Unlimited heat from your garden

It’s no wonder that geothermal heating is installed in nearly half of all new houses. Geothermal heating provides completely renewable and reasonably priced energy from your own garden that can both heat and cool the home.

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.
