Eight Fast Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Admittedly, 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 scores of New Haven County homeowners will tell you so – especially those who engaged Nero Air Conditioning and Heating for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still trying to wrap your head around it, not quite psyched to move forward, let these eight cardinal geothermal facts sink in a little:

  • Modern geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been vetted and perfected over the course of half a century or so.
  • As it is, there are significantly more than one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the United States alone.
  • The public’s confidence in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners rating the comfort, operational ease, and energy savings their geothermal systems provide 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 now sold.
  • Maintenance spending is noticeably lower with geothermal than with common central HVAC systems primarily because geothermal systems have so few moving mechanical parts and require so little maintenance in the first place.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems can keep on working for a respectable 30 to 50 years, whereas common HVAC systems quite often are in need of repair or replacement 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 clear that New Haven County owners of geothermal systems generally see a lowering of their energy bills ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are far less of an environmental threat than any fossil fuel system, generating, by comparison, nearly one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
