Why You Should Invest in a Geothermal Heat Pump, Sylvania, Ohio

If you want to save money and reduce your carbon footprint, a geothermal heat pump may be the answer. A reputable HVAC contractor will evaluate your family’s heating and cooling needs to determine how much you’d save by relying on geothermal energy. If the savings aren't enough to convince you to make the switch, consider these additional benefits. 

3 Benefits of Using Geothermal Energy

1. Silent Operation

Geothermal systems do not require the installation of any above-ground components in the yard, which means they are virtually silent when operating. On the other hand, traditional HVAC systems will likely have a unit that is humming just outside the window, which could be bothersome to some homeowners. 

2. Extended Warranty

HVAC contractorBecause geothermal systems are located underground, they are not subject to harsh weather conditions or the wear and tear that they cause. Additionally, the ground loop that is buried in the yard will likely last for at least 50 years. For comparison, HVAC contractors typically recommend replacing a standard furnace every 10 years. 

3. Minimal Impact 

Geothermal systems are environmentally friendly. They do not release greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide or carbon monoxide, and they do not require a considerable amount of electricity to run. In other words, homeowners who rely on geothermal pumps help reduce total demand on the grid. Your HVAC contractor can estimate the total operating costs prior to installation so you know what to expect regarding utilities.
