  • 21st century geothermal technology is a proven technology that’s been worked and reworked, hammered and honed over the course of 50 years or so.
  • As it happens, there are well over one million commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling installations here in the States alone.
  • The public’s trust in geothermal heating and cooling is high, with owners grading the comfort, ease of use, and energy savings their geothermal systems provide higher than that of any other system they’ve used.
  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study reveals that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system currently available.
  • Maintenance costs are significantly lower with geothermal than with traditional central HVAC systems mostly because geothermal systems have relatively few moving mechanisms and need relatively little maintenance anyway.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems can hold up for a good 30 to 50 years, whereas standard HVAC systems generally have to be repaired or replaced after 15 years.
  • Comparing the cost of local utilities and fossil fuel to the cost of maintaining a geothermal heating and cooling system makes it abundantly clear that Lane County owners of geothermal systems often realize energy savings ranging anywhere from 30 to 70 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are recognized as being more environmentally responsible than any fossil fuel system, giving rise, by comparison, to roughly one pound less of CO2 for each hour of use.
