5 Advantages of a Geothermal System

How can you save the most on heating and air conditioning?

Moving to a geothermal system can save you a significant amount of money, and their ability to provide comfort is perfectly suited to South Carolina’s climate.

Look at the following five advantages provided by a geothermal system:

  1. Geothermal lowers your bills in a big way. Homeowners report a 50 – 60 percent drop in monthly utility costs.
  2. Geothermal can heat and cool your home, as well as power other green advancements. It’s common for homeowners to pair a geothermal heat pump with radiant flooring or a geothermal water heater.
  3. Geothermal use very little energy and create little waste. Unlike a traditional furnace and air conditioner combo, geothermal systems don’t output massive amounts of CO2. They go a long way in reducing your home’s carbon footprint.
  4. Geothermal systems can handle hot heat and freezing cold. Furnaces and air conditioners struggle under extreme temperatures, and to a degree geothermal systems do too. Thankfully, units come equipped with an electrical backup unit that can boost heating and cooling if needed.
  5. Geothermal systems last. currently recommends replacing your AC every 10 years and your heating equipment every 15 years. Geothermal units, on the other hand, can last up to three decades.
