There’s some good news, too, about the installation cost of a geothermal retrofit. First, a newly installed geothermal system will cut your home’s utility bills appreciably. You could see immediate savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! One day, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’ll certainly enjoy your geothermal system for a very long time.

Bear in mind that a typical 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 beneath your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … initial cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is more advantageous for you no matter how you look at it. Among its prime virtues are …

  • having an endlessly – and easily – renewable source of energy, straight from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capability bundled in one trim package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems use so little electricity,
  • a terrifically long lifespan – as mentioned previously,
  • conspicuously quieter operation than conventional heating and cooling systems – since most of your geothermal system is buried in the earth, and the components of it that aren’t aren’t put through the same stresses and strains,
  • reduced repair costs – besides a light schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance necessities with a geothermal system since its relatively few parts are only transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – unlike combustion appliances, geothermal systems carry no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead providing clean, wonderfully breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank among the most environmentally friendly of any system around – since, in the winter, a geothermal system is just transferring heat from the ground into your home, and in the summer, it’s removing heat to keep your home cool.

So why hold out? Make this the year you retrofit and renew your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Contact Geo Source One Inc. now about the proper way to go about it!
