If you’re considering an upgrade to a high-efficiency gas furnace, consider installing a geothermal heat pump instead. Arronco Comfort Air in Cincinnati installs WaterFurnace geothermal systems with an efficiency rating exceeding 530% compared to 98% for the most efficient gas furnaces.
Geothermal heat pump installation in Cincinnati can save dramatically on your energy bills. Plus, a geothermal system will last longer than most furnaces and air conditioners.
Get in touch with us today to learn more about switching to geothermal heat and cooling!
Geothermal systems are the ultimate in home comfort and efficiency for Cincinnati homes. A geothermal heat pump is more efficient than a furnace and can lower your utility bills immediately for most homes.
The WaterFurnace systems we install in Northern Kentucky homes can deliver more than five units of energy for every one unit of electrical energy used. That translates into an efficiency rating exceeding 530%, compared to the most efficient gas furnaces, which rate only 98% efficient.
A WaterFurnace geothermal system is so efficient most homeowners save more on monthly utility bills than they pay for the system when installation costs are added to the mortgage. Many homeowners see a return on investment of 10-20% over the life of the system.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency recognizes geothermal systems as the most environmentally friendly, cost effective and energy efficient heating and cooling technology available. Did you know installing a single geothermal unit is the environmental equivalent of planting 750 trees or removing two cars from the road?
Conventional air conditioners, furnaces and heat pumps are rated for only 12-18 years. But geothermal heating and cooling systems have an average equipment life of 25 years. The underground loop system has a rated material life of more than 100 years, according to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers.

Geothermal heating and cooling taps into the earth’s temperature several feet below the surface.
At the core of the system is a geothermal unit that serves as the home’s furnace and air conditioner. The geothermal unit relies on refrigerant and water located in an underground loop to heat or cool the air using the earth’s natural temperature
During warm weather, a geothermal heat pump collects heat in your home and moves it to the cooler 55° earth. Water in the pipes transfers heat to the refrigerant, which is cooled by the earth. The geothermal unit compresses or expands the refrigerant to increase or decrease the temperature.
During cool weather, a geothermal heat pump concentrates heat from the earth’s natural underground reservoir of heat, concentrates it, and moves it to your home in the form of warm air.
When you look at the total cost of ownership of your heating and air conditioning system, replacement cost should also be taken into the equation. Geothermal systems have an average lifespan of 24 years, compared to 12 years for air conditioners and 13 years for conventional heat pumps. And, when it comes time to replace your Geothermal system, you are only replacing the indoor unit portion, the loop lasts a lifetime!
