

Savings

Geothermal reduces your home heating and cooling costs by as much as 70 percent, particularly for larger homes and also for homes currently heated with oil, electric or propane.

Using geothermal for heating and cooling changes the way you pay for energy. Because you are taking advantage of the natural heating (or cooling) capacity of the earth, on your own property, you are drawing upon a resource that is essentially free.

Comfort

A geothermal system keeps your home at a steady room temperature so you're comfortable all the time. Conventional systems are set up to switch on with a burst of heat when the temperature goes below what the thermostat is set at and switch off when that temperature is reached. With geothermal, a lower temperature is constantly providing heat. The result: fewer bursts with little noise and more comfort.

New way of thinking

Geothermal is a practical solution based on the simple principle of using the earth as an energy source. A geothermal system simply taps into that resource that's abundant and free.

No more visits by propane or oil trucks. You'll only need electricity to run the geothermal unit.

Geothermal is quiet

There's no combustion or forced-flame noise. In winter, geothermal pumps quietly circulate fluid through the heat exchanger. The need for a separate outside air conditioning unit is eliminated, so your backyard or patio remains peaceful.

Long lasting

Geothermal units have a life expectancy of approximately 25 years.

Environmentally-friendly

More than two thirds of the energy delivered to your home by geothermal is renewable solar energy stored in the ground. This is good for the environment because there are virtually no toxic emissions. Installing a geothermal system in an average-sized home is equal to removing two cars off the road or planting an acre of trees.
