Home heating costs drop drastically with a geothermal heating system. When you consider the harsh winters that Ottawa has, that can add up to significant savings in heating! As much as beautiful Ottawa is known for its chilly winters, Ottawa is also known for its hot, hot summers and the cooling savings from a geothermal system can really add up! Geothermal heating and cooling is incredibly energy efficient. Geothermal systems transfer heat. They take the heat produced by the sun, stored by the earth and harness it to either heat or cool your home in a way that requires very little energy.
“The decision to change heating systems was based primarily on our interest in reducing our energy usage and, secondarily, on economic benefits that might derive from same. We have now lived with the system for a full winter and part of the Spring. So far, so good! Our house is now evenly heated and our heating costs have plummeted from $2,000 to $3,000, to between $600 and $800." ~ An Ottawa Family
