Geothermal systems provide a variety of advantages over conventional systems including financial savings, increased safety, improved air quality and comfort.
75% of geothermal energy is free. After installation, you could see a simple payback of capital costs in less than 5 years.
Because they are installed indoors, geothermal systems have a longer life cycle (25 years for the mechanical equipment and 50-plus years for the in ground loop). Compare this to the 15-20 year life expectancy for traditional HVAC equipment, and geothermal just makes sense.
With absolutely no combustion, geothermal systems do not need annual service. Air filters should be cleaned or changed regularly.
With no onsite combustion, geothermal systems do not produce carbon monoxide—your family will enjoy enhanced home safety and peace of mind.
Typically, geothermal units do not overheat or overcool and provide a very consistent temperature. Standard systems feature humidity control, and full dehumidification using the ClimaDry option. These systems are easily matched to energy recovery ventilation for efficient use of fresh outdoor air.
Geothermal systems provide more consistent heating/cooling than conventional equipment, resulting in an extremely comfortable home environment. How? Conventional systems rely on high-heat sources that require combustion. This means heat is delivered in bursts. With geothermal, a lower temperature heat source constantly provides heat to your home. Fewer bursts. Reduced noise. More comfort.
A NextEnergy system makes use of the largest source of energy available—the ground beneath your feet.
