Benefits of Geothermal HVAC

•  Geothermal Technology is proven technology. Wind, solar and fuel cell technology are improving but are not yet yielding as good of a return on the initial investment as Geothermal.

•  Geothermal systems have been used for over 40 years and millions of units have been installed world-wide in commercial and residential applications.

•  Geothermal heat pumps are the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly HVAC systems available. Geothermal technology may use a water well or a series of sealed piping loops buried in the ground that exchange heat energy with the earth. These water sources create a better heat transfer medium than traditional air source systems. It is so efficient that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has stated: "Geo exchange systems are the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean and cost-effective space conditioning system available today."

•  There is a 65%+ savings of your energy bill when comparing a geothermal system to a high efficiency natural gas furnace and over 80% when comparing a geo to high efficiency propane, fuel oil or electric furnace.

•  Geothermal systems are eligible for federal tax credits (up to 30% of total cost).  Click here for link to state incentives site.

•  Geothermal Heat Pumps keep your entire house comfortable year-round.

•  A new geothermal heat pump system heats or cools on demand and provides better comfort and humidity control. Systems can be easily adapted to zoned systems, providing even greater comfort year-round.

•  A geothermal system can be used to provide free hot water during summer cooling months and during the winter months heat water with all the same efficiencies as the geothermal heating system.

•  Geothermal heat pumps are placed in a basement, garage or utility room. This helps reduce noise, improves the look of your home and leads to longer system life.

•  With indoor installation eliminating exposure to the elements, your new system lasts longer than traditional heat-pump & A/C systems that are outdoors.

•  No fossil fuel, no site emissions, no outdoor units, no flame.
