Is a Geothermal System Worth it?
A geothermal system can be worth it because it can pay for itself within five to ten years, averaging monthly savings of $129 and up to 70 percent less on utility bills.
Unlike conventional systems, they extract energy from the earth’s surface, magnify it, and release it to heat and cool your home, resulting in significant cost savings. Geothermal systems are the future of energy-efficient heating and cooling, reducing energy consumption by up to 44 percent.
While geothermal energy systems have a high initial cost due to expensive buried loop systems, the long-term savings on utility bills can be up to 50 percent compared to traditional heating and cooling systems. That would mean the savings on your utility bill would cover the cost of your geothermal system within three years!
Lower service costs also make geothermal energy a low-maintenance option. Geothermal systems can heat and cool a 2,000-square-foot home for as little as $1 per day and can also supplement conventional water heaters, saving up to 30 percent on hot water costs. Also, we offer financing options for the upfront cost of installation.

Geothermal heating and cooling systems tap into the constant temperature of the Earth just below the surface, which remains relatively consistent throughout the year. They consist of a loop of pipes buried in the ground, a heat pump, and a duct system.
During the winter, the heat pump extracts heat from the Earth through the loop of pipes and compresses it to a higher temperature, which is then used to heat the air that is distributed throughout your home via the duct system. During the summer, the process is reversed, and the heat pump takes the heat from your home and transfers it back to the Earth, effectively cooling your home.
Geothermal systems are efficient, low maintenance, and a great overall investment due to their cost effectiveness. They are also very durable with a lifespan of up to 25 years for the heat pump and up to 50 years for the ground loop.
The long-term savings on energy bills and the durability of the system make geothermal systems a worthwhile investment for homeowners in Indianapolis who are looking for a long-term solution for their heating and cooling needs.
