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

Regardless of whether your Mitchell 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 upgrade to geothermal. Prices probably won’t ever be better. And, if you need assistance with the up-front cash outlay, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be smart to speak now with Affordable Geothermal LLC, the Mitchell geothermal specialists, about what financing options you may have – if, in fact you’re really committed to going with a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Affordable Geothermal LLC can also advise you as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer financial relief of some kind. Tax credits may be applicable also. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are obviously an enhancement in energy efficiency over traditional HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the up-front cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a freshly installed geothermal system will significantly slash 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! In time, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’re going to own your geothermal system for a very long time.

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

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

  • having an endlessly – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capability rolled up in one neat package
  • reduced operating costs – since geothermal systems need so little electricity,
  • an incredibly long lifespan – as noted above,
  • significantly quieter operation than standard 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 put through the same stresses and strains,
  • minor repair costs – aside from an unobtrusive schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance needs 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 present no threat of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead producing clean, sublimely 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 wait any longer? Make this the year you retrofit and renew your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk with Affordable Geothermal LLC now about the right way to go about it!
