Why Choose Geothermal For Your Home?
Geothermal Systems are Energy Efficient
At the heart of every geothermal system is its heat pump. Geothermal heat pumps require only a small a small amount of electricity to operate. Looking at the COP (co-efficiency of performance) we can say that a geothermal system will reduce your energy costs by 60-70% when compared to other conventional home heating systems.
As we look to the future it would appear that home energy costs are going to continue to rise. This means that your energy savings will only increase by going geothermal. A properly designed and installed geothermal heating and cooling system will provide a perpetual source of cost effective, environmentally friendly home heating and cooling.
Low Operating Costs
For the Vancouver marketplace we see energy cost savings of up to 70% for customers using geothermal systems. Geothermal systems can also supplement or provide all the heat needed for domestic hot water, hot tubs, and swimming pools.
Geothermal systems are environmentally friendly
Vancouver residential customers benefit form the near elimination of the combustion of fossil fuels on site. A geothermal systems heat pump only requires a small amount of energy to operate the entire system. Geothermal systems greatly reduce the emission of greenhouse gasses and the environmental damage associated with nonrenewable resource extraction.
Geothermal systems are very safe
Residential geothermal systems have no flame, no flue, no odours and no risk from carbon monoxide. Just safe, reliable operation year after year.
Geothermal heat pumps can provide any combination of forced-air heating, radiant in-floor heating, domestic hot water, and air conditioning for your home. Geothermal systems can provide a highly versatile way to heat and cool the entire home and even swimming pools.
Residential geothermal systems are completely self-contained. There is no need for a noisy and unsightly outside condensing unit. Geothermal systems are quiet and discrete.
Is a Geothermal System the Best Option For Your Home?
This is a big question and we specialize in accessing all the costs, benefits and drawbacks of all home heating systems. With a geothermal system the main factor comes down to initial installation costs. For most Vancouver geothermal residential systems a considerable amount of pre-construction drilling is required to install the piping that make the system work. These costs can be significant and can fluctuate based on many factors including:
- Geothermal system type and size
- Geology of the sub-terrain
- Labour and construction costs
- Permitting issues
