Are the Utility Savings from a Geothermal System Worth the Up-front Costs?

Taking advantage of green energy for your HVAC may have some upfront costs, but the long-term savings are worth the investment.

Utility Savings

If you are wondering about green energy, specifically geothermal systems, the first question that comes to mind may be: “Is it worth the up-front costs?” Geothermal energy works by transferring heat, not producing it. In addition to working with your heating and cooling, geothermal also has the ability to provide hot water to your home. It is amazingly energy efficient, but it can be scary to contemplate the initial investment. But there is hope; there are actually a lot of ways not only to save money on utility bills with geothermal energy, but also with the up-front costs of getting it installed into your home.

Consider these ways you can save with geothermal energy:

  1. Government and state incentives, rebates, and financing are available for geothermal systems. You could save thousands of dollars on your up-front costs right now simply by taking advantage of going green.
  2. Because geothermal requires so much less energy to run, you can immediately begin to save up to 60% on your heating and cooling costs, which means that you have the potential to regain your up-front costs within just a few years.
  3. The lifespan of geothermal systems is significantly longer than that of traditional HVAC systems, which means you will not have to buy another HVAC system in the near future.

There is no denying the real benefits of green energy for your home and with the financial assistance available to help with the initial investment, including financing from various sources to help you with that big chunk of change, the real question to ask is, “Why haven’t I installed a geothermal system yet?”
