  • Fascinating Facts & Statistics
    Geothermal heating and cooling systems use the Earth's energy storage capability to heat and cool buildings and to provide hot water. The earth is a huge energy storage device that absorbs 47% of the sun's energy - more than 500 times more energy than mankind needs every year - in the form of clean, renewable energy. Geothermal systems take this heat during the heating season at an efficiency approaching or exceeding 400%, and return it during the cooling season... More

  • Residential geothermal Provides Huge Savings to Homeowners
    Geothermal systems represent a savings to homeowners of 30% to 70% in the heating mode, and 20% to 50% in the cooling mode compare to conventional systems. Well-designed residential systems exhibit positive cash flows from the first month: the incremental cost of amortizing the geothermal systems is less than the cost of the fuel or electricity not used.

  • The Most Energy Efficient and Environmentally Clean Systems Available
    Geothermal heating & cooling systems are the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean, and cost-effective space conditioning systems available, according to the Environmental Protection Agency1. EPA found that geothermal can reduce energy consumption-and corresponding emissions-by over 40% compared to air source heat pumps and by over 70% compared to electric resistance heating with standard air-conditioning equipment...
