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

Regardless of whether your Ebensburg home is old or new, if you’re annoyed with the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you move up to geothermal. Prices will surely never be as low again. And, if you need aid with the up-front financial outlay, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be smart to talk now with Kupetz's Plumbing & Heating, the Ebensburg geothermal authority, about what financing options you may have – especially if you’re serious about going with a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Kupetz's Plumbing & Heating can also clue you in as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some kind of financial relief. Tax credits may be applicable too. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are surely a step (or two, or three!) up in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal enhancement. First, a newly installed geothermal system will reduce your home’s utility bills remarkably. From the start, you could see savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! Gradually, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’d better believe it, you’re going to have your geothermal system for a very long time.

Consider that a regular furnace, even when well maintained, might hold up for 15 years of solid 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 … initial cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is better for you from pretty much any angle. Among its chief attributes are …

  • having a consistently – and easily – renewable source of energy, right from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling facility rolled up in one neat package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems use so little electricity,
  • an unusually long lifespan – as noted above,
  • significantly quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – since much of your geothermal system is buried beneath your lawn, and the portions of it that aren’t aren’t subject to the same stresses and strains,
  • lower repair costs – other than an undemanding 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 carry no danger of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead delivering clean, awesomely 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 only transferring heat from the ground into your home, and in the summer, it’s removing heat to keep your home cool.

So what are you waiting for? Make this the year you retrofit and revive your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Consult with Kupetz's Plumbing & Heating now about the right way to go about it!
