Geothermal Heat Pump Systems use less energy
The difference in energy needed to operate a geothermal heat pump system compared to a furnace is drastic. Geothermal heat pumps also require much less energy to operate than other types of heat pumps, such as air source heat pumps. Because of their low energy usage compared to other heating and cooling systems, using a geothermal heat pump system can reduce your energy bills significantly. Their improved efficiency allows homeowners to recoup installation costs in a matter of a few years in many cases.
Geothermal Heat Pump Systems provide free hot water
A geothermal system not only keeps your indoor spaces at a comfortable temperature, it also provides hot water for your home. Your geothermal heat pump system can transfer the excess heat it creates to your hot water tank. Because the geothermal system heats your water, too, you’ll pay less for hot water year-round. Receive hundreds of gallons of free hot water each year, courtesy of your geothermal heat pump system.
Geothermal Heat Pump Systems are better for the environment
If you’re concerned about your home’s eco footprint, geothermal heat pump systems are a better choice for the environment. Geothermal systems are also incredibly efficient, as much as 400 percent on even the coldest days. Higher efficiency means less energy must be used to keep your home comfortable. Because of the lower amount of energy they require to operate, the impact on the environment from using these systems is much less than a gas or electric furnace.
