Eight Fast Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

It is, indeed, a big step to endorse the installation of a geothermal heating and cooling system for your home. But it is a step up. And many Van Buren homeowners will say so – especially those who turned to American Energy Guard for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still reviewing your options, not quite ready to move forward, give these geothermal facts a whirl:

  • Modern geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been tried and perfected over the course of half a century or so.
  • To date, there are well over one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the United States alone.
  • The public’s confidence in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners rating the comfort, operational ease, and energy savings their geothermal systems afford higher than that of any other system with which they’re familiar.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study shows that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system currently available.
  • Maintenance exexpenditures are remarkably lower with geothermal than with common central HVAC systems primarily because geothermal systems have so few moving machine parts and need so little maintenance in the first place.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems can hold up for a respectable 30 to 50 years, whereas standard HVAC systems quite often have to be repaired or replaced after 15 years.
  • Comparing the cost of local utilities and fossil fuel to the cost of maintaining a geothermal heating and cooling system shows that Van Buren owners of geothermal systems typically realize energy savings ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are much more environmentally responsible than any fossil fuel system, giving rise, by comparison, to almost one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
