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

Old home or new, if you’re dissatisfied with the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you update to geothermal. Prices aren’t likely ever to be better. 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. It’d be to your advantage to speak now with Comfort Flow Heating, the Lane County geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – if, in fact you’re earnest about upgrading to a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Comfort Flow Heating can also clue you in as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some measure of financial relief. Tax credits may come into play also. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are unquestionably an enhancement in energy efficiency over conventional HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the up-front cost of a geothermal retrofit. First, a recently installed geothermal system will significantly reduce your home’s utility bills. You could see immediate savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! Over time, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’re going to have your geothermal system for a very long time.

Bear in mind that an ordinary furnace, even when correctly 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 buried in your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … preliminary cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is better for you in every way. Among its greatest attributes are …

  • having an eternally – and easily – renewable source of energy, right from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling facility wrapped up in one neat package
  • lower operating costs – since geothermal systems require so little electricity,
  • an incredibly long lifespan – as described earlier,
  • conspicuously quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – seeing that the greater part of your geothermal system is buried underground, and the components of it that aren’t aren’t put through the same stresses and strains,
  • lower repair costs – except for 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, sublimely breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank among the most environmentally friendly of any system around – 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 else could you need? Make this the year you retrofit and refresh your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Contact Comfort Flow Heating now about the proper way to go about it!
