Discover three ways a geothermal system gives your home’s energy efficiency a boost while reducing maintenance requirements and hassle.
Whether your HVAC system has kicked the bucket or you’re moving into your forever home, it’s time to consider the energy efficiency and reduced maintenance requirements of a geothermal system versus a standard HVAC. Here are three ways a geothermal system can save you money and make your life easier:
The primary parts of a geothermal system are underground. When living in a home for the next 15-20 years, would you rather have your HVAC neatly tucked away or right in your backyard? Neat and tidy are almost always the winners!
While the installation prices may make some homeowners want to choose a traditional system, the geothermal unit will more than pay for itself in reduced energy use and maintenance costs in the long run. In fact, you can save 10% to 15% per month on your heating and cooling. Long-lasting, energy efficient, with little overall maintenance - it’s an investment worth considering.
Geothermal heating and cooling work in a single system, so with fewer parts the likelihood of damage decreases. These heat pumps use the temperature in the ground, which stays around 50 degrees, to provide heat and cooling to your home. With the system in the ground estimated to last for 50 years, you can rest easy knowing you have a system that will last.
Now is the best time to consider switching over to a geothermal unit. Geothermal systems have been around since the 1940s. However, recent advancements are making the investment more reliable and economical. Furthermore, new installation practices are working towards reducing the overall initial cost to compete with the standard HVAC systems.
With the right team on your side to find the correctly-sized system, this investment will become the best decision for your home, energy usage and budget.
