Every buyer who is considering a geothermal (earth energy) system is concerned about the cost.  There are many economic benefits in using a geothermal system; these benefits are for the builders as well as the home owners. The benefits accruing to a property which has installed a geothermal system translate into higher property prices in the market and the same will be passed on to the future buyers. These benefits include, but are not limited to the following:

  • The system requires much less space which in many cases can be used for better purposes or to generate revenue
  • Fossil fuel consumption is almost eliminated, which will generate compound savings for the life of the geothermal system
  • Expected life of a geothermal system (GHX)  is over 50 years 
  • The heating and cooling are provided through the same system
  • There is much less upkeep to worry about
  • There is much less maintenance and repair costs compared to conventional systems
  • Security of the geothermal energy supply is as solid as the ground you walk on.
