What is a geothermal system?

“Geothermal” literally means “heat of the earth.” With a geothermal system, a series of pipes is buried under the ground’s surface to tap into the earth’s natural heat. The underground heat source that can be found in any backyard is enough to cover approximately 10 times the amount of energy required during any season. This unending resource is constantly recharged by the sun and the surrounding earth, so you never have to worry about waning resources. 

What are the benefits of using a geothermal system?

There are numerous benefits to using a geothermal system versus a traditional heating or cooling system, including:

  • Cost-efficiency: The most efficient gas furnace operates at about 94% efficiency. Geothermal systems, on the other hand, can deliver four units of energy for every single unit of electrical energy used, leading to an efficiency rating of 400%. For most households, the result of this extraordinary energy efficiency is a 60% savings in their energy bill.
  • Tax credit:Homeowners can get an instant 30% tax credit just for using geothermal systems. Find out more by visiting www.dsireusa.org.
  • Environmental Friendliness: The Department of Energy and the EPA have classified geothermal systems as the most environmentally friendly heating and cooling options available. Geothermal systems don’t emit the carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, or other greenhouse gases that contribute to air pollution.
  • Noise control: Geothermal units don’t contain the noisy outdoor units that plague users of typical air conditioning or heating systems. Geothermal systems are designed with a “whisper quiet” technology that is similar to that of modern refrigerators.
  • Reliability:Because geothermal systems are installed indoors, they are not exposed to possible damage from ice, hail, debris, or extreme temperatures.
  • Safety: Geothermal systems don’t require the use of natural gas, propane, or oil, so there’s no need to worry about combustion, flames, fumes, or carbon monoxide leaks.
  • Comfort: Geothermal systems deliver an even flow of conditioned air throughout homes. Gone are the hot and cool blasts that homeowners often experience when using a traditional heating or cooling system.
