Benefits of Geothermal Heating

September 13, 2021

You might think that the US households consume the most energy, and you’d be wrong. Canada uses slightly more, making it imperative to find an alternative source. On average, a Canadian household pays upwards of $1200 per year on electricity alone, most of it caused solely by heating. Opting for a more sustainable resource, geothermal heating can help save money throughout the year and is a more environmentally friendly choice.

How It Works

Using an underground loop of circulating water, geothermal heating absorbs heat from deep within the ground and turns it into a sustainable source to keep your home at the temperature you want. While it is a cost-efficient way to heat your house, it can also be used the same way in the summer for cooling as an alternative to AC.

Becoming more and more popular, geothermal pumps have been a great way to help reduce costs and save our planet compared to oil and gas options.

Advantages

  • Geothermal heating is more eco-friendly than other heating sources, such as oil, gas, coal. Pollution emitted from geothermal power plants is relatively minimal.
  • It is a renewable and sustainable energy source that is produces naturally, which can be hard to find these days.
  • This type of heating is reliable, as it is a naturally renewable source.
  • Geothermal energy can be used to both heat and cool your home, making it the most cost-efficient choice year long.

Disadvantages

  • Due to a geothermal pump needing space underground, some locations may be restricted.
  • Upfront, this heating system can be costly. Rest assured; you are more than likely to save in the long run.
