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

Old home or new, if you’re displeased with your current HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you advance to geothermal. Prices won’t likely ever be better. And, if you need assistance with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are generally available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to talk now with Conan Heating and Geothermal, the Idaho Falls geothermal authority, about what financing options you may have – if, in fact you’re sincere about installing a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Conan Heating and Geothermal can also clue you in as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer financial relief of some kind. Tax credits may come into play as well. 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 enhancement. First, a freshly installed geothermal system will significantly cut your home’s utility bills. Without delay, you could see savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! By and by, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’re going to enjoy your geothermal system for a very long time.

Figure that a typical furnace, even when well maintained, might give you only 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 … initial cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a wiser choice for you from pretty much any angle. Among its chief assets are …

  • having aforever – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly 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 exceptionally long lifespan – as described above,
  • markedly quieter operation than typical heating and cooling systems – since much of your geothermal system is buried beneath your lawn, and the elements of it that aren’t don’t have to endure the same stresses and strains,
  • reduced repair costs – except for an undemanding schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance necessities 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 present no threat of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead providing clean, marvelously breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank 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 what’s holding you back? Make this the year you retrofit and enhance your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk with Conan Heating and Geothermal now about the right way to go about it!
