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

picture of house with geothermal loopIf there are still people out there who are unaware of the perks of geothermal heating and cooling, you might be justified in asking if they’ve been living underground. Of course, such people would undoubtedly miss the irony of your question, since the source of geothermal heating and cooling lies underground.

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

Contemplating going geothermal yourself? Well, the benefits certainly are alluring:

  • Supplanting 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 remarkably energy efficient. That, along with the fact that they have a benignly symbiotic relationship with the environment, make them the most environmentally friendly HVAC systems you could own.
  • With the options geothermal systems give you – package units, split systems, and duel-fuel systems, first off – you have a better chance of seeing that the system you pick is the most efficient and effective for your Atlanta home.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are designed, engineered, built, and installed for generations of faithful service. The fact that they have so 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 located indoors, out of the weather, makes a considerable difference.
  • A geothermal heating and cooling system can be put in any time you want. The weather and the temperature are no hindrance, and no added fees are charged for “seasonal reasons.”
  • Only a teeny, tiny bit of your yard need be set aside for a geothermal heating and cooling system. And what space is needed is inconspicuous; your home and landscaping won’t be deprived of the “curb appeal” you work diligently to maintain.
  • As if all this weren’t incentive enough, geothermal heating and cooling systems are becoming ever more budget-friendly – even lacking, as we do at the moment, federal tax credits and rebates. Improvements in system design and manufacturing processes as well as increased competition in the marketplace are what’s helping drive costs down.
 
Nevertheless, as attractive as all this may be, a geothermal heating and cooling system is an important investment. Whether or not it’s the right 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 current ductwork in your home if you’re retrofitting.
