Is your current HVAC system on its last leg? The opportunity to upgrade your system is the perfect time to consider other options that may be available to you. Instead of just replacing your heating and cooling system with another standard model, why not consider a geothermal HVAC system? Our team at Allied Services, Inc. will gladly give you three reasons why geothermal heating and cooling is worth the investment.
1. Increase Energy Efficiency
In our opinion, the best reason to switch to a geothermal HVAC system is that they are incredibly energy-efficient. They can be up to four times more efficient than a standard heating and cooling system, which translates to as much as 70% savings in energy costs! So, not only is a geothermal system good for your wallet, but it’s also great for the environment! Because geothermal systems tap into the sun’s energy, it means the energy is clean, completely renewable, and stable!
2. Stable Temperatures
Speaking of stable temperatures, only geothermal systems can consistently produce energy using a renewable energy source in any type of conditions—cold, hot, windy, calm, day, or night. Other environmentally-friendly heating and cooling systems are only effective under the right circumstances. For example, solar-powered systems can only produce during daylight hours, and wind-powered systems are only effective during high-wind periods.
3. Low Maintenance
Finally, geothermal heating and cooling systems are also some of the longest-lasting HVAC systems available. Typical HVAC systems will last around 10 years or so with proper maintenance, while a geothermal system can last up to 25 years! Even better, after 25 years, typically only the heat pump needs to be replaced. The pipe system under your home can last up to 50 years!
