Geothermal units provide business owners with more energy efficiency than regular HVAC systems. Studies have shown that geothermal HVAC systems decrease energy consumption—25 to 30% during cooling and 25 to 50% during heating. Those energy savings translate into significant cost savings for businesses and industries of all types and sizes.
Furthermore, geothermal units give users the ability to re-purpose the geothermal heat once it comes into the business, transferring it to a hot water heater which produces hot water at no extra energy cost. Geothermal energy also runs quieter than typical HVAC units and has a longer lifespan with less need for maintenance and repairs.
While the initial investment for a geothermal HVAC unit is higher than a traditional system, business builders can roll the cost into a mortgage. Even if the installation is not connected to a new construction project, the energy cost savings will make it worth your initial investment soon enough, because monthly energy expenditures will be lower, starting with your first month of geothermal usage.
While you may not single-handedly save the world with a new geothermal energy unit, you can feel good about doing your part to conserve energy. More and more businesses are realizing the importance of choosing to think green for their activities and operations.
Business owners realize that making greener choices impresses customers and prospects. Consumers feel good about doing business with a company that is striving to do something for the world around them. If you use geothermal energy for your business, let your customers know!
