Comparing Geothermal Heat Pumps to Fossil Fuel-Based Systems


When considering combustion, using a renewable resource, and cost-effectiveness, a geothermal heating and cooling system is the clear winner over a fossil fuel-based system. This underutilized technology has the potential to be an important factor in reducing every country's dependence on foreign oil while at the same time reducing air pollution, not to mention saving the homeowner money year after year.

GHP = geothermal heat pump
Fossil Fuels = fuel oil, natural gas, propane, coal
