Geothermal pays off (literally) for homeowners
Homeowners are always looking for ways to save money. One of the most effective ways to do so is through the use of geothermal heating and cooling systems.
ClimateMaster, the largest maker of geothermal heat pumps, continually promotes the benefits of its products, chiefly the role they play in driving down heating and cooling bills. In fact, the system has proven so efficient that in some cases homeowners receive payments from their local utility because their home actually produces more energy that it uses.
That’s significant, considering heating, cooling and hot water production typically make up 70 percent of a home’s monthly utility bill. ClimateMaster heat pumps provide between 400 and 600 percent efficiency. Besides that, the company’s geothermal pumps are virtually maintenance-free throughout its lifetime, which can surpass 25 years.
Geothermal is considered the most efficient source of energy in the 21st century because it uses the Earth’s nature temperature from below the surface to condition the air inside a home. The system is known for even dispersion of consistent temperatures throughout a home, regardless of the exterior conditions or temperatures.
With the geothermal system tapping the ground below, the pumps don’t produce any pollution.
So when it comes to weighing the cost of a geothermal system compared to the savings and earning potential, geothermal can be a difference-maker for homeowner’s who desire long-term efficiency and financial tranquility.
