It’s no secret that Geothermal installations are expensive up-front. So why would someone want to pay so much for a Geothermal system when they can just get a furnace or boiler for so much less up-front cost? Here are some of the many benefits current Geothermal owners enjoy…

  • While the average lifespan for a furnace or boiler is 15 years, the average lifespan for a Geothermal unit is 20-25 years, with the piping in the loop field often having lifetime warranty.
  • 95% of all geothermal heat pump owners would recommend a similar system to their friends and family according to surveys by utilities.
  • Geothermal heat pumps have an average savings of 65%-70% compared to conventional systems.
  • A house with geothermal reduces overall environmental emissions by 70% as compared to electric heat with AC.
  • The impact of currently installed geothermal heat pumps is equivalent to:
      1. Taking 1,295,000 cars off the road
      2. Planting 385 million trees
      3. Reducing U.S. reliance on imported fuels by 21.5 million barrels of crude oil per year
  • U.S. NEWS AND WORLD REPORT states that “Geothermal is one of the 50 ways to improve your life!”
  • Geothermal systems do not consume any fuel or produce significant emissions.
  • There are no unsightly or noisy outdoor (condenser) units.
  • There are no noisy “on” cycles with blasts of hot or cold air, and there are no fluctuations in temperature.
  • As a bonus, geothermal systems can produce the majority of your hot water at much higher efficiencies than ordinary methods.
  • Geothermal heat pumps are up to 470% efficient!
  • Homeowners can save over $200,000 on utility costs over a lifetime by switching to geothermal.
  • The EPA has identified geothermal systems as the most energy efficient, environmentally clean, and cost-effective space conditioning systems available!
  • Geoexchange systems represent a savings to homeowners of 30 to 70% in the heating mode and 20 to 50% in the cooling mode, compared to conventional systems.
  • Today there are now more than 1,000,000 geoexchange installations in the United States. The current use of geothermal heat pump technology has resulted in the following emissions reductions:
      1. Elimination of more than 5.8 million metric tons of CO2 annually
      2.  Elimination of more than 1.6 million metric tons of carbon equivalent annually
  • These 1,000,000 installations have also resulted in the following energy consumption reductions:
      1. Annual savings of nearly 8 billion kWh
      2. Annual savings of nearly 40 trillion Btus of fossil fuels
      3. Reduced electricity demand by more than 2.6 million kW”
