Why Geothermal?
Most Efficient Cooling System Available
40% more efficient than traditional air conditioning systems.
Most Efficient Heating System Available
4x more efficient than heating with fuel oil, propane, or natural gas. 2x more efficient than air source heat pumps.
Increase in Home Value
Homes with the most efficient heating and cooling system sell at a 7% premium. Geothermal offers the lowest ongoing operating and maintenance expense of any HVAC.
Reduced Carbon Emissions & Improved HERS Rating
The easiest pathway to a net-zero home and significantly improve LEED project points.
Install-Cost-Neutral
Loop installation costs are often offset by the installation of propane or gas infrastructure. Geothermal tax credits for developers and homeowners are higher than any other HVAC credit.
Long-Lasting & Low Maintenance
Pump replacement every 25 years vs. 10-15 years for furnace or air source heat pumps. Ground Loops last as long as the house.
Homeowner Demand
Higher fuel prices and natural gas moratoriums have led to increased consumer demand for energy-efficient, future-ready, safer, low-maintenance, carbon-neutral homes.
Low Operating Costs
Geothermal is the most efficient heating and cooling solution on the planet. Dandelion systems are designed with no backup auxiliary heating required and can reduce energy bills by 50% or more.

How Much Can You Save With Dandelion Geothermal?

Here is an example of a typical 3,000 square foot home in the Hudson Valley, New York with natural gas/propane/air source heating and central air conditioning versus a 5-Ton Dandelion Geothermal Heating and Cooling System.

Ground Source Heat Pumps provide significantly larger energy savings as they are much more efficient at heating a home in the coldest winters, no matter what the air temperature drops to outside.

When it is 0°F outside, an Air Source Heat Pump will require about 3.6 times as much electricity as a Ground Source Heat Pump to deliver the same amount of heat. The air source heat pump will perform at 1.0 COP when the temperature drops below 0°F while the Ground Source Heat Pump will be able to maintain a 3.9 COP at 0°F.
