Eight Fast Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

No two ways about it, 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 Elizabethtown homeowners will say so – especially those who engaged Dever Enterprises for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still trying to wrap your head around it, not quite psyched to choose, chew on these essential geothermal facts:

  • Modern geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been put to the test – and acing it! – for more than 50 years.
  • As it is, there are considerably more than one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations in this country alone.
  • Consumer trust in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners grading the comfort, operational ease, and energy savings their geothermal systems furnish higher than that of any other system they’ve owned.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study shows that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system currently being marketed.
  • Maintenance spending is markedly lower with geothermal than with common central HVAC systems primarily because geothermal systems have relatively few moving mechanisms and need relatively little maintenance anyway.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems can keep working efficiently for a good 30 to 50 years, whereas common 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 abundantly clear that Elizabethtown owners of geothermal systems generally see their energy bills slashed by amounts ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are recognized as being more environmentally accommodating than any fossil fuel system, giving rise, by comparison, to almost one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
