Benefits of a Geothermal Heat Pump

Geothermal heat pumps are among the most efficient and comfortable heating and cooling technologies currently available. They can provide energy savings up to 70 percent more than traditional furnaces and air conditioners! Along with energy savings, there are many benefits of installing a geothermal system.

Geothermal Systems Are Convenient and Safe

One ground source heat pump can supply your heating, cooling, and water heating. The indoor units usually take up no more space than a traditional HVAC unit. Not only that, but geothermal systems don’t require open flames or flammable material, and all outdoor components are completely underground.

Geothermal Heat Pumps Are Low Maintenance

A furnace or air conditioning unit last an average of 15 years, while a geothermal heat pump can last upwards of 25 years! A geothermal system has fewer moving parts and is protected from the wear and tear of outdoor elements like rain, snow, ice, and extreme temperatures, so it requires minimal maintenance to keep it operating effectively year round.

Geothermal Heat Pumps Improve Comfort

Not only will a geothermal systems help eliminate “cold spots” in your home, but will do so while being quiet! Unlike other heating systems, a heat pump doesn’t have a noisy outdoor unit that will disrupt the peacefulness of your outdoor property. The indoor unit’s noise is comparable to a refrigerator.

Geothermal Systems Are Efficient

Geothermal heat pumps are the most efficient residential heating and air conditioning systems available, with heating efficiencies 50-70 percent higher than conventional systems in the winter and cooling efficiencies 20-40 percent higher in the summer. The heat pumps are extremely durable, and most manufacturers offer a warranty of up to 50 years for the system’s underground pipe.

Geothermal Systems Save You Money

Although installing a geothermal heating and cooling system requires a larger initial investment, you will benefit from significantly lower operating and maintenance costs for the life of the system! Most of your investment can be recouped in as quickly as three years. And you may be eligible for a federal tax credit or a utility company rebate.
