Geothermal heat pumps can dramatically reduce your annual costs for heating, cooling and hot water by as much as 75% per year. No other furnace, air conditioner or heat pump comes close to that efﬁciency.
And they are cost effective. Due to the amazing efficiency of a GeoSmart Energy system, the monthly energy savings realized by choosing our technology can often be enough to offset the investment associated with the installation the equipment. Want a detailed report? Your GeoSmart Energy dealer can use the GeoSmart Design Studio software program to estimate the heating and cooling costs for your home based on the calculated heat loss and heat gain, construction style and climate. Then you can compare it to your current energy costs to get an idea of how much money you can save.
A GeoSmart Energy system operates more efficiently than ordinary heating and air conditioning systems—30 to 70 percent more efficiently, in most cases. For every unit of electricity the system uses, it provides four units of heating energy, giving a geothermal system a 400 percent efficiency rating, on average. These numbers can translate into real savings on your utility bills year-round.
With continuous and dramatic volatility in the cost of fossil fuels like natural gas, propane and fuel oil, the savings possibilities are even greater in the future.
