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

Regardless of whether your Van Buren home is old or new, if you’re exasperated 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 aid with the up-front cash outlay, interest-free loans are usually available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to consult now with American Energy Guard, the Van Buren geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – particularly if you’re really committed to installing a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. American Energy Guard can also clue you in as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some measure of financial relief. Tax credits may come into play as well. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are unmistakably an enhancement in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal enhancement. First, a freshly 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! In due course, 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.

Consider that an ordinary 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 … preliminary cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a wiser choice for you from pretty much any angle. Among its chief selling points are …

  • having an eternally – and easily – renewable source of energy, right from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capability rolled up in one orderly package
  • reduced operating costs – since geothermal systems run on so little electricity,
  • an unusually long lifespan – as mentioned above,
  • significantly quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – since the greater part of your geothermal system is buried in the earth, and the portions of it that aren’t aren’t put through the same stresses and strains,
  • reduced repair costs – besides an undemanding schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance demands with a geothermal system since its relatively few parts are simply transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – unlike combustion appliances, geothermal systems carry no danger of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead producing clean, marvelously breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that are 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 what’s holding you back? Make this the year you retrofit and revive your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk to American Energy Guard now about the best way to go about it!
