Eight Fast Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Admittedly, it’s a big step to move ahead with a geothermal heating and cooling system for your home. But it is a step up. And plenty of Beatrice homeowners will vouch for that – especially those who engaged Noakes Heating & Air for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still mulling your options over, not quite primed to move forward, give these geothermal facts a spin:

  • Present-day geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been researched and refined over the course of at least five decades or so.
  • As it stands, there are well over one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations in the United States alone.
  • General happiness with geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners rating the comfort, operational ease, and energy savings their geothermal systems afford higher than that of any other system they’ve owned.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study reveals that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system now marketed.
  • Maintenance costs are remarkably lower with geothermal than with traditional central HVAC systems mostly because geothermal systems have relatively few moving mechanical parts and require relatively little maintenance anyway.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems normally will continue working for a good 30 to 50 years, whereas standard HVAC systems quite often have to 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 clear that Beatrice owners of geothermal systems generally find their energy bills cut by amounts ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are far less of an environmental challenge than any fossil fuel system, giving rise, by comparison, to about one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
