Fowler Heating and Cooling


The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, adopted in October 2008 allows for a 30% tax credit for costs associated with Energy Star qualified geothermal heat pumps. The credit applies to geothermal equipment placed in service through December 31, 2016.

How Much Can I Save?

The enviromental impact of going Geothermal is huge! But it also impacts your pocketbook. How much can you really save? Well, your exact savings will be determined by many variables, such as your climate, thermostat setting and electric rate, among others. Most homeowners will see a reduction of 30 to 70 percent in their heating and cooling costs.

A study by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency showed that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle cost of all heating and cooling systems currently on the market. Lower maintenance costs and longer life expectancy of geothermal units should certainly be taken into consideration when determining true savings.

Benefits of Geothermal Systems

  • Safe - Flammable fossil fuels are not used to operate geothermal units. Because there is no combustion, there is no chance of explosion, hazardous fumes or risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Lower Operating Costs - Geothermal systems have efficiency ratings of 400 to 500 percent. An efficiency rating is the ratio of heat actually generated versus the amount of energy used to produce the heat. A rating of less than 100 percent means you are losing heat that you are paying for. This loss is typically caused by energy consumption required for the combustion process of a fossil fuel furnace. The most efficient natural gas furnaces cannot compete at a rating of only 95 percent.
  • Quiet - Conventional air conditioners and heat pumps require noisy outdoor equipment. Geothermal systems do not. In fact, GeoComfort Compass SeriesTM units feature a patent-pending cabinet design that isolates the unit?s compressor, all but eliminating any rattling or vibration caused by system operation.
  • Bonus Hot Water - Geothermal systems have the capability of capturing reclaimed heat during heating and cooling modes and using it to heat domestic water. This application can reduce the water heating cost of a four-person household by 50 to 60 percent.
  • Flexibility - A geothermal installation is an excellent heating and cooling solution for nearly any situation. Geothermal systems perform well in cool northern climates as well as warm southern conditions, in homes small, large, new, existing and every home in between.
  • Unmatched Comfort - Geothermal systems provide superior air comfort. They demonstrate increased air purification and dehumidification versus conventional systems. In addition to improved air quality, geothermal systems keep indoor air temperatures at consistent levels, eliminating hot and cold spots that are typical of all conventional systems. For ultimate comfort, zoning allows for distinctive temperature adjustments in different areas of your home.
  • Longer Life Cycle You can expect your geothermal system to provide an average of 20 to 24 years of reliable comfort and savings. In comparison, the average life cycle of a conventional system is 13 to 15 years.
