Geothermal pumps are becoming more popular as a heating and cooling system option. With the upfront costs, you may wonder if it is worth it. The following advantages will make it clear that geothermal heating and cooling, is in fact worth every penny.
The entire system runs quietly. There are no outdoor condensing units and the units indoors are quiet. This can be a relief from traditional HVAC systems.
The safety of your home is always a priority. There is no combustion involved with these systems, therefore, no concern. Carbon monoxide poisoning is also not a worry for families with geothermal heating and cooling systems.
Comfortable Air Quality
When it comes to your indoor air quality, you deserve comfort. Geothermal heat pumps purify the air and dehumidify, improving your overall indoor air quality. If you have allergy sufferers in your home, this type of system is very advantageous.
Homeowners have to think about affordability. The initial cost of a geothermal heat pump can be higher than more traditional options. However, what makes the pump worth it, is the money you will save over time. The lower operating costs will more than make up for it. In fact, these pumps could end up paying for themselves in as little as three years.
In addition to the cost savings after the initial installation, you will have your geothermal pump for at least 10 to 15 years. As long as you keep up with regular maintenance, they can last you over a decade. Part of what keeps them running so long is the fact that they are underground and not subject to the same elements as other systems.
When it comes to environmentally friendly ways to heat and cool your home, geothermal is one of the top ways to do so. In fact, it does not produce any carbon monoxide or greenhouse gases. It will not add to your carbon footprint and uses very little electricity over the course of the year.
