About GeoComfort® Geothermal Heating and Cooling Systems
GeoComfort® geothermal heating and cooling systems provide a higher and more energy efficient BTU rating than any other system on the market today. In fact, they well surpass the energy efficiency requirements set by Energy Star. Each geothermal system uses variable speed motors. What this means for you is lower energy costs. Instead of being either “on” or “off” while heating or cooling your home, a GeoComfort® system will only use the energy required to maintain a constant temperature. The geothermal system can also capture any unused heat and transfer it to your water heater, lowering your energy costs even further.
A GeoComfort® geothermal heating and cooling system can be added to many existing systems or stand alone as new installation. Your geothermal system will provide all of your air conditioning needs and 80-90% of your heating needs. Your contentional furnace will only be called into action in times of extended extreme cold.
One of the best parts about going with a GeoComfort® geothermal heating and cooling system; they’re made right here in America in Mitchell, SD.
Benefits of Owning a GeoComfort® Geothermal Heating and Cooling System
When you have a GeoComfort® geothermal heating and cooling system installed, you’ll start reaping the energy saving benefits immediately. Your energy costs can be reduced up to 70% based on the climate where you live, your thermostat setting and your electric rate. You’ll receive these benefits throughout the duration of most home mortgages. A GeoComfort® system lasts on average 20-24 years, saving you thousands of dollars during the years of operation.
A geothermal heating and cooling system has also been proven to be the most environmentally friendly way to heat and cool your home. GeoComfort® systems produce roughly one pound less of the greenhouse gas carbon-dioxide for every hour the system is in use, compared to conventional heating and cooling systems. In simple terms, over a twenty-year period, this carbon-dioxide reduction is equivalent to planting 120,000 acres of new trees or converting over 58,000 automobiles to produce zero emissions.
Other benefits of owning a GeoComfort® system are:
- No use of fossil fuels means no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning
- Efficiency rating of 400 to 500%. 5X more energy efficient than standard natural gas furnaces
- A geothermal heating and cooling system can work in almost any climate
- Keeps the temperature in your home consistent, provides increased air purification and dehumidification
