  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study reveals that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system available today.
  • Maintenance costs are markedly lower with geothermal than with standard central HVAC systems mostly because geothermal systems have so few moving mechanisms and need so little maintenance in the first place.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems normally will keep performing admirably for a solid 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 owners of geothermal systems frequently realize energy savings ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
