Eight Fast Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

To be sure, it’s a big step to decide on going with a geothermal heating and cooling system for your home. But it is a step up. And plenty of Dallas homeowners will affirm that – particularly those who looked to Geo-Thermal Distribution Co., LLC for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still mulling your options over, not quite psyched to choose, let these eight focal geothermal facts percolate in your head some:

  • Present-day geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been put to the test – and acing it! – for upwards of 50 years.
  • As it is, there are significantly more than one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the States alone.
  • The public’s confidence in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners grading the comfort, operational ease, and energy savings their geothermal systems afford higher than that of any other system they’ve owned.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study reveals that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system currently being marketed.
  • Maintenance costs are significantly lower with geothermal than with standard central HVAC systems essentially because geothermal systems have relatively few moving machine parts and require relatively little maintenance anyway.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems generally will last for a respectable 30 to 50 years, whereas common HVAC systems generally need repair or replacement 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 generally 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, giving rise, by comparison, to roughly one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
