Geoexchange Systems Offer Numerous Benefits

There are many advantages to geoexchange heating and cooling systems over conventional HVAC systems, many of which are listed below.  See http://www.geoexchange.org/residential/compare.htm for information about how geoexchange systems compare with other types of systems.

  • One machine—Heating, cooling, and hot water are provided in one unit.

  • Low maintenance—Geoexchange systems have fewer moving parts than conventional systems.

  • Safe—Geoexchange systems have no open flames.

  • Clean—Geoexchange water source heat pump access panels are well constructed and tightly sealed and no combustion air is required.

  • Dependable—Geoexchange systems use proven solid state electronic controls.

  • Long lasting—A geoexchange water source heat pump will last up to 30 years when properly installed.

  • The geoexchange compressor operates under less stress than a conventional system which has to work harder to compensate for variable outside temperatures.

  • Each machine is sealed and run-tested at the factory, where a conventional system uses multiple components which must be put together at the job site.

  • No gas combustion which over time causes rust and corrosion of furnace components.

  • Lower cost of operation—Geoexchange systems are more efficient than fossil fuel or electric heating and cooling systems.

  • No gas piping—Geoexchange systems do not use natural gas.

  • No exhaust venting—Geoexchange systems have no combustion air or venting requirements.

  • Use existing ductwork—In most cases, can use ductwork already in your home.

  • Better extended warranties—Manufacturers are confident that their geoexchange water source heat pumps are longer lasting and more reliable than conventional equipment and thus offer longer warranties.

  • Environmentally friendly—Geoexchange systems:

  • require a smaller amount of refrigerant than a conventional system.
  • are non-polluting and have no exhaust emissions
  • are more efficient; they use less power than conventional systems.
  • generate no outdoor noise unlike conventional air conditioners and heat pumps.

Consider Geoexchange When...

  • Your power sources are limited to propane or electricity.
  • Outdoor noise is a concern.
  • You want to minimize your impact on the environment.
  • Your monthly utility bills are astronomical due to high electric costs.
  • You want a return on your investment.
  • You want constant, even temperatures throughout your home.
  • You plan to stay in your home for more than five years.
  • You want to minimize your heating and air conditioning maintenance requirements and costs.
  • You use propane and safety is a concern.
  • You don’t want an ugly propane tank on your property.
