The Perks of Upgrading to a Geothermal Heat Pump

The Perks of Upgrading to a Geothermal Heat Pump

The push towards eco- and wallet-friendly options for home comfort has become more and more popular recently and many homeowners are discovering the benefits of geothermal heat pumps.  

Upgrading to a geothermal heat pump requires a higher upfront cost than traditional HVAC systems but the long-term benefits can be well worth it. Find out more about the advantages of switching to geothermal heat pumps and how McCall’s can help!

Cost Savings

Geothermal heat pumps require significantly less energy than conventional HVAC systems for several reasons:

  • Geothermal heat pumps move heat from one place to another
  • Conventional HVAC systems must generate their own hot or cold air
  • Geothermal heat pumps use minimal electricity to run the internal fan that pushes air into your home
  • Conventional HVAC units are exposed to outdoor elements and are subject to more frequent repairs and costly breakdowns
  • Geothermal heat pumps are typically indoors and kept safe from damaging outdoor elements such as debris or weather

Safer Heating and Cooling

Geothermal heat pumps rely on natural heat from the Earth rather than natural gas. Because of this, these heat pumps produce no toxic fumes or combustion gases and there is no risk of carbon monoxide harming your family.

Longer Life Span

Standard HVAC systems have a lifespan of about 8-10 years. On the other hand, geothermal heat pumps have been shown to last as long as 20 years. This increased life span can help offset any higher upfront costs that upgraded systems require.
