Eight Fast Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Yes, indeed, it’s a big step to decide on going with a geothermal heating and cooling system for your home. But it is a step up. And many Denver homeowners will affirm that – particularly those who went with WaterFurnace for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still trying to wrap your head around it, not quite psyched to move forward, let these eight fundamental geothermal facts sink in some:

  • Present-day geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been worked and reworked, hammered and honed over the course of half a century or so.
  • As it is, there are considerably more than one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the United States alone.
  • General trust in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners grading the comfort, operational ease, and energy savings their geothermal systems provide higher than that of any other system with which they’re familiar.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study discloses that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system currently sold.
  • Maintenance exexpenditures are remarkably lower with geothermal than with common central HVAC systems chiefly because geothermal systems have relatively few moving mechanisms and need relatively little maintenance anyway.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems normally will continue working for a good 30 to 50 years, whereas standard HVAC systems generally are in need of repair or replacement after 15 years.
  • Comparing the cost of local utilities and fossil fuel to the cost of running a geothermal heating and cooling system shows that Denver owners of geothermal systems typically realize energy savings ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are have a well-deserved reputation for being more environmentally friendly than any fossil fuel system, giving rise, by comparison, to roughly one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
