  • Right now, there are significantly more than one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations in this country alone.
  • Overall trust in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners grading the comfort, ease of use, and energy savings their geothermal systems furnish higher than that of any other system with which they’re familiar.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study shows that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system on the market today.
  • Maintenance spending is markedly lower with geothermal than with common central HVAC systems chiefly because geothermal systems have so few moving machine parts and require so little maintenance in the first place.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems can keep working efficiently for a solid 30 to 50 years, whereas traditional 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 makes it clear that Huntington owners of geothermal systems frequently realize energy savings ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are far less of an environmental challenge than any fossil fuel system, giving rise, by comparison, to almost one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
