Geothermal heat pumps (GHPs) are not only incredibly efficient at heating and cooling your home, but they also save you money in the process. How do GHPs accomplish this? Well, as we already said, they are extremely efficient. GHPs use up to 44% less energy than air-source heat pumps and as much as 72% less energy than other conventional heating and cooling solutions. And that leads to more money in your pocket!
What Makes Geothermal Heat Pumps So Energy Efficient?
While traditional air-source pumps draw heat from the outside air, geothermal pumps work by taking heat from the Earth’s surface. This proves to be much more energy efficient, because while the temperature of the outside air is in constant flux, the temperature below the Earth’s surface remains at a constant 50°F.
Additional Benefits of Geothermal Heat Pumps
• Geothermal Heat Pumps are quieter than traditional heating and cooling units.
• GHPs’ design flexibility allows them to be installed as part of newly-constructed homes or in retrofit situations.
• Geothermal Heat Pump hardware takes up less room than other systems, freeing up space in your home.
• These heat pumps are incredibly durable and last longer than traditional systems. The underground piping often carries warranties of 25–50 years, while the heat pumps, themselves, often last 20 years or more.
• GHPs require less maintenance than other heating and cooling systems.
• And if the geothermal pump has a two-speed compressor and variable fans, you can enjoy even more cost-savings on your energy bills.
