Time to Retrofit Your Mt. Pleasant Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

If your Mt. Pleasant home’s an older one, or even if it’s relatively new, and you’re displeased with the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you advance to geothermal. Prices won’t likely ever be better. And, if you need assistance with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be smart to speak now with Moline Heating & Cooling, the Mt. Pleasant geothermal authority, about what financing options you may have – especially if you’re really committed to going with a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Moline 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 too. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are obviously an enhancement in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal enhancement. First, a recently installed geothermal system will slash your home’s utility bills considerably. In no time at all, 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 have your geothermal system for a very long time.

Consider that an ordinary furnace, even when rigorously maintained, might last, oh, say, 15 years. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and built 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 more beneficial for you in every way. Among its greatest assets are …

  • having a continuously – and easily – renewable source of energy, right from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capability bundled in one tidy package
  • lower operating costs – since geothermal systems use so little electricity,
  • a terrifically long lifespan – as mentioned previously,
  • significantly quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – since most of your geothermal system is buried beneath your lawn, and the parts of it that aren’t aren’t subject to the same stresses and strains,
  • reduced repair costs – aside from an undemanding schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance necessities 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 pose no threat of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead producing clean, wonderfully breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank among the most environmentally friendly of any system currently known – since, in the winter, a geothermal system is merely transferring heat from the ground into your home, and in the summer, it’s removing heat to keep your home cool.

So what else could you need? Make this the year you retrofit and refresh your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Contact Moline Heating & Cooling now about the proper way to go about it!
