Eight Fast Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

It is, indeed, a big step to move ahead with a geothermal heating and cooling system for your home. But it is a step up. And plenty of Dexter homeowners will tell you so – especially those who went with Haley Mechanical for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still assessing your options, not quite ready to move forward, let these eight pivotal geothermal facts percolate in your head some:

  • Present-day geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been vetted and perfected 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 in this country alone.
  • Overall confidence in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners grading the comfort, ease of use, and energy savings their geothermal systems provide higher than that of any other system they’ve used.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study reveals that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system now available.
  • Maintenance costs are conspicuously lower with geothermal than with conventional 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 last for a respectable 30 to 50 years, whereas conventional 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 Dexter owners of geothermal systems typically find their energy bills lowered by amounts ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are recognized as being more environmentally responsible than any fossil fuel system, giving rise, by comparison, to almost one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
