Call it what you will—a retail jungle, a product avalanche, an option overload. For homeowners having to make informed choices about big-ticket items like windows and roofs, shopping is just plain exhausting.

Good news! The ENERGY STAR symbol on appliances, electronics, lighting, HVAC systems, and dozens more home essentials functions like a magic wand.  

  • It helps us know what we can save in energy and dollars.  
  • It gives us a basis for product comparison.  
  • It instills confidence and helps us decide. 

If 2024 is the year for you to replace your heating and cooling system, it’s time to familiarize yourself with ENERGY STAR ratings and what they mean for geothermal heat pumps. 


Geothermal heat pumps (a.k.a. ground source heat pumps) earn the ENERGY STAR mark by meeting strict performance criteria established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These tried, tested, and certified heat pumps use 61% less energy than traditional products, save nearly $830 annually, and save more than $9,500 over the 15-year life of the product, according to Energy Star.


Top-performing geothermal heat pumps certified as ENERGY STAR earn even greater distinction as ENERGY STAR Most Efficient. They meet defined heating and cooling levels that put them head and shoulders above other options. Think of them as “the best of the best.”  

Many heat pump models manufactured by Enertech and marketed under our three brands, GeoComfort, Tetco, and Hydron Module brands, have earned this top distinction for 2024.

In addition to ENERGY STAR certification, our geothermal systems are also certified to ISO standards by the Air Conditioning, Heating, & Refrigeration Institute (AHRI). Credentials like these give homeowners peace of mind.


Certifications like ENERGY STAR ratings save time and money as you navigate the ever-increasing flood of information in the marketplace. 

  1. They save time in the decision-making process by standardizing information and making it easier to compare products.  
  2. They often qualify our purchases for government incentives like tax credits and rebates.  
  3. The products they certify generally last longer than uncertified products. 
  4. The products they certify often have advanced technologies that reduce the need for maintenance and repair costs over time.   
  5. They help us reduce our energy consumption and lower our monthly utility bills. 
  6. They increase home value.  
  7. They ensure that energy-efficient purchases function as a hedge against rising energy costs.
