  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study discloses that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system marketed today.
  • Maintenance costs are conspicuously lower with geothermal than with conventional central HVAC systems primarily because geothermal systems have very few moving mechanical parts and require very little maintenance to begin with.
