Time to Retrofit Your Danville Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

If your Danville home’s an older one, or even if it’s relatively new, and you’re unhappy with the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you retrofit with geothermal. Prices aren’t likely ever to be better. And, if you need aid with up-front costs, interest-free loans are frequently available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be smart to talk now with Geo Climate Control, the Danville geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – that is, if you’re earnest about installing a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Geo Climate Control 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 come into play too. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are surely a step (or two, or three!) up in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal retrofit. First, a freshly installed geothermal system will lower your home’s utility bills remarkably. From the start, you could see savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! By and by, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’re going to have your geothermal system for a very long time.

Bear in mind that a conventional furnace, even when well 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 buried in your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … starting cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a wiser choice for you in every way. Among its chief assets are …

  • having aforever – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capability bundled in one trim package
  • lower operating costs – since geothermal systems use so little electricity,
  • a terrifically long lifespan – as mentioned earlier,
  • significantly quieter operation than typical heating and cooling systems – given that most of your geothermal system is buried beneath your lawn, and the elements of it that aren’t don’t have to endure the same stresses and strains,
  • reduced repair costs – other than 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 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, awesomely breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that are among the most environmentally friendly of any system available – 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 Geo Climate Control now about the best way to go about it!
