Yes, indeed, it’s a big step to move ahead with a geothermal heating and cooling system for your home. But it is a step up. And many Central Minnesota homeowners will say so – especially those who sought out Geothermal Concept for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still mulling your options over, not quite primed to choose, let these eight pivotal geothermal facts roll around in your brain a bit:

  • Present-day geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been tried and perfected over the course of 50 years or so.
  • As it stands, there are well over one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the United 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 afford higher than that of any other system they’ve used.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study discloses that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system currently being marketed.
  • Maintenance exexpenditures are notably lower with geothermal than with common central HVAC systems chiefly because geothermal systems have relatively few moving mechanisms and need relatively little maintenance anyway.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems can keep working efficiently for a respectable 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 reveals that Central Minnesota owners of geothermal systems frequently find their energy bills lowered by amounts ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are much more environmentally responsible than any fossil fuel system, producing, by comparison, nearly one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
