Geothermal Savings and Costs Questions

How will I save money with a geothermal heat pump?

Geothermal heat pumps save money, both in operating costs and maintenance costs. Investments can be recouped in as little as three years. There is positive cash flow, since the energy savings usually exceeds payments on the system.

How much does a geothermal system cost?

The initial investment for geothermal systems is greater than that of a conventional system. However, when you consider the operating costs of a geothermal heating, cooling and water heating system, energy savings quickly offset the initial difference in purchase price.

How long will the geothermal pipe loop last?

Geothermal systems use the industry standard high density polyethylene pipe. This pipe is often times guaranteed by the manufacturer to be free from leaks for 55 years and is expected to last beyond 100 years.

What other costs are there besides the geothermal system?

You can expect an installation charge for any electrical work, ductwork, water hook-up, and other provisions or adaptations to your home that are required. Your installer can estimate these costs in advance.

How would increased use of geothermal systems affect electricity costs and availability?

The reduced peak load requirements would allow utilities to serve more customers and to lower fixed costs per customer, thus offsetting some increased variable costs. This would result in less cost per kilowatt, since fixed investment for new capacity is high.

What kind of tax incentives are there for installing a new geothermal system?

See out Geothermal Tax Incentives page.
