Benefits of Geothermal

Learn About the Benefits of Geothermal

Geothermal technology is proven technology

Geothermal heating and cooling systems have been used for over 40 years and millions of units have been installed world-wide in commercial and residential applications.

Geothermal systems are eligible for federal tax credits and state incentives

Geothermal systems keep your entire house comfortable year-round

A new geothermal heating and cooling system from ClimateMaster heats or cools on demand and provides better comfort and humidity control. All ClimateMaster systems can be easily adapted to zoned systems, providing even greater comfort year-round. Comfortworks can help answer you questions about ClimateMaster systems.

A geothermal system can be used to provide free hot water

All ClimateMaster Geothermal Systems Use Earth Pure Refrigerant

EarthPure is a non-ozone depleting refrigerant and has no significant advantages over other refrigerants that harm the environment.

All ClimateMaster geothermal systems are engineered for long equipment life

All ClimateMaster systems are factory sealed ensuring quality. With indoor installation eliminating exposure to the elements, your new system lasts longer than traditional systems that are outdoors. Each compressor is engineered to moderate the compressor load, extending system life.

Self-contained compact units

A wide variety of configurations including upflow, horizontal or downflow can be hidden from sight. Split systems are compact enough to be installed in closets.

Geothermal systems are the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly HVAC systems available

Geothermal technology uses a series of sealed piping loops buried in the ground that tap the renewable solar energy of the earth. These loops create a better heat transfer medium than traditional air source systems. It is so efficient that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has stated:

​”Geo exchange systems are the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean and cost-effective space conditioning system available today”

According to data supplied by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Geothermal Technologies, nearly 40% of all U.S. emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the result of using energy to heat, cool and provide hot water for buildings. This is about the same amount of CO2 contributed by the transportation sector. Over twenty years, the carbon footprint reduction would be equivalent to planting 120,000 acres of trees or converting over 58,000 cars to zero emission vehicles. In most areas of the United States, geothermal heat pumps had the lowest CO2 emissions and the lowest overall environmental impact of any space conditioning technology evaluated by the EPA.

No fossil fuel

  • Improves safety
  • Eliminates service lines, flues and air intakes
  • No site emissions

No outdoor units

Geothermal systems from ClimateMaster use units that are placed in a basement, garage or utility room. This helps reduce noise, improves the look of your home and leads to longer system life.
