Eight Fast Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Admittedly, it’s a big step to move ahead with a geothermal heating and cooling system for your home. But it is a step up. And many Medina homeowners will tell you so – particularly those who signed on with Sisler Heating & Cooling, Inc. for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still mulling your options over, not quite primed to choose, let these eight fundamental geothermal facts sink in a little:

  • Current geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been vetted and perfected over the course of half a century or so.
  • To date, there are well over one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations in the United States alone.
  • Consumer happiness with geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners ranking the comfort, convenience, and energy savings their geothermal systems furnish higher than that of any other system with which they’re familiar.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study shows that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system currently sold.
  • Maintenance spending is markedly lower with geothermal than with conventional central HVAC systems chiefly because geothermal systems have very few moving machine parts and need very little maintenance to begin with.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems can keep working efficiently for a respectable 30 to 50 years, whereas standard HVAC systems quite often are in need of repair or replacement after 15 years.
  • Comparing the cost of local utilities and fossil fuel to the cost of operating a geothermal heating and cooling system makes it abundantly clear that Medina owners of geothermal systems often realize energy savings ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are far more environmentally accommodating than any fossil fuel system, giving rise, by comparison, to roughly one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
