Eight Fast Facts About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Yes, indeed, it’s a big step to endorse the installation of a geothermal heating and cooling system for your home. But it is a step up. And many Myrtle Beach homeowners will vouch for that – particularly those who sought out J & J Air for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still trying to wrap your head around it, not quite primed to choose, consider these focal geothermal facts:

  • Current geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been put to the test – and acing it! – for better than 50 years.
  • As it happens, there are well over one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the United States alone.
  • The public’s trust in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners grading the comfort, operational ease, and energy savings their geothermal systems provide higher than that of any other system with which they’re familiar.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study discloses that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system marketed today.
  • Maintenance costs are conspicuously lower with geothermal than with traditional central HVAC systems mainly because geothermal systems have very few moving mechanisms and need very little maintenance to begin with.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems can keep on working for a good 30 to 50 years, whereas standard HVAC systems quite often are in need of repair or replacement 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 Myrtle Beach owners of geothermal systems frequently find their energy bills reduced by amounts ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are known to be more environmentally accommodating than any fossil fuel system, producing, by comparison, about one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
