Geothermal Heat Pumps by Treat’s Heating & Cooling

The Geothermal heat pump is becoming a popular choice for those in the market for a new heating and cooling system.  Some may wonder what the difference between a geothermal heat pump and a traditional heat pump is.

In terms of efficiency, the geothermal heat pump performs better than any of the conventional heating methods, as it has no outdoor unit so it can’t be vandalized or affected by the weather conditions outside.  Because this equipment does not reply on any type of fuel, there is no danger of gas leaks or carbon monoxide.

Your energy bills will decrease significantly because the heating and cooling are brought from the ground, not from sources of power like an electric or gas furnace.  The upfront cost of these units will generally be more but once it is installed, you will make up for the cost with your lower energy bills over time.

If your system is installed correctly, you should very little maintenance costs throughout the year and if the system is maintained properly, it can last 20 years or more.  Other gas fuels equipment must have maintenance at least every year for proper operation.
