No one enjoys opening up their heating bill only to discover it is way more than they projected. When you are tired of paying more than you think you should, switching to a more efficient heating system should be on the top of your priority list. One of the most efficient heating systems for a residential home is a geothermal heating system. It uses the heat stored underground to turn it into heating for your home. This is a clean and environmentally friendly way to heat your home. There are no fossil fuels being burned to create the heat that will go into your house. Here are some other great benefits you can get from a geothermal heating system. 

Longer Lifespan

One of the greatest benefits of a geothermal heat pump is the longevity of it. These systems are located indoors so they are not exposed to the weather like other heating systems are. In return, they require less maintenance throughout their life and can last up to 25 years without needing to be replaced. Even though less maintenance is needed, it is still important to have a heating contractor to assess it every so often to ensure it is working optimally. 

More Comfort

Unlike traditional heating systems, a geothermal heating system can heat the home more efficiently. You get a more balanced amount of heat without the constant bursts of heat. This helps you enjoy the comfort of your home more without having to keep adjusting the thermostat when you go from room to room. It also helps dehumidify the air during the summer so during the warm months, you can keep the humidity outside the house. 

Hot Water for Free

Who doesn't like free? If you enjoy taking hot showers, then having hot water can be a great benefit of your geothermal heating system. As the system removes heat from your home, it is transported into your water heater where you can use it as needed. Essentially, your heating bill is much lower with this type of system. 

Great Investment

While geothermal systems can be more expensive to install than other heating systems, they can provide you a great return over time that the other systems can't. After 15 years, your geothermal system can save you around $22,500. This is a bigger return than you could get on average from the S&P 500 if you were to invest in it.
