Geothermal FAQ: How do geothermal systems protect the environment?

Geothermal systems conserve natural resources by providing climate control very efficiently, thus also lowering emissions. Since the heat is extracted from the earth, no fossil fuels are burned to generate heat. Geothermal systems also minimize ozone layer destruction by using factory-sealed refrigeration systems, which will seldom or never have to be recharged.

Geothermal FAQ: What are the environmental benefits of geothermal system?

Geothermal systems conserve energy. Because they move heat that already exists rather than burning something to create heat, they reduce the amount of toxic emissions in the atmosphere. They use renewable energy from the sun, and because the system doesn't rely on outside air, it keeps the air inside of buildings cleaner and free from pollens, outdoor pollutants, mold spores, and other allergens.

Geothermal FAQ: In extremely cold climates, are additional heat sources necessary?

All systems require an emergency back up. Heat pumps can provide all the heat necessary even in the coldest weather. An economic analysis by your contractor should dictate what portion of the heat should be provided by the heat pump and what portion by auxiliary means.
