Geothermal System Benefits

An investment in a geothermal system provides an array of benefits not found in other systems.


Lower Operating Cost

A geothermal system operates more efficiently than ordinary heating and air conditioning systems because the can deliver four units of energy for every one unit of electrical energy used. That translates into an efficiency rating of 400 per cent, compared to the most efficient gas furnace, which rates only 94 per cent. By combining stored energy with safe electric power, many homeowners realize savings up to 60-70% for heating, cooling and hot water.

Lower Life Cycle Cost

Because of the extraordinary efficiency of a geothermal system, any added investment related to installing a geothermal unit is usually more than offset by your energy savings. In new homes, most homeowners will experience an immediate positive return on their investment when the system cost is added to the mortgage. In replacement installations, homeowners find that any added investment over the cost of an ordinary system is generally recovered in energy savings within a few years. And with a long system life and less maintenance, overall life cycle costs are lower with geothermal.

Enhanced Comfort

Provides precise distributing of comfortable air all year long, eliminating hot spots and cold spots. During heating, you'll experience warm air without the hot blasts associated with ordinary gas furnaces. And compared to an air-source heat pump, the air is warmer. When cooling, a geothermal unit delivers cool, dehumidified air. For ultimate comfort, a zoning system can added, using multiple thermostats to precisely control temperatures in various zones.


Because natural gas, propane or oil are not required to operate a geothermal unit, there's no combustion, flames or fumes and no chance of carbon-monoxide poisoning.


With the all-electric geothermal system, there are no fumes produced during operation. By adding optional high efficiency air cleaners, you'll achieve high levels of indoor air quality.


Unlike ordinary air conditioners or heat pumps, there is no noisy outdoor unit to disturb your outdoor environment or your neighbors. Geothermal units are designed and constructed for "whisper quiet" operation, similar to your refrigerator. Some models include variable speed fan motors and acoustical enclosures for the compressors.


Unlike air conditioners and heat pumps, geothermal units are installed indoors (like your refrigerator), so they are not subject to wear and tear caused by rain, snow, ice, debris, extreme temperatures or vandalism. Geothermal units have proven to be very reliable and require less maintenance.

Environmentally Friendly

Geothermal systems are the most environmentally friendly way to heat and cool your home. The system emits no carbon monoxide or other greenhouse gasses which are considered to be major contributors to environmental air pollution. With a geothermal system, you can take comfort in a better environment. In addition, the lower peak demand for geothermal systems helps to postpone the need to build more expensive electric generating plants.


Geothermal systems are installed in homes form the cold climate of northern Canada and Alaska to the heat Florida and Texas. Whether your home is new or old, large or small, a geothermal system will deliver. One compact unit provides heating, central air conditioning and domestic hot water. Various sizes, configurations (horizontal, vertical, splits), and options enable a system to be installed in virtually any application.
