5 Advantages of Installing a Geothermal Heat Pump System | Airco

Posted on: Jul 12, 2018

A geothermal heat pump provides a number of benefits if you decide to have one installed. In fact, you may wonder why you’ve waited so long to have one installed in the first place. Here are five advantages of installing a geothermal heat pump and how the team at Airco Service Inc. can help.

Save Money

The heat pump will pull heat up from under the ground. This will help heat your home during the winter and cool your home during the summer (when it draws cooler air). While it isn’t enough to completely heat and cool, it’s enough to offset a considerable amount of your heating and cooling costs. Depending on the size of your home and a few other factors, you may see energy bills drop by upwards of 50 percent.

Improve Environmental Impact

You’ll no longer need to rely as heavily on electricity or propane to heat and cool your home. In turn, this reduces your environmental impact, which cuts down on carbon emissions.

Quiet to Run

You always know when the AC is running. It comes on and makes a considerable amount of noise. Even the quietest AC configurations generate a good amount of noise when running, regardless of the kind of system you have installed. A geothermal heat pump doesn’t have this kind of sound. There is no compressor or fan installed with the system. In fact, it will be about as loud as a refrigerator running.

Improves Property Value

Should you decide to sell your property, having a geothermal heat pump installed will significantly increase the property value. This is not something most neighbors likely have in the community, which can elevate your property value and make it more attractive to potential buyers.

Low Maintenance Costs

It doesn’t cost much to maintain a geothermal pump. In terms of maintaining and extending the life of the equipment, it takes far less continual servicing than what other systems require. This will help you save money on future repairs while reducing wear and tear on current HVAC equipment.

From saving money to improving your environmental impact, having a geothermal heat pump installed is a great addition to your home. So, if you’re curious about how such a pump can affect your home and how much it might cost, or if you’re ready to have one installed, give the team at Airco Service Inc. a call.
