Geothermal Energy: The World’s Greenest Heating and Cooling System

Looking for an efficient, cost effective, and environmentally friendly heating/cooling system? A geothermal heat pump is the greenest way to go. Learn the facts about geothermal energy.

  • An EPA study of energy efficiency concluded geothermal energy is the most environmentally friendly heating/cooling system.

  • The United States National Renewable Energy Laboratory concluded that geothermal energy is more efficient and cost-effective compared with conventional residential systems.

  • Available everywhere in the United States, geothermal energy can be found underground virtually anywhere.

  • Geothermal cost savings can be increased by geothermal energy incentives available from federal, state, local, and utility sources.

Energy and cost savings of geothermal heat pumps will vary by region and type of conventional system they’re compared with. But the energy cost of geothermal versus conventional HVAC systems will always be lower — and the geothermal system will always be greener.

Governmental agencies like the EPA and Department of Energy, consumer and industry groups, and geothermal system owners all agree: geothermal heating and cooling is considered the world’s greenest and most energy-efficient.
