Our geothermal units are made in America with the highest standards of quality. Each and every unit undergoes rigorous testing before it is packaged for shipping. While your exact savings will be determined by many variables, including your climate, thermostat setting and electric rate, most homeowners will see a reduction of 30% to 70% in their heating and cooling costs. A study by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency showed that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle cost of all heating and cooling systems currently on the market. Lower maintenance costs and longer life expectancy of geothermal units should certainly be taken into consideration when determining true savings.

According to data supplied by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Geothermal Technologies, nearly 40% of all U.S. emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the result of using energy to heat, cool and provide hot water for buildings. This is about the same amount of CO2 contributed by the transportation sector. Versus a conventional fossil fuel system, a standard 3-ton residential geothermal system produces approximately one less pound of carbon dioxide (CO2) for every hour of use. Over twenty years, the carbon footprint reduction would be equivalent to planting 120,000 acres of trees or converting over 58,000 cars to zero emission vehicles. By taking advantage of the "hot water assist" option, you can lower emissions even further by allocating heat removed from the home during the cooling season to provide hot water for household consumption.

In addition to the environmental benefit, hot water costs can be reduced by as much as 30%. Geothermal heating and cooling does not use geothermal energy, but rather ground source energy (For that reason, you may hear geothermal heat pumps called ground source heat pumps). Geothermal heat pump technology relies on the sun to heat the ground at the earth's surface rather than the earth's core to heat it from below. Geothermal energy use is not widespread due to the complications of geology. Because geothermal heat pumps use the sun's energy, which is much more accessible, their application is viable virtually everywhere.
