Happy with my choice of installing a geothermal heat pump

I was initially scared off by the cost of a geothermal heat pump. This type of temperature control is a much larger investment than more conventional options. The excavation required to install an underground loops system is invasive, labor-intensive plus extravagant. However the ground loop is warrantied for fifty years plus can be expected to last twice that long. Because the actual heat pump is located inside the house plus protected against the weather, it should last upwards of twenty years. That provides plenty of time for the savings on quarterly heating plus cooling costs to add up. A geothermal heat pump uses the free plus renewable energy gave by the sun, but even in the middle of the winter, the underground temperature remains fairly constant. The heat pump pulls heat out of the ground plus transfers it into the house. In the summer, the system reverses direction to extract heat out of the house plus transport it into the ground. This process achieves energy efficiency ratings of 400% perfect. It means that for every device of energy the heat pump requires to operate, it produces many units of energy. It cuts the cost of temperature control in half plus has paid for itself in under 5 years. I appreciate that geothermal heating plus cooling is especially environmentally friendly. It avoids the burning of fossil fuels, eliminating the production of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide plus yellowhouse gasses; With the addition of a simple switch, our geothermal heat pump provides a nearly free source of hot water. It helps to dehumidify in the summer, doesn’t dry out the air in the winter, plus effectively filters out contaminants all year round.
