Choosing Geothermal Heating and Cooling Means Impressive Energy Savings
Geothermal heating and cooling is an excellent choice for most American homes. This type of system can provide a consistent indoor temperature year-round, no matter what the weather is doing. That is one huge advantage over other alternative energies, such as wind or solar. Geothermal also uses a fraction of the electricity that traditional heating and cooling systems use.
So you may be wondering, "Just how much money could I really save by switching to geothermal heating and cooling?"
It goes without saying that every home is unique. Outcomes will depend on your existing home, your climate, and your family's heating and cooling preferences. Each structure has its own existing ducts, insulation, and energy efficiency issues. But according to the experts, in the summer months, you can save 42% to 55% off your cooling bill. Plus, it might not cost you a dime to heat your water during the warm months.
Your savings in the colder months largely depend on what fuel source you currently use for heating. In the colder months, you can expect to save 42% (if you currently use a heat pump) to 78% (if you currently use a standard propane system). You should also expect to save 40% to 50% on the cost of heating your water with the same system.
