The Truth About Geothermal Systems
When you're researching your choices for a new heating and cooling system for your home, you'll want to invest in a heating and cooling system that is built to be durable, reliable, and is very efficient. A geothermal heat pump system could be the solution that you have been looking for.
Here is the truth about geothermal systems:
Is a geothermal system considered a good investment?
Similar to any system, there will be some pros and cons. The most challenging thing for some people to get past about a geothermal system is the upfront cost for the installation. There are two ways to take advantage of the earth's energy, with an open loop or closed loop. An open loop system pumps use water from a water source like a pond, lake, or well and returns it to the water source or an injection well. A closed loop system takes advantage of a grid of pipes to pump heat transfer fluid through an underground horizontal or vertical circuit of piping between the ground and the building. Both types of loop installations will require a lot of time because everything needs to roughed in. However, the truth is that the investment will pay for itself over time in energy savings.
Is a Geothermal Heat Pump Worth It?
The answer is yes because of all the features and benefits that you will receive. A geothermal system can be 300% or more efficient than a high-efficiency furnace or central system. There are also environmental benefits using a geothermal system because it reduces your carbon footprint by using renewable energy. When you replace a fossil fuel system with a geothermal system, cut your household energy emissions by 50%, the equivalent of taking four cars off the road. The lower consumption of electricity and increased efficiency make geothermal systems a much better cost-effective option in the long run. Geothermal systems eliminate indoor temperature swings and humidity changes that often occur with traditional systems. Also, the occasional odour caused by the combustion of fossil fuel will be eliminated. Furthermore, geothermal units have a life expectancy of at least 20 years, have low maintenance costs, and are quiet.
