What are the Benefits of Geothermal Heating?
According to Consumer Reports, a typical 1970s gas furnace has an annual fuel-utilization-efficiency (AFUE) of about 65 percent. And by law, the lowest efficiency for a new gas furnace is 78 percent. Additionally, Consumer Reports states that the most efficient newer models have an AFUE of about 97 percent. However, geothermal delivers a 400% efficiency rating, which means four units of energy are delivered for every one unit of electrical energy. The reason for this is that geothermal systems transfer heat instead of burning something to create heat. It is by far a more efficient system that can lower your energy bill up to 70 percent.
Why Do Homeowners Prefer Geothermal Heating?
Geothermal heating systems are preferred by homeowners due to their quiet operation and low environmental impact. Unlike heat pumps or air conditioners, the geothermal unit is placed indoors. This saves your unit from premature wear and tear caused by environmental elements such as rain, snow, ice, and heat.
In addition, geothermal heating systems are recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy and EPA as one of the most environmentally friendly ways to heat and cool a home. This is because the system does not emit carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases, which add to air pollution. These systems help lower the need for additional electric generating plants and peak grid demand (an emergency power station that provides power to electrical grids for peak demand).
Geothermal heating systems are also clean and safe. There is no combustion and reduced risk of potential carbon monoxide poisoning.
How Long Do These Systems Last?
The system is good for at least 15 years. A typical furnace will last about 7 to 10 years, even with regular maintenance. With a geothermal system, the ground loops (buried pipes in the yard) are made of polypropylene, which usually last up to 50 years.
Geothermal heating systems are a great investment for homeowners. They can offset the initial cost of installation in a short time while producing significant utility savings. Made the decision to install a new system? Call us today at (317) 881-7738 for a FREE estimate!
