Time to Upgrade Your Bloomington Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

Regardless of whether your Bloomington home is old or new, if you’re unhappy with your present HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you advance to geothermal. Prices will surely never be as ideal again. And, if you need aid with the up-front financial outlay, interest-free loans are typically available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be well-advised to talk now with Quality HVAC, the Bloomington geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – that is, if you’re really committed to going with a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Quality HVAC can also inform you as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some sort of financial relief. Tax credits may be applicable also. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are unquestionably an upgrade in energy efficiency over the usual HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal enhancement. First, a recently installed geothermal system will significantly lower your home’s utility bills. Right away, 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’d better believe it, you’re going to own your geothermal system for a very long time.

Figure that a conventional furnace, even when rigorously 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 … starting cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is better for you from pretty much any angle. Among its chief virtues are …

  • having an eternally – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling facility wrapped up in one orderly package
  • lower operating costs – since geothermal systems need so little electricity,
  • an incredibly long lifespan – as described above,
  • conspicuously quieter operation than traditional heating and cooling systems – seeing that most of your geothermal system is buried beneath your lawn, and the components of it that aren’t don’t experience the same stresses and strains,
  • lower repair costs – except for a light schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance needs 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 carry 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 only 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 revive your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Contact Quality HVAC now about the proper way to go about it!
