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

Old home or new, if you’re unhappy with your current HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you move up to geothermal. Prices aren’t likely ever to be better. And, if you need help with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are usually available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to consult now with Fairfield Heating & Cooling, the Central geothermal specialists, about what financing options you may have – if, in fact you’re really committed to upgrading to a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Fairfield Heating & Cooling can also clue you in as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some kind of financial relief. Tax credits may come into play as well. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are unmistakably a step (or two, or three!) up in energy efficiency over the more customary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the installation cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a freshly installed geothermal system will significantly slash your home’s utility bills. You could see immediate savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! Over time, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’re going to enjoy your geothermal system for a very long time.

It’s generally conceded that a regular furnace, even when well maintained, might last maybe 15 years. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and engineered to last up to 30 years. And the ground loop beneath your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … initial cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is more beneficial for you in every way. Among its strongest virtues are …

  • having aforever – and easily – renewable source of energy, straight from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capacity bundled in one trim package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems require so little electricity,
  • a terrifically long lifespan – as described earlier,
  • significantly quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – given that the greater part of your geothermal system is buried in the earth, and the portions of it that aren’t don’t undergo the same stresses and strains,
  • reduced repair costs – other than a light schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance necessities with a geothermal system since its relatively few parts are only transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – in contrast to combustion appliances, geothermal systems carry no threat of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead delivering clean, awesomely breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that are among the most environmentally friendly of any system available – 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 hold out? Make this the year you retrofit and renew your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Consult with Fairfield Heating & Cooling now about the right way to go about it!
