Why Geothermal?

geothermal systemGeothermal systems create a significant reduction in the heating and cooling costs as compared to the conventional heating and cooling systems most people have in their homes today. For every unit of electricity the system uses to operate, it provides 3 to 4 units of heating and cooling energy. A Geothermal system also provides:

Environmental Responsibility. Geothermal Systems reduce the consumption of fossil fuels for heating and cooling your home. This reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions and environmental damage associated with removing fossil fuels.
Increased Comfort. Geothermal uses the stable earth temperatures to maintain consistent indoor temperatures. This translates into a more even heat in the winter and better humidity control in the summer.
Cost Savings. Geothermal systems pay for themselves over time by drastically reduced utility bills. On top of that, the upfront costs can be offset by the 30% Energy Tax Credit for Geothermal Systems.
Safety. Geothermal systems do not burn fossil fuels, so there are no flames, no odors, and no risk from carbon monoxide when using Geothermal in an all electric system.
The reality is that Geothermal Systems are simply the most energy efficient systems available today. They are also environmentally friendly, so you can feel good when that thermostat calls for heating or cooling. Combined with the Energy Tax Credit, Geothermal systems are also more affordable than they have ever been. So now is the time to upgrade to a Geothermal system.
