Many people these days are opting for greener sources of energy. Geothermal heat pumps have become very popular around the country. They suit all climate-types of the US. However, the prices and installation of these units are a bit towards the steeper side. The price of geothermal heating system varies depending on the type of loop system, usually either vertical or horizontal. On an average, a typical home of 2500 square feet, with a heating load of 60,000 BTU and a cooling load of 60,000 BTU will cost between $20,000 and $25,000 to install. This is almost double the cost of a conventional heating, cooling, and hot water system. But this cost will be offset by cuts in utility bills that could go up to 70%. Moreover federal government offers a tax benefit of 30% with no limits for installation of these units.
