Geothermal heating and cooling units are very cost effective and may last much longer as conventional systems. Here’s a couple of other benefits to putting one of these geothermal heating and cooling systems at your house:
1. Cost Savings
Nearly all geothermal heating and cooling units are easily three times more efficient than fossil fuel systems. The EPA has determined geothermal may save you up to $1,500 every year. These funds may help the system pay for itself in only a few years.
2. Longer Years in Operation
Geothermal systems are likely to operate longer than commonly used heating and cooling systems, generally because they are located underground. You can anticipate your geothermal system to go on working for many years to come. Gas furnaces and electric heat pumps typically need to be replaced after 15 years.
3. No Charge for Hot Water
Geothermal generates free hot water. It can lower your power usage of hot water up to 60%. Your actual savings will be determined by the total number of occupants and the amount of hot water your family uses.
Not only does the system make hot water, in many situations it produces “more than free” hot water. This means the equipment in practical terms becomes more effective when creating hot water.
4. Linked Heating and Cooling Equipment
Geothermal heating and cooling equipment can heat and cool your residence. You won’t need an air conditioner outdoors or separate heating unit in the house, unless you dwell in a frigid climate. A split heating system is possible for parts of the country where conditions regularly drop below 32 degrees.
5. Superior Humidity Control
Geothermal retains approximately 50% relative inside humidity, causing it to be very productive in muggy areas.
6. Improved Preventive Measures
Since geothermal doesn’t rely on combustion to supply warmth, you don’t have to concern yourself with gas leaks or carbon monoxide.
7. Low Maintenance
There is a smaller amount of maintenance required with a geothermal system because there is no open air equipment. This makes it less at risk for failure throughout hot summers. Since it doesn’t rely on outdoor temperatures, no defrost controls are needed like a regular heat pump.
8. Silent Action
Geothermal is the same as anything else you buy in life. Giving a small amount right now normally says you receive a small amount in return. Well-made and appropriately connected geothermal equipment will give you years of quiet service.
