What are Benefits of a Geothermal System?

Most HVAC systems have an indoor furnace and an outside air condition unit as components. The furnace is used in the winter while the air condition unit is used in the summer. The popularity of this type of heating or air conditioning system has made homeowners comfortable with it. However, that’s not the only type of heating and cooling system available.

A Dependable Option

A geothermal heating and cool system can be installed underground. This would replace the existing HVAC unit. There are many benefits to owning a geothermal system. Environmental protection, longevity, savings — these are some of the benefits of owning a geothermal system.

Geothermal systems do not use harmful fossil fuels. Instead, the system relies upon on the sun and water. It’s a clean energy solution for those concerned with the environment. The secret is the nearly constant temperatures found a few feet below the Earth’s surface. These temperatures are put to use when a water-based solution is circulated underground.

Geothermal systems have a long lifespan comparable to that of a traditional heating and cooling system. Given that part of the system is underground, it’s an added benefit that these systems are relatively low maintenance.

Lower Utility Bills

Arguably the most important benefit of a geothermal system is that it will lower a homeowner’s utility bills. It’s not uncommon for these bills to be 30-70% less expensive than those of traditional energy systems. This is reason enough for many homeowners to switch.

The price of oil and gas fluctuates constantly. Owning a geothermal system will help to stabilize the fluctuating cost of the monthly utility bill.
