3 Ways Geothermal Heat Pumps Protect the Environment, Cincinnati, Ohio

If you live in a part of the world that experiences harsh winters, you might wonder what you can do to keep your family warm and comfortable without burning through your budget. Fortunately, geothermal heat pumps offer a long list of benefits for homeowners, including protecting the world we live in. Here are three ways geothermal heat pumps protect the environment. 

Slashing Energy Usage

One of the most difficult things about heating and cooling your home is the fact that most HVAC systems rely on a steady stream of power, driving up your energy costs. However, because geothermal heat pumps harness the even temperature of the soil underneath your home, they are incredibly energy efficient. In fact, heat pumps are 75% more efficient than oil furnaces and 43% more efficient than most air conditioners when the pump is set to the cooling mode. 

Eliminating the Need for Fossil Fuels

These energy-friendly systems have coolant lines that absorb the heat from the ground during the winter and the cold from the ground in the summer, protecting your indoor and outdoor air quality.  

Keeping Equipment Out of Landfills

Another huge benefit of geothermal heat pumps is that they offer an incredibly long life span, lasting as long as 20 years with proper care and maintenance. In addition to reducing the amount of time you will spend troubleshooting your system, this benefit also keeps equipment out of landfills.
