Replacing Your Direct Exchange Geothermal System
If you’re a homeowner with an existing direct exchange (DX) geothermal system, like Earthlinked, Advanced Geothermal, Great Air Comfort System, or US Power GSDX system for example, you might have encountered recommendations to abandon your current loop field in favor of a less efficient heat pump. However, it’s essential to assess the true value of your DX system before making any decisions.
First and foremost, let’s talk about the monetary aspect. Your DX geothermal loop field holds a significant value, ranging from $10,000 to $20,000. This valuable asset should not be discarded without careful consideration.
Now, let’s address the efficiency concerns raised by some technicians. It is important to note that DX geothermal systems, when properly installed and maintained, can deliver exceptional performance and energy savings. Instead of replacing your entire system, it’s worth exploring the option of upgrading it to a newer DX geothermal system that offers even better efficiency and enhanced features.
Studies have shown a geothermal system is significantly more efficient than an air source heat pump, so if you’re considering replacing your geothermal system with an air source heat pump, it is safe to assume that your annual heating and cooling cost will significantly increase due to the lower efficiency ratings of even the most efficient air source heat pumps.
By opting for a seamless transition to a new DX geothermal unit, you can preserve the investment you’ve made in your loop field while enjoying the benefits of the latest DX technology. Improved efficiency, increased comfort, and continued energy savings await homeowners who choose this path.
It’s time to shift your thought from abandoning perfectly good DX geothermal systems, to maximizing their value. As a homeowner, you deserve the opportunity to explore all available options and make an informed decision based on your unique circumstances.
Remember, your DX geothermal system has served you well and the thousands of dollars it has saved you over the years. With the right upgrade, it can continue to provide efficient heating and cooling for years to come. Embrace the potential for a seamless transition to a new DX geothermal system and unlock the full benefits of advanced technology in your home.
