Heating and cooling systems are an integral part of being comfortable in our homes. There are, however, more options than just the conventional HVAC system. One of those options is a geothermal heating and cooling system. This method can offer better efficiency for a lower cost. Read on for a more in-depth look at the benefits from the team at Allied Services, Inc.
While the upfront cost of installing a geothermal heating and cooling solution may look expensive, the return on investment is much better than a conventional system. The geothermal system will pay for itself and then some in just a few years. A geothermal system can have efficiency ratings between 300% and 500% whereas a conventional system is typically around 95%. That means drastically lower monthly utility costs.
Another piece of the return on investment is how long a geothermal heating and cooling system will last, even requiring less maintenance. Conventional systems typically last 10 to 15 years with regular maintenance. A geothermal system can last between 20 to 25 years or longer with proper maintenance.
Operating on a smaller amount of electricity and burning no fossil fuels, geothermal systems have a much more positive impact on the environment than a conventional system. The United States Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency state that geothermal systems are the most environmentally friendly way to heat and cool your home.
Unlike conventional systems, geothermal heating and cooling is much more precise in evenly distributing air throughout your home. This means no hot or cold spots. Plus, there’s no noisy outdoor unit that can potentially disturb you or your neighbors.
