We understand that when it comes to choosing an air conditioning system—or a heater—for your home, that you want to make sure you have a system that will best serve your living space and your specific needs. There have been numerous advances in recent decades that make today’s HVAC systems far more superior than those of the past.
However, different models do have different benefits, and what’s right for one home might not be right for yours. One fantastic option that we do urge you to consider though is the geothermal heating and cooling system. Installing this type of system is more accessible than ever before, but that’s not the only reason you should consider a geothermal cooling system.
We’ve shared some benefits below to show you just how geothermal systems can be superior to other air conditioner choices.
Geothermal heat pumps work three to six times more efficiently than a conventional heat pump! This statistic, as quoted by the U.S. Department of Energy, is possible due to the stable temperature of the earth below, where geothermal pipes are installed.
It does cost more upfront to install a geothermal system in comparison to any other type of HVAC system. However, the interior components can last for about 2 decades or more while the underground loops—when professionally installed of course—can last for 50 years! This far surpasses any other system. What you’d be saving in replacement costs would more than make this system worth it.
Geothermal heating and cooling systems do not use the same harmful greenhouse gas emissions that standard heat pumps, air conditioners, and furnaces do. While these other systems certainly have their benefits and the geothermal system isn’t right for every home, this is definitely a big benefit for many environmentally-conscious homeowners.
