Did You Know?

If you are building a new home or need to replace your furnace, air conditioner and/or water heater, a ground-source heat pump can be a cost-effective alternative to new or replacement heating and cooling systems. 

 

Taking advantage of the relatively constant temperatures of the ground below the frost line, a ground-source heat pump costs 30 to 70 percent less to operate for heating and 20 to 50 percent less for cooling over conventional furnaces, air-source heat pumps, and air conditioners.  You can also take advantage of free hot water in the summer when operating in cooling mode by using heat collected from the air in your home to heat your hot water rather than send the heat back into the ground to be dissipated. 

 

Ground-source heat pumps cost more to install than conventional heating and cooling systems, mainly because of the well drilling or direct burial of outdoor water lines, but depending on how inefficient your current system(s) are, the units can pay for themselves in four to twelve years, and even quicker if energy prices skyrocket in the future.
