Innovative geothermal heat pumps tap into the earth's surface,
using the energy and relatively consistent heat found in the earth, a
pond, or well water instead of using outside air like traditional heat
pumps. Geothermal heat pumps provide both cooling and heating to your
home and are able to maintain the highest efficiency on even the coldest
winter nights or the hottest summer days.

Many people choose to go with geothermal heating and cooling systems because of their extreme energy efficiency. Heating systems are sized for homes based upon their BTUs, British Thermal Units, which is a measurement describing the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of a pound of water by one Fahrenheit degree. In Missouri due to the climate, 40-45 BTUs are required per square foot and for an average 2,000 square foot home, an 80,000-90,000 BTU furnace is necessary.
In a cost comparison of the price of 1 million BTUs for a broad range of heating systems, geothermal was significantly less than all other systems, boasting $8.79 per 1 million BTUs. High-efficiency natural gas systems were the closet to geothermal in low-cost, but are almost twice as much with 1 million BTUs costing $14.95. From there, systems get increasingly more expensive, and even traditional high energy-efficiency systems cost in the mid-$30 range for 1 million BTUs. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average American uses more than 300 million BTUs in a year.
