8 Great Reasons Why ClimateMaster Geothermal is Better for the Environment
You probably already know why geothermal is so good for the environment. Over 70% of the total energy used in a typical home is for heating, cooling and water heating. With a geothermal heat pump system, up to 80% of this energy comes free directly from the earth.
This big energy savings alone is a great reason to use geothermal for your home’s heating and cooling. But as the world’s largest manufacturer of geothermal heat pumps, ClimateMaster leads the way in innovating new technology to make our heat pumps more efficient to save you more money on your home’s utility bills and make an even smaller impact on the environment.
Below are eight great reasons why ClimateMaster is the best geothermal choice for the environment.
1) ClimateMaster = Highest Efficiencies Around
The more efficient an appliance is, the less energy is used and the impact on the environment is lessened. Our Trilogy® 45 system is currently the most efficient in the industry. Traditional heating and cooling systems start and stop when they have achieved the temperature on your thermostat. Frequent starting up requires a lot of energy.
Meanwhile, the Trilogy® 45 system operates slowly and consistently, achieving peak efficiency and energy savings. The ClimateMaster Trilogy® 45 also offers hot water generation for additional energy savings. Read more about the Trilogy® system.
2) Lower Your Hot Water Costs
Domestic hot water is the second biggest user of energy in US homes today1. With full-time hot water generation offered by Trilogy® 45, you will see energy savings of over 80% in water heating, due to efficiency of over 500% compared to conventional water heaters, which have efficiencies below 100%.
While delivering ultra-high efficiencies, you don’t have to compromise on comfort. Trilogy® 45 recovers faster than conventional water heaters when using hot water in the tank, delivering more hot water, without needing a larger tank.

3) Turn Down the Noise Pollution
Not only do ClimateMaster heat pumps eliminate your use of fossil fuels for heating, they also reduce noise pollution. To ensure we are building as quiet geothermal heat pumps as possible, we design and test our heat pumps in our own certified sound lab, an industry exclusive.
Many of our heat pumps use a double compressor isolation system that eliminates vibration and an acoustically lined cabinet. Also, unlike traditional air conditioner systems, geothermal heat pumps have no noisy outdoor fans to disturb you or your neighbors.
4) Long System Life
ClimateMaster geothermal heat pumps are designed for a long service life, assuring you and the environment of energy savings for many years to come. Our heat pumps are backed by a 10-year warranty on parts. Underground pipe provided by ClimateMaster carries a 50-year limited warranty.
5) Heating and Cooling Safety and Cleanliness
ClimateMaster Geothermal systems use no flames to heat your home, so dangerous carbon monoxide and gas leaks are eliminated. In addition, our heat pumps use foil-faced insulation and a stainless steel drain pan for easy cleaning.
6) Breathe Easier
Most ClimateMaster systems use MERV 11 air filters, which deliver superior air filtration for better indoor air quality. The optional EarthPure® Air Cleaner not only removes dust and pollen with high efficiency, it also removes odors that traditional filters are unable to remove.

7) Many Years of Heating and Cooling Energy Savings
Ground source heat pumps are a reliable and proven technology that has been widely used for more than 50 years. Millions of geothermal heat pumps are in operation worldwide, keeping people comfortable in homes, schools, hospitals, military facilities and many other buildings.
8) Star Among Energy Stars
Five of ClimateMaster’s six different geothermal heat pumps have been recognized as the Most Efficient of ENERGY STAR® 2015 for both exceeding stringent efficiency requirements and for incorporating smart iGate® controls.
Any product with ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2015 status means they “represent the leading edge in energy efficient products this year.” See the ClimateMaster geothermal heat pumps on the ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2015 web page here.
As you can see, minimizing our impact on the environment is a priority to ClimateMaster. With ClimateMaster, you can rest comfortably, knowing you are saving up to 80% on energy costs while reducing your impact on the environment.
