When it’s time to replace your old HVAC system, it makes sense to consider newer, more energy-efficient technologies. With all the heating and cooling systems out there, it’s important to do your research. Here are five reasons to go geothermal this year in your Jamestown, TN, home.
1. Environmentally Friendly
If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly HVAC system, a geothermal heating and cooling system is the way to go. Geothermal HVAC systems don’t produce carbon monoxide or greenhouse gases, which helps protect your indoor air quality and the environment.
Energy.gov states that geothermal HVAC systems use anywhere from 25% to 50% less electricity and reduce energy consumption by 44%. This increased efficiency and reduced consumption drastically reduce your heating and cooling bills.
3. Last Longer
Since your geothermal system stays underground, you don’t have to worry about weather elements such as rain, snow or ice. Since surface weather doesn’t affect geothermal systems, the system doesn’t need annual maintenance and has a far longer life than traditional HVAC systems.
4. Affordable Operation
Since geothermal HVAC systems don’t create fuel but draw energy from the ground, this saves you money on utility bills. The Ecology Action Center and the University of Michigan found that a geothermal system produces four units of energy for every unit of electricity, which means you save anywhere from 70% to 80% on your bills.
With traditional heating systems, you sometimes have to compete with the noise from your heating system or outdoor condensing units. Since geothermal heating is quiet, you don’t have to worry about noise pollution bothering you or your family members when you’re trying to focus, relax or sleep.
