Upgrading to a geothermal heat pump

My husband and I chose to upgrade our HVAC equipment as the current unit failed.

We had been living with a central HVAC unit for years.

The two of us hated it. It was annoying that every room had to be the same temperature. I didn’t like that I had such a large, visible indoor air handler too. Once the HVAC died I started looking at ductless options. I wanted something smaller, cleaner, and less visible. I then learned that a heat pump system can be buried underground. This geothermal heat pump then uses the ground temperature to achieve the setting on the thermostat. Think about it. In the winter the ground is a lot warmer than the air. The same is true for cold air in the summer. I am getting cleaner, free air when I turn on my geothermal heat pump. I also can have zone control due to it being a ductless option. No more heating and cooling unused rooms. No more complaining about being too hot and too cold due to someone messing with the thermostat. Another pro of the geothermal heat pump is that it requires very little maintenance and service. I call for geothermal service when I think about it, which isn’t very often. For the most part, it runs itself and I just enjoy the energy savings. Finding an HVAC business that handles geothermal heat pumps was the only snag. It is quite specialized and requires truly knowledgeable contractors to do the installation, repair, and service.
