With the mammoth oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the global economic crisis, Americans are rightfully worried about our energy future. Oil production is expensive and dirty and, according to the government, likely to become more of both with crude oil harder to find and more difficult to access. With the future of oil so uncertain, more Americans are turning to geothermal energy for heating and air conditioning in their homes and businesses. When looking at efficiency and cost, geothermal energy is perhaps the cleanest and cheapest way to heat and cool your home.
How does Geothermal Heating & Air Conditioning Save Me Money?
Why is Geothermal Heating and Air Conditioning More Efficient?
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the biggest benefit of a geothermal system is that it uses 25%–50% less electricity than a conventional heating or cooling system. The EPA says that geothermal systems reduce energy consumption up to 44% when compared to air-source heat pumps, and up to 77% when compared to electric heat & AC. Geothermal systems also produce virtually no greenhouse gas emissions, since the only electricity required is to run the pump. Saving the environment has never been easier or less expensive!
