Geothermal Heat Pumps Can Slash Energy Use in Buildings

Geothermal heat pumps effectively address one of the biggest consumers of U.S. energy — buildings. Indeed, buildings dominate our nation’s energy use, devouring over half of our electricity and natural gas. More than 70% of average energy demand for a typical single family home is to meet heating and cooling (thermal) needs. With a geothermal heat pump, that energy use can be cut by 40% to 70%, reaping significant savings on electricity and natural gas utility bills.

Energy Savings Offer Fast Payback of Installation

Though there is a higher “first cost” for Geothermal Heat Pump systems associated with excavation or drilling for installation of ground loops, energy savings can quickly make up the difference in system cost compared to installation of conventional systems. Energy savings “payback” for typical residential Geothermal Heat Pump installations compared to standard heating and air conditioning equipment is usually 4 to 7 years, and even less time than that with federal, state and utility rebates.

Geothermal Heat Pumps are Made in the USA

Geothermal Heat Pumps are manufactured right here in the United States, with American labor and parts, and that spells Jobs. From innovative manufacturing through system design, systems for residential and commercial use are distributed and installed with local labor, creating an engine for economic growth. Geothermal systems spur the creation of skilled, well-paid jobs across the nation everywhere they are installed. Thousands of jobs can be created with increased deployment of Geothermal Heat Pumps.

Geothermal Heat Pumps Can Be Deployed Everywhere

Geothermal Heat Pumps harness on-site renewable energy from the Earth and are a readily available technology that can be used everywhere. Geothermal Heat Pumps are truly a “50-State” renewable technology that provide large energy savings and complementary environmental benefits to both new building construction and retrofits for older structures.
