Geothermal Heating & Cooling ~ Light on Your Wallet & Your Ears
Real Dollar Savings
Geothermal HVAC systems are not only recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy as the most efficient heating and cooling available, you can also save big, long-term dollars on the operation of the system. Check out the results below from a geothermal system installation in South Bend, Indiana—a town that’s no stranger to humid summers and long winter nights like we have in New Hampshire and Maine.
Total Operating Costs Comparison
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that geothermal system installation costs for new properties or retrofits can be recouped in two to ten years, depending upon a variety of factors including climate, soil conditions, geothermal heating and cooling system features and available financing and incentives. In truth, it is somewhat difficult to project geothermal heating and cooling installation payback timing due to the above variables as well as insulation quality, energy-efficient windows and other elements (or the lack thereof), especially when retrofitting existing properties. That said, extensive government and private data shows geothermal heating and cooling often yields significant cost savings versus electrlc or fossil fuel-based solutions.
