Time to Update Your Greensburg Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

Old home or new, if you’re displeased with the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you move up to geothermal. Prices aren’t likely ever to be better. And, if you need help with the up-front cash outlay, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be smart to talk now with Wallpe Heating & Cooling, the Greensburg geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – that is, if you’re earnest about upgrading to a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Wallpe Heating & Cooling can also clue you in 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 obviously a step (or two, or three!) up in energy efficiency over the more customary HVAC systems.

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

Consider that an ordinary furnace, even when conscientiously 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 a wiser choice for you no matter how you look at it. Among its strongest assets are …

  • having a perpetually – and easily – renewable source of energy, right from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capacity bundled in one tidy package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems run on so little electricity,
  • an exceptionally long lifespan – as described previously,
  • conspicuously quieter operation than run-of-the-mill heating and cooling systems – since much of your geothermal system is buried underground, and the portions of it that aren’t aren’t subject to the same stresses and strains,
  • minor repair costs – except for an unobtrusive schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance requirements 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 danger of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead producing clean, marvelously breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank among the most environmentally friendly of any system on the market – 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 wait any longer? Make this the year you retrofit and renew your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk to Wallpe Heating & Cooling now about the best way to go about it!
