How Do I Figure Out Whether Geothermal Heating and Cooling Is Right for My Lime Springs Home?

picture of house with geothermal loopYou might well ask someone who still hasn’t heard about geothermal heating and cooling if they’ve been living underground for a few decades. Of course, that person would undoubtedly miss the irony of your question, since the source of geothermal heating and cooling lies underground.

Anymore, though, most Lime Springs homeowners know at least something about the advantages of a geothermal HVAC system. More of them are mulling one over, too – either as a replacement or upgrade to their existing system or as the system they install in that new home they’ll soon have under construction.

Thinking about converting to geothermal yourself? Well, the benefits certainly are seductive:

  • Exchanging your old, familiar HVAC system for a geothermal one could help you cut your heating and cooling costs by as much as 80 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are remarkably energy efficient. That, in addition to the fact that they don’t fight the environment, but work with it, make them the most environmentally friendly HVAC systems around.
  • Thanks to the options geothermal systems provide – package units, split systems, and duel-fuel systems, first off – you can better assure that the system you choose is the most efficient and effective for your Lime Springs home.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are built for generations of trusty operation. The fact that they have few parts, require less maintenance, have vertical or horizontal loops installed underground or in ponds or wells, and call for the heat-exchange equipment to be installed indoors, out of the weather, makes a considerable difference.
  • A geothermal heating and cooling system can be installed any time of the year. The weather and the temperature are no handicap, and no added fees are charged for “seasonal reasons.”
  • Very little of your yard space is necessary for a geothermal heating and cooling system. And what space is needed is unobtrusive; the “curb appeal” of your home won’t be ruined in the least.
  • As if all this weren’t incentive enough, geothermal heating and cooling systems are becoming increasingly affordable – even without the current availability of federal tax credits and rebates. Advances in system design and manufacturing processes as well as growing competition in the marketplace are what’s helping drive costs down.
 
Nevertheless, as attractive as all this may be, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a major investment. Whether or not it’s the best investment for you depends not only on your financial situation but also on such factors as the land space available for the heat-exchange loop and the present ductwork in your home if you’re retrofitting.
