(NAPSI)—One way to keep your home at a comfortable temperature without your heating and cooling bills going sky high can be found underground.

Geothermal systems are among the most efficient, energy-saving, environmentally conscious ways to climate control around. A geothermal heat pump can give you years of reliable, safe home comfort at a low operating cost. Here are a few of the benefits:

Enhanced Comfort

Geothermal systems can provide precise distribution of comfortable air all year long, eliminating hot spots and cold spots. During heating, you’ll experience warm air without the hot blasts associated with ordinary gas furnaces or the cooler air of an air-source heat pump. Additionally, when cooling, geothermal systems deliver cool, dehumidified air.

Quiet

The system can be a comfort to your ears as well. Unlike ordinary air conditioners or heat pumps, there’s no noisy outdoor unit to disturb your outdoor living—or your neighbors.

Reliable

You can comfortably count on the system lasting a good long time. Unlike air conditioners and heat pumps, geothermal systems are installed indoors, so they’re not subject to the wear and tear of rain, snow, ice, debris, extreme temperatures or vandalism.

Environmentally Friendly

You can even feel comfortable about their effect on the environment. According to the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, geothermal systems are the most environmentally friendly way to heat and cool your home. They emit no carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide or other greenhouse gases, which are considered to be major contributors to environmental air pollution. They are simply a natural, green heat pump.

Lower Operating Cost

The low cost can also be a comfort. A geothermal system from WaterFurnace operates more efficiently than ordinary heating and air-conditioning systems because it can deliver an astounding five units of energy for every one unit of electrical energy used. By combining stored earth energy with safe electric power, many homeowners who have this system realize savings of up to 70 percent for heating, cooling, and hot water.
