Savings: After the initial investment, the operating costs are low and a geothermal heat pump can reduce your heating bill by up to 80%. If you wait and delay switching to geothermal heating, you’ll be spending more money on a costlier form of energy every day.
Remember this: You need planning permission from the local authority to install a geothermal heat pump. Town planning or the terms of plot transfer may also affect installation work. Installation of a geothermal heat pump is not recommended if your home is connected to the district heating network.
Reducing your carbon footprint: A geothermal heat pump reduces your carbon footprint by around 7% per year. If a million Finns started using geothermal heat pumps, it would save the equivalent of 65,000 carbon footprints.
