  • 21st century geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been worked and reworked, hammered and honed over the course of at least five decades or so.
  • Right now, there are well over one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the United States alone.
  • Consumer confidence in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners rating the comfort, operational ease, and energy savings their geothermal systems afford higher than that of any other system with which they’re familiar.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study discloses that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system now available.
  • Maintenance spending is conspicuously lower with geothermal than with standard central HVAC systems chiefly because geothermal systems have very few moving machine parts and require very little maintenance in the first place.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems typically will remain on the job for a respectable 30 to 50 years, whereas standard HVAC systems quite often are in need of repair or replacement after 15 years.
  • Comparing the cost of local utilities and fossil fuel to the cost of operating a geothermal heating and cooling system shows that Rochester owners of geothermal systems often realize energy savings ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are known to be more environmentally accommodating than any fossil fuel system, giving rise, by comparison, to nearly one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
