In fact, a typical 2000 square foot home can be heated and cooled for as little as $1 per day! In addition these systems can supplement your conventional water heater saving up to 30% of hot water costs per year. Geothermal systems use small amounts of electricity to transfer heat to and from the ground to your home. On average, it can produce four units of energy for every unit of electricity used to power the system.
Geothermal is recognized by the US Environmental Protection Agency as the most environmentally safe, cost effective heating and cooling system on the market. Installing a geothermal system is equivalent to planting 750 trees or taking 2 cars off the road.
Geothermal systems have a higher installation cost when compared to the conventional systems because of the buried loop in the ground. Some homeowners view the system as being too expensive until they understand that the system will provide cheaper utility bills and annual maintenance costs.
When properly installed, a geothermal system requires little or no maintenance beyond periodic checks and filter changes. Equipment life is prolonged since the system is located inside and away from the outdoors where the climate will vary. These systems should last more than 20 years if properly maintained.
Geothermal units do not use fuels such as natural gas or propane. The source of energy is used from the ground.
