Geothermal heat pumps are the best heating and cooling option for homeowners looking to build a new home. The upfront costs for a new construction geothermal system are usually less, and the initial outlay can be included in the monthly mortgage payment. The increases in mortgage costs are typically offset by the decreased operating costs of our geothermal systems — providing a net positive cashflow. Geothermal heat pumps are one of the most efficient, energy-saving, environmentally-friendly choices you can make for your new home.
Also, a great tip for homeowners looking to install geothermal in a new home is to make the house envelope as tight as possible. The more insulation and better windows and doors a homeowner includes in his or her home, the less capacity they will need for heating and cooling. Smaller capacity requires smaller equipment, and results in a reduced investment by the homeowner.
