And many West Chester homeowners will say so – especially those who turned to Sinton Air Conditioning & Heating, Inc. for their geothermal system installation. If you’re still trying to wrap your head around it, not quite psyched to choose, let these eight cardinal geothermal facts percolate in your head a little:

  • Present-day geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been put to the test – and acing it! – for upwards of 50 years.
  • As it happens, there are well over one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the United States alone.
  • General happiness with geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners ranking the comfort, convenience, 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 marketed.
  • Maintenance spending is noticeably lower with geothermal than with common central HVAC systems primarily because geothermal systems have so few moving mechanisms and need so little maintenance in the first place.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems typically will last for a good 30 to 50 years, whereas conventional HVAC systems quite often must be repaired or replaced after 15 years.
  • Comparing the cost of local utilities and fossil fuel to the cost of maintaining a geothermal heating and cooling system reveals that West Chester owners of geothermal systems often find their energy bills lowered by amounts ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are far more environmentally accommodating than any fossil fuel system, producing, by comparison, about one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
