World Class Services provides a broad range of heating services to Westerville and surrounding areas, including geothermal solutions. Geothermal heating equipment taps into naturally occurring heat below the ground and transfers it to your home. Let us consider five benefits.
1. Total Cost of Ownership
While geothermal heating solutions tend to have a higher up-front cost than traditional systems, they offer a much better life-cycle cost. Traditional systems last 15 years on average, but geothermal systems can last generations and often come with a 50-year warranty. In addition, your monthly costs will be less. In fact, homeowners can reduce their energy bills by as much as 70 percent.
2. Indoor Air Quality
You can achieve optimal IAQ in any home, but geothermal heating is inherently IAQ-friendly. There is no combustion and thus no carbon monoxide concerns. Air is not recycled, so pollution accumulation is less of a concern, and many systems include or can easily add dehumidification and air purification functions.
Geothermal solutions produce clean energy since the heat comes straight from the earth. In addition, these systems use 25 to 50 percent less electricity than traditional systems to produce the same amount of heating.
4. Quiet Operation
Geothermal heating systems may currently be the quietest heating solution available. There is no need for an indoor furnace or outdoor condenser that often emits unwanted noise. These systems do tend to use ductwork and are not perfectly silent, but they are much quieter.
5. Hot Water Supply
Another advantage of geothermal heating is that it can provide you with hot water as well as heating. Such systems can provide all the hot water that an average home could want, which outperforms tankless solutions while existing as a more quiet, efficient and cost-effective option.
