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

Old home or new, if you’re exasperated with the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you update to geothermal. Prices won’t likely ever be better. And, if you need aid with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are generally available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be wise to talk now with Utah Geothermal, the Utah geothermal specialists, 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. Utah Geothermal can also clue you in as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer financial relief of some kind. Tax credits may be available too. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are unmistakably an enhancement in energy efficiency over conventional HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the up-front cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a recently installed geothermal system will lower your home’s utility bills remarkably. You could see immediate 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’re going to own your geothermal system for a very long time.

It’s generally conceded that a regular furnace, even when conscientiously maintained, might hang in there for 15 years of reliable service. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and fabricated to last up to 30 years. And the ground loop buried in your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … up-front cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a wiser choice for you from pretty much any perspective. Among its top selling points are …

  • having an eternally – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capacity rolled up in one neat package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems demand so little electricity,
  • an exceptionally long lifespan – as mentioned previously,
  • markedly quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – since much of your geothermal system is buried beneath your lawn, and the parts of it that aren’t aren’t subject to the same stresses and strains,
  • minor repair costs – other than a modest schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance requirements 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 present no threat of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead providing clean, marvelously breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that are among the most environmentally friendly of any system you could find – since, in the winter, a geothermal system is simply 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 refresh your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk with Utah Geothermal now about the right way to go about it!
