Geothermal heating and cooling units are very cost effective and could possibly operate much longer as conventional systems. Here’s a couple of other advantages to installing one of these geothermal systems at your residence:
1. Utility Savings
Nearly all units are easily three times better than fossil fuel systems. The EPA has determined geothermal may save you nearly $1,500 annually. These funds could help the geothermal system pay for itself in just a few years.
2. Extended Years in Operation
Geothermal systems are likely to operate longer than commonly used systems, mainly since they are located underground. You can look forward to your geothermal system to continue operating for a very long period of time. Heating equipment will typically want to be removed after 15 years.
3. No Charge for Hot Water
Geothermal creates no-cost hot water. It can reduce your energy use of hot water up to 60%. Your actual savings will be based on the number of people living in your home and what quantity of hot water your family consumes.
Not only does the system make hot water, in various cases it produces “more than free” hot water. This means the geothermal system actually becomes more efficient when generating hot water.
4. Joined Heating and Cooling Equipment
A system can heat and cool your residence. You won’t desire an AC out-of-doors or single heating unit indoors, unless you live in a chilly climate. A split heating system is possible for regions where weather conditions frequently fall to a bitterly cold level.
5. Improved Dampness Management
Geothermal maintains about 50% relative indoor humidity, causing it to be very beneficial in damp rooms.
6. Improved Safety
Since geothermal doesn’t rely on combustion to furnish heat, you don’t need to concern yourself with gas leaks or carbon monoxide.
7. Low Maintenance
There is a smaller amount of servicing involved with a geothermal system because there is no open air unit. This makes it less at risk for malfunction throughout sultry summers. Since it doesn’t hinge on external weather, no defrost controls are needed as in the case of a regular heat pump.
8. Soundless Operation
Geothermal is the same as anything else you buy in life. Spending a little right now generally indicates you receive a small amount in return. Well-built and correctly connected geothermal units will provide you a lifetime of quiet performance.
