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

Regardless of whether your Ord home is old or new, if you’re unhappy with your current HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you upgrade to geothermal. Prices will surely never be as low again. And, if you need aid with the up-front cash outlay, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be smart to talk now with Wadas Inc., the Ord geothermal specialists, about what financing options you may have – especially if you’re serious about installing a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Wadas Inc. can also advise you as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer financial relief of some kind. Tax credits may be available too. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are obviously an upgrade in energy efficiency over conventional HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the up-front cost of a geothermal enhancement. First, a newly installed geothermal system will lower your home’s utility bills remarkably. You could see immediate 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’ll certainly own your geothermal system for a very long time.

Consider that a regular furnace, even when well maintained, might hold up for 15 years of reliable service. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and built to last up to 30 years. And the ground loop beneath your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … up-front cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is more beneficial for you from pretty much any angle. Among its chief advantages are …

  • having a perpetually – and easily – renewable source of energy, straight from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capability bundled in one tidy package
  • lower operating costs – since geothermal systems demand so little electricity,
  • a terrifically long lifespan – as noted previously,
  • conspicuously quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – since most of your geothermal system is buried beneath your lawn, and the elements of it that aren’t don’t undergo the same stresses and strains,
  • minor repair costs – besides a light schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance needs with a geothermal system since its relatively few parts are only transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – unlike combustion appliances, geothermal systems pose no danger of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead providing clean, awesomely breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that are among the most environmentally friendly of any system available – since, in the winter, a geothermal system is just 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 enhance your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Consult with Wadas Inc. now about the right way to go about it!
