Time to Retrofit Your Atlanta Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

If your Atlanta home’s an older one, or even if it’s relatively new, and you’re exasperated with your current HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you retrofit with geothermal. Prices won’t likely ever be better. And, if you need assistance with up-front costs, interest-free loans are generally available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to talk now with GeoSaves, Inc., the Atlanta geothermal authority, about what financing options you may have – that is, if you’re earnest about upgrading to a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. GeoSaves, Inc. can also counsel you as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some measure of financial relief. Tax credits may be applicable also. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are definitely a step (or two, or three!) up in energy efficiency over the more customary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the installation cost of a geothermal retrofit. First, a newly installed geothermal system will cut your home’s utility bills significantly. In no time at all, you could see savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! One day, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’ll certainly own your geothermal system for a very long time.

It’s generally conceded that an ordinary furnace, even when rigorously maintained, might give you only 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 beneath your yard is good for 50 years at least!

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

  • having an unceasingly – and easily – renewable source of energy, right from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capability bundled in one trim package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems require so little electricity,
  • a terrifically long lifespan – as mentioned earlier,
  • appreciably quieter operation than typical heating and cooling systems – since much of your geothermal system is buried beneath your lawn, and the components of it that aren’t aren’t subject to the same stresses and strains,
  • lower repair costs – aside from a modest schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance demands 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 producing clean, marvelously 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 only transferring heat from the ground into your home, and in the summer, it’s removing heat to keep your home cool.

So why wait any longer? Make this the year you retrofit and renew your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk to GeoSaves, Inc. now about the best way to go about it!
