Jackson Geothermal HVAC & Drilling

BENEFITS

Ground source heat pump systems are among the most energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly heating, cooling, and water heating systems available, according to the US Department of Energy (DOE) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA reported in 1993 that geothermal technologies present a major opportunity for reducing national energy use and pollution, while delivering comfort, reliability and savings to homeowners.

  • Lower heating and cooling costs
    A geothermal system can cut utility bills by 30 to 60 percent compared to conventional heating and cooling systems.

  • Low maintenance
    All equipment is protected indoors or underground. A geothermal system can have a life expectancy of up to 30 years; ground loops are often warranted for up to 50 years.

  • Safe and natural
    Ground-source heat is naturally renewable and non-polluting. Geothermal energy is completely safe and natural.

  • No chimney or flue, no combustion
    With geothermal energy, no chimney or flue is needed. Because there are no combustibles, there is no danger of gas leaks or carbon monoxide poisoning. Since there is no combustion, your home retains its normal humidity and the air does not become dry in the winter.

  • Recoup your investment in as few as five years
    The higher the price for oil, gas and electricity, the sooner you recoup your investment in a geothermal system.

  • Equipment is Energy Star rated
    Our geothermal system equipment meets the strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and the DOE. Ths program helps us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.
