Time to Update Your Lime Springs Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

Regardless of whether your Lime Springs home is old or new, if you’re displeased with your present HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you upgrade to geothermal. Prices aren’t likely ever to be better. And, if you need assistance with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to talk now with Johnson Comfort Systems, Inc., the Lime Springs geothermal experts, 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. Johnson Comfort Systems, 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 be available also. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are definitely an enhancement in energy efficiency over conventional HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal retrofit. First, a newly 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! As time goes on, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’re going to have your geothermal system for a very long time.

Figure that a regular furnace, even when well maintained, might last, oh, say, 15 years. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and fabricated to last up to 30 years. And the ground loop beneath 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 from pretty much any perspective. Among its prime 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 [[capacity bundled in one orderly package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems use so little electricity,
  • a remarkably long lifespan – as described above,
  • markedly quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – given that much of your geothermal system is buried underground, and the elements of it that aren’t don’t undergo the same stresses and strains,
  • reduced repair costs – except for 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 merely transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – unlike combustion appliances, geothermal systems carry no threat of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead delivering clean, wonderfully breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that are among the most environmentally friendly of any system around – since, in the winter, a geothermal system is simply transferring heat from the ground into your home, and in the summer, it’s removing heat to keep your home cool.

So what’s holding you back? Make this the year you retrofit and upgrade your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk to Johnson Comfort Systems, Inc. now about the right way to go about it!
