Admittedly, it’s a big step to move ahead with a geothermal heating and cooling system for your home. But it is a step up. And many Boone homeowners will say so – especially those who turned to Scott Brothers Heating & Air for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still mulling your options over, not quite primed to decide, let these eight pivotal geothermal facts roll around in your brain a little:

  • Present-day geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been put to the test – and acing it! – for more than 50 years.
  • To date, there are well over one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the States alone.
  • The public’s confidence in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners grading the comfort, ease of use, and energy savings their geothermal systems afford 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 now available.
  • Maintenance spending is markedly lower with geothermal than with standard central HVAC systems essentially because geothermal systems have very few moving mechanical parts and need very little maintenance in the first place.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems can hold up for a solid 30 to 50 years, whereas common HVAC systems generally have to 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 Boone owners of geothermal systems normally realize energy savings ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are known to be more environmentally friendly than any fossil fuel system, producing, by comparison, about one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
