GEOTHERM DISTRIBUTION SA provide turnkey projects for heating and cooling systems using geothermal heat pumps.
The installation of a geothermal heating and cooling system is significantly more complex. It involves drilling, digging and laying pipes, all of which are expensive and time consuming. On the other hand, the benefits are greater. By using geothermal heat pumps, we often have access more ideal temperature differences.
One of the key aspects of geothermal heat pumps is that they use the temperatures below the Earth’s surface, and not the outside ambient air, which is what air source heat pumps use. The below-surface temperatures are significantly more stable than those above – even throughout the different seasons of the year.
Also note that we can have the possibly to finance a geothermal heat pump (and the rest of the system) for you project. Our specialist will be able to help you to pick the ideal system for your home or business.
What is the payback time of a geothermal heating and cooling system? Let’s look at a few typical numbers:
When we are estimating the initial costs of a geothermal heating and cooling system we have to take the system type, size, labor costs and drilling conditions into account.
The ground loop of the system (the part of the system that sits below the surface) is usually the most expensive.
The rates are usually somewhere between 1,000 EUR and 3,000 EUR per installed ton for the ground loop alone.
The total costs of a geothermal heating and cooling systems for home and small-scale commercial use usually ends up somewhere in the range10,000 EUR -25,000 EUR.
High efficiency rates combined with low operating and maintenance costs, annual energy savings is typically between 30% and 60%.
Numbers show that homeowners save 30-70% on heating and 20-50% on cooling costs by using geothermal heat pumps compared to other conventional systems. This translates to roughly 1500 EUR to 2,500 EUR annual savings.
After a certain amount you hit a threshold where saved up money equals costs. This is known as the payback time and is usually somewhere between 5 to 7 years. Compare this to the warranty of a geothermal heating and cooling system, and investing in geothermal for your house or business becomes a no-brainer. Not to mention the obvious environmental benefits that comes with an installation like this.
