What Is a Geothermal HVAC System?
A geothermal HVAC system is a type of heat pump unit that cycles fluid through a complex series of underground pipes. As the fluid is cycled through this underground network, heat is transferred from ambient air in the building to the ground and vice versa. The system provides heating in the winter and cooling in the summer.

Geothermal HVAC FAQs
Are geothermal HVAC systems worth it?
Installing a geothermal unit in the home comes at a high cost — typically between $15,000 and $20,000.
However, homeowners can recoup the cost of initial installation through energy savings to the tune of a 30% to 70% reduction in their utility bills. Homeowners can expect to see a return on their initial investment in seven to eight years.
What’s the life expectancy of a geothermal HVAC system?
A geothermal system’s life span is far greater than the traditional HVAC system, with most geothermal units lasting 25 to 50 years.
What are the pros and cons of geothermal heat pumps?
One of the biggest concerns with geothermal heat pumps is their initial cost. However, initial investment aside, these systems provide some of the greatest benefits to homeowners, including:
- 30%–70% reduction in energy bills
- Longer system life span
- Increased comfort
- Safer HVAC operation
Can geothermal heat pumps be used for cooling?
Yes! Geothermal heat pumps have dual functions and can both heat and cool your home. The term “heat pump” can be misleading; it’s important to know that your geothermal heat pump is just as effective for cooling your home in summer as it is for heating your home in winter.
Geothermal heat pumps are more energy-efficient than traditional AC units and will keep your energy bills lower.
Is a heat pump considered geothermal?
A geothermal heat pump is a type of high-efficiency heat pump. Geothermal heat pumps use the earth for heat energy, whereas traditional heat pumps use circulating air.
Geothermal heat pumps require vertical and horizontal pipes to be installed in your yard and will use water to circulate in the pipes and transfer heat energy from the earth.
A traditional heat pump uses the outside air and refrigerant coils for heat energy. Geothermal heat pumps tend to require less energy, making them more energy-efficient.
