Gas vs. GeoThermal Pool Heaters
We’re here this morning at VillageWalk to discuss the difference between GeoThermal heating and gas heating, which they used to have here. In 2008, VillageWalk asked us for an estimate to convert their pool heating system from gas to GeoThermal. GeoThermal pool heating works by simply transferring heat from the nearby lake water to the pool water through the air conditioning cycle. The two waters never mix, and it’s one of the most efficient ways to heat the pool.
“If you want constant heat and don’t want to pay for the constantly rising price of gas, GeoThermal is the best choice.”
Before, they heated their two pools with gas, and the cost to do so was $118,850 every year. Now, the cost to heat these pools to the same temperature using GeoThermal heat pumps is about $35,000. Since we installed this system back in 2008, they’ve saved $1.5 million, and they’re no longer burning fossil fuels.
These heaters have been going strong for 13 years. Every year, we do maintenance on them to make sure everything is working smoothly. They have about a 15- to 20-year serviceable life, which far exceeds that of gas heaters and even air source heat pumps. If you want constant heat and don’t want to pay for the constantly rising price of gas, GeoThermal is the best choice you can make.
Give us a call at (800) 881-4328, and we’ll come out to provide a no-cost estimate and show you the savings that you will receive if you switch over to a GeoThermal heating system. We look forward to hearing from you.
