Is a Geothermal System Worth the Investment?

When you’re looking for the best comfort solutions for your West Chester home, you want a system that is strong, efficient, and reliable. And if you’ve spoken to an HVAC professional, you’ve probably been told that a geothermal heat pump system is just the thing you’re looking for. But just as often as not, suggestions can come off as just a sales pitch, so it can be hard to tell when you’re really getting the right answer. Want to know the truth about geothermal systems? If so, Signature HVAC can let you in on it.

Is a Geothermal System Worth The Investment?

The hardest thing to accept about a geothermal heat pump system is that the average cost of initial installation is higher, and a good bit so, than a traditional central system or even an air source heat pump. It’s this upfront cost that steers many buyers away. But if you want the truth, the investment is actually well worth it. In fact, the initial investment isn’t even as bad as you might expect! How so? Well, let’s get a bit more in depth about…

Why Geothermal Heat Pumps Are Worth It

Essentially it’s all in the perks and benefits. It is, in fact, about what is unique to a geothermal system that makes it worth it.

  • Geothermal heat pumps are the most efficient. A high efficiency furnace or central system achieves around 90-98% efficiency on fuel or energy consumption. That’s pretty good, for sure. But geothermal? A 300% or more efficiency! How does that work, you might think. Well, the number cited represents the amount of thermal energy being generated per use of unit of fuel, which in the case of a geothermal heat pump, means that they are generating more than they are using, whereas a furnace, even of the highest caliber, doesn’t quite use the fuel source to 100%.
  • A geothermal heat pump saves on heating and cooling costs. Your average home equipped with a geothermal heat pump will save around 10-15% per month on heating and cooling costs, and in many cases that percentage is much higher. That means over time your geothermal system begins to pay for itself!
  • Federal tax credits cushion your investment. That big number can seem daunting, but actually installing geothermal systems is supported by federal credit, earning you up to 30% back on your purchase. With this in mind, a geothermal system is actually pretty close in cost to any other system, and when you factor in how much you save a month, means you’re going to be gaining within a short sum of years.

In the end a geothermal system is exactly what we mentioned before—an investment. It just so happens that it is an exceptionally good one! If you plan on living in your home for five, 10, or more years, we say a geothermal system will absolutely in no way disappoint!

The process was very customer focused starting from Scott McHale's engagement to organize the project to replace our old A/C, to an professional job John & Matt had done in installation, and Bob Seeger'r post installation service to troubleshoot the air flow damper, great job."

"Bob Seeger was our technician this time around. His level of professionalism was exceptional - it really stood out! Overall we are very happy that we switched to Signature several years ago!"

-Mark Kenney

"The Signature techs who come out to our house are always top-notch professionals. Very courteous, careful, and thorough. They always provide great explanations of the work that they are doing. I never feel like I am being pressured into unnecessary work or equipment replacement (like I used to feel with Service Experts). Today, Wade was the tech who came out. He was here exactly on time at 8am, and was done within an hour. Great work and another great service experience from Signature! Update 9/27/2016 - Today Bob Seeger came out to service our system in preparation for the winter. I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and courtesy. Before he started, we sat down and he clearly explained what he would be doing as part of the maintenance, and we agreed upon the need to replace the filter on the main unit, and also to perform humidifier maintenance as part of the work. After the work was complete he made recommendations for overall system enhancements that we should consider. Signature really has top-notch people working for them, and I continue to be extremely happy that we switched over to them several years ago."

-Mark Kenney

"Bob Seeger was our person to service our furnace and water heater. He showed me a problem with our water heater that could have been a major problem. He was very honest, great and so efficient! He fixed the problem. I am kind of hoping he will be the one to work with in the spring."

-Debbie Kaba

"Always feel confident with the work performed by Danny from Signature."

-William Stolting

"Bob was quite knowledgeable of the type of geothermal system that I have in my house. Before completing the annual maintenance/tune-up that I had requested, he asked relevant questions about my geothermal system (e.g., date of installation, last service, temperature preference, electric usage, etc.). After inspecting and servicing my system, Bob explain service that my system needed now and recommendations that would benefit my system. He explained the options in a non-pressured approach, as well as, the benefit in joining Signature HVAC's service plan which was helpful. Throughout the service visit, Bob was courteous, friendly and respectful. My wife and I were very satisfied and we plan to continue to use Signature HVAC in the future."

-John Schmitt

"Bob did an excellent job. He showed up on time, was courteous, and respectful. I recommend using Bob S from Signature Heating and Air-conditioning."

-Dennis Carlson

"Great service as always. Always prompt and knowledgeable."

-Adam Lusk

"Bob was very professional and informative on the heating & air condition job at my house. He is a very nice and caring person! Thank you!"

-Colleen Esgro

"Your whole team is outstanding."

-John price

"Daniel Cross (Signature) completed a thorough and quick fall service on my heating systems. What I liked best about Danny is that he spoke to me as a knowledgeable customer rather than treating me like a clueless homeowner. So refreshing to be treated with respect by an HVAC provider! He had an opportunity to "upsell" me on a service, but was honest and told me that it wasn't valuable in my situation. I would certainly trust him to service my equipment again, and would definitely recommend him to a friend."

-Susan Wentz

"Thanks again for walking me through the process and pointing out what was going on in my system. Mold be gone! Professional and friendly service. Thanks for your help."

-Mia Bosna

"Travis is another courteous, fine professional working for you!"

-John price

-Ric DeAngelis

"We are very pleased with Signature and their very knowledgeable Technicians. We will be continuing our By-Annual service/tune-up with them...."

-Ric DeAngelis

"I have used Signature for about 10 years now. They provide excellent service. Bob Seeger was my most recent technician and he was on time, polite, informative, and technically proficient. I highly recommend signature for your HVAC needs. I have geothermal, and they are excellent at this technology."

-Charlie Phillips

"Mike B came out for the biannual check of the upstairs system--we had replaced the downstairs system in June---we are very satisfied. Mike was thorough, very professional, answered all my (sometimes inane) questions and kept the house clean. Good job Mike and thanks."
