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

If your Mitchell 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 upgrade to geothermal. Prices probably won’t ever be better. And, if you need assistance with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are typically available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be well-advised to speak now with Affordable Geothermal LLC, the Mitchell geothermal specialists, about what financing options you may have – particularly if you’re really committed to going with a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Affordable Geothermal LLC 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 be available also. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are obviously an upgrade 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. 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’d better believe it, you’re going to own your geothermal system for a very long time.

It’s generally conceded that a traditional furnace, even when correctly maintained, might give you only 15 years of reliable service. 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 beneficial 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 wrapped up in one neat package
  • reduced operating costs – since geothermal systems run on so little electricity,
  • an incredibly long lifespan – as described above,
  • significantly quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – seeing that much of your geothermal system is buried in the earth, and the components of it that aren’t aren’t put through the same stresses and strains,
  • reduced repair costs – other than 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 – unlike 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 rank 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 to Affordable Geothermal LLC now about the best way to go about it!
