How much can I really save by installing a geothermal system?
Your exact savings will be determined by many variables, such as your climate, thermostat setting and electric rate, among others. Most homeowners will see a reduction of 30 to 70 percent in their heating and cooling costs.
A study by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency showed that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle cost of all heating and cooling systems currently on the market. Lower maintenance costs and longer life expectancy of geothermal units should certainly be taken into consideration when determining true savings.

Heating and cooling cycles
During the heating cycle, the fluid circulates through the loop extracting heat from the ground. The heat energy is transferred to the geothermal unit. The unit compresses the extracted heat to a high temperature and delivers it to your home through a normal duct system or radiant heat system.
