Eight Fast Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

For sure, it’s a big step to endorse the installation of a geothermal heating and cooling system for your home. But it is a step up. And many Southeast Missouri homeowners will affirm that – particularly those who sought out Lundy HTG. & CLG. for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still trying to wrap your head around it, not quite psyched to decide, give these geothermal facts a whirl:

  • Present-day geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been put to the test – and acing it! – for more than 50 years.
  • As it is, there are considerably more than one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the States alone.
  • The public’s happiness with geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners ranking the comfort, ease of use, and energy savings their geothermal systems provide higher than that of any other system they’ve had.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study shows that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system now available.
  • Maintenance costs are significantly lower with geothermal than with standard central HVAC systems mostly because geothermal systems have very few moving mechanical parts and require very little maintenance to begin with.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems can last for a respectable 30 to 50 years, whereas common 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 running a geothermal heating and cooling system makes it patently obvious that Southeast Missouri 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 recognized as being more environmentally responsible than any fossil fuel system, producing, by comparison, nearly one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
