Is Geothermal Energy Right for You?, Shell Lake, Wisconsin

A geothermal energy system is the most energy-efficient apparatus that can heat and cool a home. After a professional well drilling team ensures the soil around your home is adequate for this system, you can enjoy a myriad of benefits. The guide below can help you determine whether this cost-efficient system is a good fit for your home. 

What Is Geothermal Energy?

geothermalAnchored below your home, geothermal systems generate extra heat from the earth and transfer it into your house. The energy travels through a lengthy pipe system where it reaches a heat exchanger that powers both furnaces and air conditioners. Since the energy is found and not created, these units are more efficient than any other available alternative. In addition to its low utility costs, geothermal energy also makes little to no noise—since there is no fan or compressor—and you’ll be investing in a sustainable energy source that doesn’t take any toll on the environment. 

Does It Make Sense For You?

Geothermal systems have a higher price tag than other systems. You’ll financially make the difference back—and more—over the years on the investment. Prices range from $10,000 to $30,000. For many homeowners, the long-term savings are worth the initial payment. Another factor to weigh is the geology under your home. Geothermal systems can only work in certain soil environments, so you’ll need to start with an inspection to see if your property is a good candidate. Maintenance costs for this system are low, as you’ll only need to change the filter once every season.
