Top 5 Benefits of Geothermal Energy Systems

Believe it or not, there is a heating and cooling system that can keep you comfortable year round without spiking your energy bill. Known as geothermal systems, these can cut your electricity bill by up to 50% and all while preserving precious resources. Here are some more reasons why you should install a geothermal system in your home:

It’s environment-friendly

Geothermal is known as the most environment-friendly alternative to traditional heating and cooling systems. It’s almost equal to planting 700 trees or taking a couple of cars off the road. Is it any wonder why its energy bill is so low? It’s a self-sustainable system that does not require much in maintenance.

Get positive cash flow

Even though these systems are a bit more expensive to install than traditional models, they end up paying for themselves in the long run. The energy costs are cheaper in comparison and this includes maintenance costs as well. At most your geothermal system will pay for itself in 3 to 5 years at least. That will give you a positive cash flow that traditional HVAC systems cannot even if they are cheaper to install.

It’s durable and sustainable

Compared to typical heating and cooling systems, geothermal systems do not require much in the name of maintenance. That’s understandable seeing that they have little to no mechanical features that might need to be repaired. All of the components are protected from the elements and thieves since the pipes are buried in the ground. These come with a warranty that can last up to 50 years.

It’s almost maintenance-free

If the geothermal system is installed properly, it should not require much in the name of maintenance. The systems that are installed are easy to access as well since they are located within the property. This makes maintenance easy and hassle-free.

It’s flexible

Geothermal systems such as heat pumps are the only things you need to heat and cool water as well as the space you are living in. You can get hot water at little to no energy cost and the heat can also be used to the pool. The system does not make any noise inside or out and the hardware does not need much space either.

A geothermal system takes up less space than a heating or cooling unit such as an air conditioner and furnace. In other words, the equipment can be scaled down to size to fit your needs and the space you need it for. Installing one will ensure your home remains comfortable irrespective of season and without increasing your energy bill.
