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 Omaha homeowners will say so – especially those who engaged Getzschman Heating & Air Conditioning for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still trying to wrap your head around it, not quite psyched to choose, chew on these basic geothermal facts:

  • Present-day geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been vetted and perfected over the course of half a century or so.
  • Right now, there are considerably more than one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the States alone.
  • General confidence in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners grading the comfort, ease of use, and energy savings their geothermal systems afford 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 currently sold.
  • Maintenance costs are conspicuously lower with geothermal than with standard central HVAC systems primarily because geothermal systems have very few moving mechanisms and need very little maintenance to begin with.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems normally will continue working for a good 30 to 50 years, whereas standard HVAC systems generally must be repaired or replaced after 15 years.
  • Comparing the cost of local utilities and fossil fuel to the cost of operating a geothermal heating and cooling system makes it patently obvious that Omaha owners of geothermal systems generally realize energy savings ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are much more environmentally accommodating than any fossil fuel system, producing, by comparison, about one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
