Geothermal energy is the most efficient way to cool and heat any property. There are so many great aspects of geothermal energy that provide benefits to you and the environment, however, installing a geothermal system can be a big decision. Here are some facts to help you in this process.
1. It’s Safe
Geothermal is not only safe for the environment, but it provides increased safety for people. Since there is no production of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, or other harmful gasses, there is no concern for a leak or poisoning incident.
2. It’s Renewable
A source of energy that never ends is what runs that system you would be installing. A geothermal system will give you endless cooling and heating services all thanks to the heat generated beneath the Earth’s surface. Everyone stays much more comfortable as the system continuously works, as opposed to turning off and on as the temperature changes.
3. It’s Quiet
Running a geothermal system allows for some peace and quiet. Instead of having a loud machine running outside your home, you can enjoy the sounds of nature or play some tunes without interruption. The system is about as loud as a refrigerator.
4. It Pays for Itself
While the upfront cost of installing the system can be costly, the money is often recovered in 2-5 years of having the system. There are often tax incentives to help further save you money. Many also see up to a 50 percent reduction in their utility bills.
5. It’s Long Lasting
Standard heating and cooling systems will last up to 10 years with proper care and maintenance. Indoor components of a geothermal system can last up to 25 years, while the outdoor components can last up to 50 years.
