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

Old home or new, if you’re annoyed with your current HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you update to geothermal. Prices will surely never be as ideal again. And, if you need assistance with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be well-advised to speak now with Action Heating & Cooling Services, LLC, the Green Bay geothermal specialists, about what financing options you may have – particularly if you’re really committed to upgrading to a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Action Heating & Cooling Services, LLC can also inform you as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some kind of financial relief. Tax credits may come into play also. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are definitely an upgrade in energy efficiency over the usual HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the installation 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! Gradually, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’d better believe it, you’re going to enjoy your geothermal system for a very long time.

Consider that a regular 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 dug into your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … starting cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is more beneficial for you no matter how you look at it. Among its strongest advantages are …

  • having a perpetually – and easily – renewable source of energy, right from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capability bundled in one tidy package
  • lower operating costs – since geothermal systems use so little electricity,
  • an exceptionally long lifespan – as mentioned previously,
  • conspicuously quieter operation than run-of-the-mill heating and cooling systems – seeing that the greater part of your geothermal system is buried in the earth, 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 demands 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 present no threat of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead delivering clean, gloriously breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank among the most environmentally friendly of any system you could find – 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 why wait any longer? Make this the year you retrofit and enhance your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk to Action Heating & Cooling Services, LLC now about the best way to go about it!
