Eight Fast Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Yes, indeed, it’s a big step to commit to a geothermal heating and cooling system for your home. But it is a step up. And many Charleston homeowners will say so – especially those who engaged Custom Climate Heating & Air for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still reviewing your options, not quite ready to choose, let these eight pivotal geothermal facts percolate in your head a little:

  • Modern geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been put to the test – and acing it! – for better than 50 years.
  • To date, there are significantly more than one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the States alone.
  • The public’s trust in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners grading the comfort, operational ease, and energy savings their geothermal systems furnish higher than that of any other system with which they’re familiar.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study reveals that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system being sold today.
  • Maintenance spending is noticeably lower with geothermal than with traditional central HVAC systems chiefly because geothermal systems have very few moving mechanisms and require very little maintenance to begin with.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems typically will last for a good 30 to 50 years, whereas conventional 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 maintaining a geothermal heating and cooling system shows that Charleston owners of geothermal systems frequently see a lowering of their energy bills ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are far more environmentally accommodating than any fossil fuel system, giving rise, by comparison, to roughly one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
