If you’re still trying to wrap your head around it, not quite primed to choose, contemplate these focal geothermal facts:

  • Modern geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been researched and refined over the course of half a century or so.
  • Right now, there are significantly more than one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations in this country alone.
  • General confidence in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners grading the comfort, ease of use, and energy savings their geothermal systems provide higher than that of any other system they’ve had.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study discloses that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system now marketed.
  • Maintenance spending is conspicuously lower with geothermal than with common central HVAC systems chiefly because geothermal systems have relatively few moving mechanical parts and require relatively little maintenance anyway.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems can last for a respectable 30 to 50 years, whereas standard HVAC systems quite often have to be repaired or replaced after 15 years.
  • Comparing the cost of local utilities and fossil fuel to the cost of running a geothermal heating and cooling system makes it patently obvious that West Branch owners of geothermal systems often find their energy bills slashed by amounts ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are much less of an environmental threat than any fossil fuel system, giving rise, by comparison, to roughly one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
