How Do I Work Out Whether Geothermal Heating and Cooling Is Right for My Van Buren Home?

picture of house with geothermal loopIf there are still people out there who are unaware of the perks of geothermal heating and cooling, you might be justified in asking if they’ve been living underground. Of course, such people would surely miss the irony of your question, considering that the source of geothermal heating and cooling lies underground.

Anymore, though, most Van Buren homeowners have heard at least something about the advantages of a geothermal HVAC system. More of them are considering one, too – either as a replacement or upgrade to their existing system or as the system they install in that new home they’re having built for them.

Thinking about converting to geothermal yourself? Well, the benefits certainly are attractive:

  • Supplanting 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 incredibly 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 available today.
  • Thanks to the options geothermal systems provide – package units, split systems, and duel-fuel systems, first off – you have a better chance of seeing that the system you pick is the most efficient and effective for your Van Buren home.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are made for generations of trustworthy performance. The fact that they have few parts, need 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, helps significantly.
  • A geothermal heating and cooling system can be installed any time of the year. The weather and the temperature are no handicap, and no additional fees are charged for “seasonal reasons.”
  • Only a teeny, tiny bit of your yard need be dedicated to a geothermal heating and cooling system. And what space is needed is inconspicuous; the “curb appeal” of your home won’t suffer at all.
  • Finally, geothermal heating and cooling systems are becoming increasingly affordable – even without the current availability of federal tax credits and rebates. Advances in system design and manufacturing processes as well as greater competition in the marketplace are what’s helping drive costs down.
 
Still, as pleasing as all this might be, a geothermal heating and cooling system is an important investment. Whether or not it’s the most feasible investment for you is determined not only by 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.
