Geothermal utilizes renewable energy from the earths crust. In a home this is done through the use of a ground source geothermal heat pump. Vertical or horizontal loops are installed and attached to an indoor system that can provide your heating, cooling and hot water. This works year round for all seasons under all weather and climate conditions.
Geothermal heat pumps possess the same capability as other heat pumps – providing the ability to heat and cool, as well as supply hot water throughout the home. However, in comparison to other air-source heat pumps, they make much less noise, have a very long shelf life, need quite minimal maintenance, and have no relation to the outside air temperature.
While initial installation costs may be more expensive than other air source heat pumps for heating and cooling, the long-term cost savings can very well outweigh the initial cost. This is because these systems use a lot less energy than other alternatives, meaning you will save money on energy costs in the years after installation. Estimated shelf life for these systems can be up to 24 years for inside components and over 50 years for ground loops.
