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 dissatisfied 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 up-front costs, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be wise to consult 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 upgrade in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal retrofit. First, a newly installed geothermal system will lower your home’s utility bills significantly. 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’ll certainly have your geothermal system for a very long time.

Figure that a regular furnace, even when conscientiously maintained, might hang in there for 15 years of reliable service. 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 in every way. 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 wrapped up in one orderly package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems use so little electricity,
  • a remarkably long lifespan – as noted above,
  • markedly quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – since 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 – besides a modest 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 are you waiting for? Make this the year you retrofit and upgrade your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk with Johnson Comfort Systems, Inc. now about the right way to go about it!
