When we chose to go with the geothermal heat pump for the heating and cooling in our home, we weren’t thinking so much about the feel of the heating.
And now that we’re living with it, the heating feel in our house is about the best I’ve ever experienced.
I certainly can’t think of a place that was more cozy than our home on a cold winter day. For sure, the geothermal radiant floor heating has our old gas furnace beat all to pieces. And that’s really no reflection on that gas furnace. It did really well for a lot of years. When we installed it after buying the place, we were super pleased with both efficiency and heating strength. And when we sold the house, we replaced that gas furnace with the same make but with more HVAC technology. No we wanted a geothermal heat pump for two reasons. The first is that it’s about the most efficient and sustainable residential HVAC there is. Second, the geo heat pump goes forever. Well, not actually forever but on average, it’ll go like 35 years. And that’s a whole lot of savings on the utility bill. It almost pays for itself really with all that savings. And really, I love the idea that we are doing our part to leave a smaller carbon footprint. I just wish that climate change was not such a divisive issue because all of us ought to do our part. But when I flip the thermostat over to heating, that radiant floor heating creates the most amazing heating atmosphere ever. It’s still hard to believe that it’s far cleaner and cheaper than a gas furnace.
