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

Regardless of whether your Mountain Home home is old or new, if you’re unhappy with the HVAC system you’ve got, 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 the up-front financial outlay, interest-free loans are generally available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to talk now with Custom Heating & Cooling Inc., the Mountain Home geothermal specialists, about what financing options you may have – that is, if you’re earnest about going with a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Custom Heating & Cooling Inc. 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 be applicable too. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are surely a step (or two, or three!) up in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

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

Bear in mind that a typical furnace, even when well maintained, might give you only 15 years of solid service. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and fabricated to last up to 30 years. And the ground loop beneath your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … starting cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a wiser choice for you in every way. Among its chief virtues are …

  • having an unceasingly – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling facility rolled up in one neat package
  • lower operating costs – since geothermal systems require so little electricity,
  • a terrifically long lifespan – as noted earlier,
  • markedly quieter operation than conventional heating and cooling systems – since the greater part of your geothermal system is buried beneath your lawn, and the elements of it that aren’t don’t experience the same stresses and strains,
  • lower repair costs – other than an unobtrusive schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance requirements with a geothermal system since its relatively few parts are simply transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – unlike combustion appliances, geothermal systems present no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead producing clean, wonderfully 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 enhance your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Consult with Custom Heating & Cooling Inc. now about the right way to go about it!
