Eight Fast Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Admittedly, 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 Burlington homeowners will vouch for that – particularly those who went with Crabbe Service for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still reviewing your options, not quite ready to move forward, let these eight focal geothermal facts percolate in your head a bit:

  • Current geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been put to the test – and acing it! – for more than 50 years.
  • Right now, there are well over one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the States alone.
  • The public’s trust in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners grading the comfort, ease of use, and energy savings their geothermal systems afford higher than that of any other system with which they’re familiar.
  • 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 available.
  • Maintenance spending is markedly lower with geothermal than with traditional central HVAC systems chiefly because geothermal systems have relatively few moving machine parts and need relatively little maintenance anyway.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems can last for a good 30 to 50 years, whereas standard HVAC systems quite often 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 clear that Burlington owners of geothermal systems often find their energy bills reduced by amounts ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are far more environmentally accommodating than any fossil fuel system, generating, by comparison, about one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
