  • To date, there are significantly more than one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations in the United States alone.

  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study shows that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system now marketed.
  • Maintenance expenses are remarkably lower with geothermal than with standard central HVAC systems essentially because geothermal systems have so few moving mechanisms and require so little maintenance anyway.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems generally will last for a respectable 30 to 50 years, whereas conventional HVAC systems generally must be repaired or replaced after 15 years.
  • Comparing the cost of local utilities and fossil fuel to the cost of running a geothermal heating and cooling system makes it patently obvious that Dallas owners of geothermal systems often see a reduction in their energy bills ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are far less of an environmental challenge than any fossil fuel system, generating, by comparison, almost one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
