If you are considering installing a geothermal heat pump in Seattle, you’re in good company. Geothermal heat pumps rely on the stable, even heat from the earth to provide heating, air conditioning and hot water for your home. Here are the top 5 reasons why homeowners are choosing geothermal energy.

  • Geothermal energy is clean energy.  To produce geothermal energy, unlike fossil fuels such as coal, gas or oil, requires no combustion and produces very little greenhouse gases. 
  • Geothermal heat is reliable.  A geothermal heat pump in your Seattle home means you’ll never be without heat.  Because geothermal energy comes from the Earth’s internal heat, you’ll have a constant supply of energy regardless of the weather.
  • Geothermal energy is local.  The earth beneath you is the energy source of geothermal energy - there is no extracting and transporting of energy, no reliance of foreign oil. 
  • Geothermal energy is abundantly available.  Because geothermal energy comes from the Earth’s energy, it is a sustainable and renewable source of energy - one that has the potential to provide energy to billions of people world-wide.
  • Geothermal energy will save you money.  Although the initial cost of installing a geothermal heat pump system is pricy, over the long run using geothermal energy will save you money on your home’s heating and cooling costs.
