Is geothermal a good fit for me?
Geothermal systems run at lower speeds for longer periods of time, keeping your home at a consistently comfortable temperature and humidity level all year without hot or cold spots.
The most valuable appliance you will ever buy for your home is the HVAC system. The geothermal system costs more, but you get so much more than a conventional system. The loop field installed on your property will forever harvest free energy. It is also SILENT, INVISIBLE and MAINTENANCE FREE. A loop field will last 1000’s of years and gets more expensive to install each year with rising material costs, labor costs and insurance. The complete geothermal system only has 3 moving parts. The investment today becomes much more valuable tomorrow and you get to enjoy the safety, comfort and reliability of your investment everyday. All geothermal installations receive a 26% energy tax credit in 2020.
Geothermal is renewable and doesn’t burn fossil fuels, so there are no CO2 emissions. Switching from conventional heating and cooling is the environmental equivalent of planting 750 trees (1 acre of trees).
