Time to Upgrade Your WISCONSIN-MINNESOTA Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

Regardless of whether your WISCONSIN-MINNESOTA home is old or new, if you’re annoyed with your current HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you upgrade to geothermal. Prices will surely never be as good again. And, if you need aid with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to talk now with Comfort By Design, Inc., the WISCONSIN-MINNESOTA geothermal authority, about what financing options you may have – if, in fact you’re really committed to going with a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Comfort By Design, Inc. can also advise you as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some sort of financial relief. Tax credits may come into play also. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are surely an upgrade in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the installation cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a recently installed geothermal system will lower your home’s utility bills considerably. You could see immediate savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! In due course, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’d better believe it, you’re going to own your geothermal system for a very long time.

It’s generally conceded that an ordinary furnace, even when conscientiously maintained, might last, oh, say, 15 years. 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 … starting cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is more advantageous for you in every way. Among its top selling points are …

  • having an unceasingly – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling facility rolled up in one neat package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems demand so little electricity,
  • an incredibly long lifespan – as mentioned earlier,
  • appreciably quieter operation than traditional heating and cooling systems – seeing that much of your geothermal system is buried underground, and the components of it that aren’t don’t experience the same stresses and strains,
  • reduced repair costs – except for an unobtrusive schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance requirements 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 carry no danger of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead producing clean, wonderfully breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank among the most environmentally friendly of any system you could find – 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 what else could you need? Make this the year you retrofit and renew your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk to Comfort By Design, Inc. now about the right way to go about it!
