Time to Retrofit Your Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

If your home’s an older one, or even if it’s relatively new, and you’re unhappy with your present HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you update to geothermal. Prices will surely never be as good again. And, if you need aid with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are usually available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to speak now with Ground Loop Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc, the geothermal specialists, about what financing options you may have – if, in fact you’re sincere about upgrading to a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Ground Loop Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc can also clue you in as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some sort of financial relief. Tax credits may come into play too. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are surely an enhancement in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a recently installed geothermal system will significantly cut your home’s utility bills. Without delay, you could see savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! One day, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’ll certainly own your geothermal system for a very long time.

Consider that an ordinary furnace, even when well maintained, might hold up for 15 years of reliable service. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and built to last up to 30 years. And the ground loop buried in your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … initial cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is more advantageous for you from pretty much any angle. Among its greatest assets are …

  • having an eternally – and easily – renewable source of energy, right from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capacity wrapped in one trim package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems need so little electricity,
  • an unusually long lifespan – as described above,
  • markedly quieter operation than conventional heating and cooling systems – seeing that much of your geothermal system is buried in the earth, and the parts of it that aren’t aren’t subject to the same stresses and strains,
  • minor repair costs – other than a light schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance demands with a geothermal system since its relatively few parts are just transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – in contrast to combustion appliances, geothermal systems pose no danger of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead producing clean, wonderfully breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank among the most environmentally friendly of any system currently known – since, in the winter, a geothermal system is just transferring heat from the ground into your home, and in the summer, it’s removing heat to keep your home cool.

So why wait any longer? Make this the year you retrofit and enhance your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Consult with Ground Loop Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc now about the right way to go about it!
