While investing in a Geothermal Heat Pump for your home is an expense, there are a lot of reasons why it is the right thing for a lot of homeowners. If you are considering installing a geothermal system, here are some of the reasons why it is an investment that makes sense.
· Geothermal Energy is Environmentally Friendly: Geothermal heats and cools your home using only existing energy. By moving energy to create a more comfortable environment in your home, it eliminates the need to burn fuel and pollute the environment.
· Geothermal Systems Cost Very Little to Run: Although a Geothermal system costs more to install up front, the cost to run a system is very minimal. Most homeowners recoup their upfront costs in 4 to 15 years, depending on if your original system was gas or propane.
· Geothermal Greatly Increases the Value of Your Home: In a place like Colorado where homebuyers greatly value a home with a reduced carbon footprint, installing a geothermal system can be a very attractive differentiator from other homes in your neighborhood.
· Geothermal Equipment Lasts Much Longer Than Traditional Equipment: Typically the indoor equipment will last about 25 years (as compared to traditional equipment, which lasts 15 years), and the ground source loop will run well for 50 years or longer.
While geothermal systems can be a large investment, most homeowners are extremely happy with their system, and see a relatively quick return on their investment both in energy bills and when they sell their home.
