How Do I Establish Whether Geothermal Heating and Cooling Is Right for My Beatrice Home?

picture of house with geothermal loopYou might well ask someone who still hasn’t gotten the word about geothermal heating and cooling if they’ve been living underground for the last 50 years or so. Of course, that person would probably miss the irony of your question, considering that the source of geothermal heating and cooling lies underground.

Nowadays, though, most Beatrice homeowners understand at least a bit about the rewards of a geothermal HVAC system. More of them are looking into one, 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:

  • Switching out your old-fashioned HVAC system with 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 you could own.
  • Thanks to the options geothermal systems give you – package units, split systems, and duel-fuel systems, to begin with – you can better insure that the system you choose is the most efficient and effective for your Beatrice home.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are designed, engineered, built, and installed for generations of trustworthy performance. The fact that they have so 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 located indoors, out of the weather, makes a considerable difference.
  • A geothermal heating and cooling system can be installed any time you want. The weather and the temperature are no obstacle, and no further fees are charged for “seasonal reasons.”
  • Only a teeny, tiny bit of your yard need be set aside for a geothermal heating and cooling system. And what space is required is discreet; your home and landscaping will lose none of the “curb appeal” you strive to sustain.
  • As if all this weren’t incentive enough, geothermal heating and cooling systems are becoming ever more affordable – even without the current availability of federal tax credits and rebates. Enhancements in system design and manufacturing processes as well as increased competition in the marketplace are what’s helping drive costs down.
 
Still, as irresistable as all this is, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a hefty investment. Whether or not it’s the ideal investment for you is dependent not only on your bank account but also on such factors as the land space available for the heat-exchange loop and the current ductwork in your home if you’re retrofitting.
