How Do I Decide Whether Geothermal Heating and Cooling Is Right for My Hart Home?

picture of house with geothermal loopIf there’s anyone out there who still doesn’t know about the perks of geothermal heating and cooling, you might be justified in asking if they’ve been living underground. Of course, those people would undoubtedly miss the irony of your question, given that the source of geothermal heating and cooling lies underground.

Anymore, though, most Hart homeowners have heard at least something about the advantages of a geothermal HVAC system. More of them are contemplating one, too – either as a replacement or upgrade to their present system or as the system they install in that new home they’ll soon have under construction.

Considering converting to geothermal yourself? Well, the benefits certainly are tempting:

  • Switching out your old, familiar HVAC system with a geothermal one could help you reduce your heating and cooling costs by as much as 80 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are marvelously energy efficient. That, in conjunction with the fact that they don’t fight the environment, but work with it, make them the most environmentally friendly HVAC systems available today.
  • Given the options geothermal systems provide – package units, split systems, and duel-fuel systems, for starters – you can better ensure that the system you choose is the most efficient and effective for your Hart home.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are built 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, surely helps.
  • A geothermal heating and cooling system can be installed any time of the year. The weather and the temperature are no impediment, and no extra fees are charged for “seasonal reasons.”
  • Only a small patch of your yard need be taken up by a geothermal heating and cooling system. And what space is required is unobtrusive; your home and landscaping won’t be deprived of the “curb appeal” you strive to maintain.
  • Last, but not least, geothermal heating and cooling systems are becoming increasingly affordable – even without the current availability of federal tax credits and rebates. Refinements in system design and manufacturing processes as well as greater competition in the marketplace are what’s helping drive costs down.
 
Nevertheless, as irresistable as all this may be, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a major investment. Whether or not it’s the ideal investment for you is dependent not only on your budget but also on such factors as the land space available for the heat-exchange loop and the existing ductwork in your home if you’re retrofitting.
