  • A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study shows that geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle costs of any other heating and cooling system now marketed.
  • Maintenance expenses are notably lower with geothermal than with traditional central HVAC systems primarily because geothermal systems have so few moving mechanical parts and require so little maintenance in the first place.
