Eight Fast Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

It is, indeed, a big step committing to a geothermal heating and cooling system for your home. But it is a step up. And many Williamsport homeowners will tell you so – especially those who engaged Hepler Geothermal Inc. for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still trying to wrap your head around it, not quite psyched to move forward, give these geothermal facts a spin:

  • Modern geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been put to the test – and acing it! – for better than 50 years.
  • As it happens, there are considerably more than one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations in this country alone.
  • Overall trust in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners rating the comfort, ease of use, and energy savings their geothermal systems provide higher than that of any other system they’ve had.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study shows that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system being sold today.
  • Maintenance costs are conspicuously lower with geothermal than with common central HVAC systems primarily because geothermal systems have relatively few moving mechanical parts and require relatively little maintenance anyway.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems can last for a respectable 30 to 50 years, whereas standard HVAC systems generally must be repaired or replaced after 15 years.
  • Comparing the cost of local utilities and fossil fuel to the cost of operating a geothermal heating and cooling system makes it abundantly clear that Williamsport owners of geothermal systems generally realize energy savings ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are far more environmentally friendly than any fossil fuel system, giving rise, by comparison, to roughly one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
