For every 1 unit of energy used to power your geothermal system, 4 units of heat energy are supplied. That’s 400% efficient! Geothermal heat pumps can achieve this efficiency because they don’t create heat – they just transfer it.
The best fuel-based furnaces reach 97% efficiency, no match for Dandelion's hyper-efficient 2-in-1 heating and central AC heat pump. The additional energy efficiency and reduced consumption means more money in your pocket.
Geothermal provides stable, even temperatures throughout the home during the coldest winter nights or the hottest summer days. Since geothermal heat pumps rely on the constant heat inside the ground, it’s unaffected by outdoor air temperatures. No matter how cold or hot the aboveground temperature gets, the ground loops will always have access to the constant 55°F ground temperature.
The U.S. EPA says geothermal heat pumps are “the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean, and cost-effective systems for heating and cooling buildings.” Installing geothermal is the single biggest thing a homeowner can do to reduce their CO2 emissions.
Geothermal uses the natural heat energy stored in the Earth, an abundant, reliable resource that reduces greenhouse gas emissions by ≈80% compared to old-fashioned oil furnaces. To learn more about the environmental impact of geothermal click here.
A Dandelion system doesn't use natural gas, propane, or oil for operation. That means there's no combustion, flames or fumes, and no chance of carbon monoxide poisoning.
A geothermal system doesn’t bring outside air indoors regularly like conventional HVAC equipment. As a result, pollutants like pollen, dust and dirt can’t impact your indoor air quality as easily.
Studies show that homes with new, energy-efficient features sell quicker and for more money than homes with outdated, old systems. More and more buyers in today’s market want long-lasting appliances like Geothermal that reduce their energy costs and their carbon footprint.
With traditional fuel oil furnaces, foreign cartels, like OPEC, will determine the amount you’ll pay to heat your home. By installing a Geothermal system you’re taking a step towards energy independence and reducing your home’s reliance on fossil fuels.
An investment in a Dandelion system also saves homeowners precious time and money. Say goodbye to heating oil deliveries, yearly maintenance calls, and your worries about fluctuating fuel prices.
Geothermal Systems are durable, long-lasting and predictably low-maintenance.
A Dandelion geothermal system will outlast a traditional oil burning furnace. The 20+ year lifespan of the Dandelion Heat Pump and 50+ year lifespan of the ground loops ensure reliable heating and cooling for decades to come.
