  • Right now, there are well over one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the United States alone.
  • The public’s happiness with geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners ranking the comfort, convenience, and energy savings their geothermal systems furnish higher than that of any other system they’ve used.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study shows that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system now marketed.
  • Maintenance costs are significantly lower with geothermal than with common central HVAC systems chiefly because geothermal systems have relatively few moving machine parts and require relatively little maintenance anyway.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems can hold up for a good 30 to 50 years, whereas common HVAC systems generally must be repaired or replaced after 15 years.
  • Comparing the cost of local utilities and fossil fuel to the cost of maintaining a geothermal heating and cooling system reveals that Northern Colorado owners of geothermal systems often see a reduction in their energy bills ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are much more environmentally responsible than any fossil fuel system, producing, by comparison, nearly one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
