Eight Fast Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

For sure, it’s 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 Ebensburg homeowners will affirm that – particularly those who signed on with Kupetz's Plumbing & Heating for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still assessing your options, not quite ready to choose, let these eight cardinal geothermal facts sink in a bit:

  • Modern geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been tested and perfected over the course of at least five decades or so.
  • Right now, there are significantly more than one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the United States alone.
  • General happiness with geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners proclaiming 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 reveals that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system now sold.
  • Maintenance exexpenditures are notably lower with geothermal than with common central HVAC systems primarily because geothermal systems have relatively few moving mechanical parts and need relatively little maintenance anyway.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems can keep working efficiently for a good 30 to 50 years, whereas conventional HVAC systems quite often are in need of repair or replacement after 15 years.
  • Comparing the cost of local utilities and fossil fuel to the cost of maintaining a geothermal heating and cooling system makes it patently obvious that Ebensburg owners of geothermal systems often find their energy bills lowered by amounts ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are far more environmentally friendly than any fossil fuel system, producing, by comparison, nearly one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
