  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study reveals that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system currently being marketed.
  • Maintenance costs are noticeably lower with geothermal than with traditional central HVAC systems chiefly because geothermal systems have relatively few moving mechanical parts and require relatively little maintenance anyway.
