Geothermal heating systems are becoming more and more common for home and business owners. Are they worth the hype? What exactly do they do? We are here to answer all of your questions to help you decide if a geothermal system is the right choice for you.
- What is it? A geothermal heat pump is a heating and cooling system that transfers heat from the ground to your home. This is done via underground pipes filled with water or antifreeze, and you can control temperatures by pumping heat into or out of your home.
- What are the benefits? There are many benefits of obtaining geothermal services. Because the system uses the ground to move existing heat, it is extremely energy efficient. This means it can save you a significant amount of money on your monthly heating bill. It eliminates any air quality issues inside your home and is also much quieter than other systems. A geothermal heating system is very low maintenance, and the ground pipes can last up to 50 years.
- Why doesn’t everybody do it? The main reason geothermal services aren’t the most common heating system is because of the cost. It is pretty expensive to install and requires quite a bit of work on your home and yard. It is much easier to install on a new home build, so the costs are often lower in that circumstance. However, if you are planning to live in your home long term, you can recoup your costs through energy savings over time. In the right situation, geothermal services can be a great investment for you.
