What It Is

Benefits

Joe Shefchek - Corporate Enviromental Officer

Geothermal heat pumps offer unmatched advantages over traditional heating and cooling systems:

Environmental impact: Ground-source heat is naturally renewable and non-polluting.

Energy efficiency: A geothermal heat pump can move more than three units of heat energy for every one unit of electrical energy used to power the system.

Lower operating costs: A geothermal system can cut utility bills by 30 to 50 percent compared to conventional heating and cooling systems.

Lower maintenance costs: All equipment is protected indoors or underground.

Single system: Geothermal equipment provides both heating and cooling in one system.

Geothermal is Economical! Life span: A geothermal system can have a life expectancy of up to 30 years; ground loops are often warranted for up to 50 years.

Indoor comfort: Geothermal systems eliminate the drafts common with conventional forced-air systems.

Design flexibility: Geothermal systems can be easily and inexpensively subdivided or expanded to fit building remodeling or additions.

Safety: No dangers of gas leaks or carbon monoxide poisoning.

The benefits are magnified for commercial projects - for details, download GeoExchange: The Best Business Decision for Heating and Cooling Commercial Buildings provided by the Geothermal Heat Pump Consortium.
