Eight Fast Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Certainly, it’s a big step to endorse the installation of a geothermal heating and cooling system for your home. But it is a step up. And many Green Bay homeowners will attest to that – particularly those who turned to Van's Refrigeration for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still trying to wrap your head around it, not quite psyched to move forward, let these eight cardinal geothermal facts sink in a bit:

  • Present-day geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been put to the test – and acing it! – for upwards of 50 years.
  • To date, there are well over one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the United States alone.
  • The public’s satisfaction with geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners proclaiming the comfort, operational ease, and energy savings their geothermal systems furnish higher than that of any other system with which they’re familiar.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study discloses that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system now marketed.
  • Maintenance exexpenditures are remarkably lower with geothermal than with conventional central HVAC systems essentially because geothermal systems have relatively few moving mechanical parts and require relatively little maintenance anyway.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems normally will keep performing admirably for a good 30 to 50 years, whereas traditional HVAC systems quite often need repair or replacement after 15 years.
  • Comparing the cost of local utilities and fossil fuel to the cost of running a geothermal heating and cooling system shows that Green Bay owners of geothermal systems often see a lowering of their energy bills ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are far less of an environmental threat than any fossil fuel system, giving rise, by comparison, to roughly one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
