5 Benefits of Geothermal Heating

It is pretty incredible to think about the fact that we can harness power, warmth, and cold from our planet. Not only is this a fact that allows us to spend less time and energy trying to keep our daily lives moving, but it is also one that means we can spend less cash overall to keep comfortable.

Geothermal heating and cooling is a marvel of technology that coincidentally uses knowledge that we’ve been making the most of for millennia (see people holing up in caves or building their homes in a hillside for reference). But for now, we just want to focus on the benefits of using geothermal heating to keep you comfortable this winter.

Five Benefits of Your Geothermal Heat Pump

We want to make sure you know about some of the benefits that come with your geothermal heat pump system. We could list a lot, but here’s five for now.


While the initial installation of a geothermal system can be somewhat pricey, everything else from maintenance and repairs, to operation, is pretty affordable.

Environmentally Friendly

Because your geothermal heat pump is harnessing the Earth’s temperature, it doesn’t have to use as much energy to produce warmth. Using less energy means using less fuel and no greenhouse gases being produced, which all together make this a pretty eco-friendly system.

Extended Lifespan

The heat pump within your home that blows the temperature-controlled air should last around 15 or more years with regular maintenance. The underground loop can last up to 50 or more years because it isn’t exposed to the wear and tear of the weather above ground.

Less Noise

Because your geothermal system cycles a mixture of antifreeze and water in a loop under your home, rather than creating temperature-controlled air via an outdoor condensing unit, you won’t really hear much of anything when it is heating your home.

Optimized Comfort

Your geothermal system won’t ever need to struggle to create warm air because it is making the most of the even temperatures within the Earth. This means that even when it is freezing outside, you can keep warm without sending your utility bills sky-high. Additionally, this system doesn’t recycle air, meaning you will enjoy optimal indoor are quality at all times.
