More and more Crawfordville, Florida, homeowners are making the switch from traditional HVAC systems to geothermal heat pumps, and for good reason. Geothermal heat pumps are energy efficient, long-lasting, better for the environment, quiet, and safe.
Geothermal heat pumps are incredibly energy efficient. Since they utilize the earth’s natural energy to heat and cool instead of burning fossil fuels, they use much less energy to operate than traditional heating and cooling systems. In fact, thanks to their energy efficiency, Energy.gov estimates that utilizing a geothermal heat pump in your home instead of a traditional HVAC system can cut your utility bills by up to 65%.
Geothermal heat pumps are built to last and have exceptionally long lifespans when compared to other heating and cooling systems. The unit’s outside components have an average lifespan of about 50 years while the interior components typically last for 25. In addition, they require less maintenance than traditional HVAC units, leading to huge cost savings over the life of the unit.
Better for the Environment
Geothermal heat pumps are one of the most environmentally friendly ways to heat and cool a home. Since they don’t burn fuel to operate, they don’t release carbon monoxide or any other greenhouse gasses that increase your carbon footprint and contribute to air pollution.
Geothermal units don’t utilize an outdoor compressor, and their interior components are designed to run quietly. This results in extremely quiet operation, similar to the hum of your refrigerator.
Geothermal units don’t burn gas to heat your home, which means you don’t have to worry about carbon monoxide poisoning. Since they utilize renewable heat energy from the earth instead of flammable fossil fuels, geothermal heat pumps are one of the safest, most secure ways to heat and cool.
