Geothermal Energy and Its Many Benefits

Geothermal Energy and Its Many Benefits

As a renewable source of energy, geothermal energy promotes the conservation of natural resources.  Due to the numerous benefits associated with using a geothermal heating and cooling system, an increasing number of individuals are opting to use it as their primary energy source. The following looks at just a few of the biggest benefits associated with the use of geothermal energy.


  • Geothermal systems are significantly more efficient than natural gas or electricity. For example, a geothermal heating pump is a staggering 450 percent more efficient than electricity. In most cases, homeowners are able to save between 20 percent and 50 percent annually in cooling costs, as well as 30 percent to 70 percent in heating costs when they switch to geothermal settings. In total, a geothermal system delivers a 400 percent efficiency rating. This is substantially higher than the most efficient gas furnace.
  • Geothermal systems are designed to be quiet. The sound they emit is frequently compared to that of a refrigerator.
  • Geothermal units tend to be very reliable because there are no outside parts. As a result, they are not subject to the wear and tear damage resulting from exposure to the outside elements or possible vandalism.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are considered the safest and most clean. A geothermal heat pump has no combustion, meaning there is absolutely no chance of carbon monoxide poisoning. By using high efficiency air cleaners with geothermal, your indoor air quality can be improved significantly. In addition, they have a very limited number of movable parts, making it difficult to get injured on.
  • Geothermal systems tend to last longer than typical furnaces. While your geothermal system will still be running smoothly in 15 years or more, a typical furnace rarely lasts more than 7 to 10 years with you providing routine maintenance. The polyethylene or geothermal piping thought to be able to last for up to 200 years.
  • Depending on where you live, the decision to install a geothermal heating and cooling system will make you eligible for tax credits. There are times when the tax credit may be in place for up to 8 years. Not long after you realize you are saving money on your monthly, you will also be able to see how it much it saves you on your taxes every year.
  • Geothermal systems do not contribute to global warming.


​Sustainability, low operating costs, a long life, and flexibility are just a few of the reasons more people are switching to geothermal energy.
