Time to Retrofit Your The Hudson Valley Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

Old home or new, if you’re unhappy with the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you advance to geothermal. Prices aren’t likely ever to be better. And, if you need help with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be wise to speak now with Verdae Geothermal, the The Hudson Valley geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – particularly if you’re earnest about installing a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Verdae Geothermal can also advise you as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some kind of financial relief. Tax credits may come into play also. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are surely an upgrade in energy efficiency over traditional HVAC systems.

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

Note that a regular furnace, even when well maintained, might last, oh, say, 15 years. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and engineered to last up to 30 years. And the ground loop dug into your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … initial cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is more beneficial for you from pretty much any perspective. Among its greatest assets are …

  • having aforever – and easily – renewable source of energy, straight from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capability wrapped up in one orderly package
  • lower operating costs – since geothermal systems need so little electricity,
  • a remarkably long lifespan – as noted earlier,
  • significantly quieter operation than run-of-the-mill heating and cooling systems – since the greater part of your geothermal system is buried outside in the yard, and the parts of it that aren’t don’t have to endure the same stresses and strains,
  • lower repair costs – aside from a modest schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance necessities with a geothermal system since its relatively few parts are just transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – in contrast to combustion appliances, geothermal systems present no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead delivering clean, gloriously breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that are among the most environmentally friendly of any system being sold today – 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 upgrade your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk with Verdae Geothermal now about the proper way to go about it!
