Is Geothermal Right for You?
While geothermal heat pumps are among the most environmentally friendly, energy-efficient models on the market today, they aren’t a perfect fit for every home. Geothermal systems are best suited for those with land or immediate access to a body of water, such as a lake or pond. They aren’t typically suited for neighborhoods with homes placed close together. Although installation costs around $18,000 to $20,000 for an average size home, geothermal can reduce energy costs significantly and may qualify a homeowner for a 30 percent tax credit
Why Choose A Geothermal Heat Pump?
Geothermal systems (also called ground source heat pumps) offer the most efficient and Eco-friendly heating and cooling technology on the market. Many of our customers see their utility bills slashed by up to 70 percent after a ground source heat pump installation. Geothermal systems extract warmth and coolness from below the ground and use it to heat and cool your home. Because temperatures are more stable below-ground than they are in the air, ground source heat pumps can heat and cool your home much more economically than air source heat pumps. Another benefit of these systems is that, unlike air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps do not need to be paired with a furnace to generate sufficient indoor heat during the winter months.
How Can I Benefit From A Ground Source Heat Pump Installation?
Because they are ultra-efficient, ground source heat pumps add value to any property on which they are installed. Better yet, ground source systems are long-lasting. You can expect a ground source heat pump to last up to 25 years or longer, which is twice as long as the average lifespan of an air source heat pump. Ground source systems are very easy to maintain, and they are widely recognized as a “green” alternative to standard heating and cooling systems because they are powered by a renewable energy source.
When Should I Call For Geothermal Repair?
Ground source heat pumps are durable and built to last. However, as with all mechanical equipment, problems can develop that require prompt professional attention. The most important thing is that you become familiar with warning signs that tell you when it’s time to schedule service and repair.
- Utility bills are increasing. Because ground source heat pumps are so efficient, unexplained spikes in monthly utility bills can mean that the system needs professional attention.
- There are unexplained noises. Geothermal systems are very quiet. If you notice unusual or irregular noises, have the unit serviced as soon as possible.
- The air filters are routinely clogged. Although the air filters on your system are designed to trap airborne particles, the filter should not be full of debris on a weekly basis.
