Time to Upgrade Your Greene County Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

If your Greene County home’s an older one, or even if it’s relatively new, and you’re dissatisfied with the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you move up to geothermal. Prices probably won’t ever be better. And, if you need assistance with up-front costs, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be well-advised to consult now with Kool-Temp Heating & Cooling Inc., the Greene County geothermal authority, about what financing options you may have – particularly if you’re really committed to upgrading to a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Kool-Temp Heating & Cooling Inc. can also clue you in as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer financial relief of some kind. Tax credits may come into play as well. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are surely a step (or two, or three!) up in energy efficiency over conventional HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the up-front cost of a geothermal retrofit. First, a freshly installed geothermal system will cut your home’s utility bills appreciably. You could see immediate savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! Gradually, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’d better believe it, you’re going to own your geothermal system for a very long time.

Bear in mind that a typical furnace, even when well maintained, might last around 15 years. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and engineered to last up to 30 years. And the ground loop dug into your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … preliminary cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a wiser choice for you no matter how you look at it. Among its greatest assets are …

  • having aforever – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capacity wrapped up in one neat package
  • reduced operating costs – since geothermal systems need so little electricity,
  • an exceptionally long lifespan – as mentioned above,
  • markedly quieter operation than typical heating and cooling systems – since most of your geothermal system is buried outside in the yard, and the components of it that aren’t aren’t put through the same stresses and strains,
  • lower repair costs – besides a modest schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance needs with a geothermal system since its relatively few parts are merely 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 delivering clean, marvelously breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank among the most environmentally friendly of any system you could find – 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 what’s the delay? Make this the year you retrofit and enhance your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk to Kool-Temp Heating & Cooling Inc. now about the best way to go about it!
