How Do I Establish Whether Geothermal Heating and Cooling Is Right for My Jasper Home?

picture of house with geothermal loopYou might well ask someone who still hasn’t gotten the word about geothermal heating and cooling if they’ve been living underground for the last 50 years or so. Of course, that person would more than likely miss the irony of your question, given that the source of geothermal heating and cooling lies underground.

Anymore, though, most Jasper homeowners know at least something about the perks of a geothermal HVAC system. More of them are mulling one over, too – either as a replacement or upgrade to their present system or as the system they install in that new home they’re constructing.

Thinking about converting to geothermal yourself? Well, the benefits certainly are seductive:

  • Switching out your conventional HVAC system with a geothermal one could help you cut your heating and cooling costs by as much as 80 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are extraordinarily energy efficient. That, plus the fact that they work with the environment, not against it, make them the most environmentally friendly HVAC systems around.
  • With the options geothermal systems offer – package units, split systems, and duel-fuel systems, to begin with – you can better insure that the system you choose is the most efficient and effective for your Jasper home.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are made for generations of trusty operation. The fact that they have few parts, require less maintenance, have vertical or horizontal loops installed underground or in ponds or wells, and call for the heat-exchange equipment to be situated indoors, out of the weather, makes a big difference.
  • A geothermal heating and cooling system can be put in whenever you want. The weather and the temperature are no obstacle, and no additional fees are charged for “seasonal reasons.”
  • Almost no yard space is required for a geothermal heating and cooling system. And what space is necessary is inconspicuous; your home and landscaping won’t be deprived of the “curb appeal” you strive to keep up.
  • Finally, geothermal heating and cooling systems are becoming increasingly affordable – even without the current availability of federal tax credits and rebates. Enhancements in system design and manufacturing processes as well as greater competition in the marketplace are what’s helping drive costs down.
 
That said, as attractive as all this is, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a hefty investment. Whether or not it’s the best investment for you depends not only on your financial situation but also on such factors as the land space available for the heat-exchange loop and the current ductwork in your home if you’re retrofitting.
