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

If your Elizabethtown home’s an older one, or even if it’s relatively new, and you’re annoyed with your present HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you retrofit with geothermal. Prices will surely never be as good again. And, if you need aid with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are typically available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be smart to consult now with Dever Enterprises, the Elizabethtown geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – that is, if you’re really committed to going with a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Dever Enterprises can also counsel 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 definitely an enhancement in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a freshly installed geothermal system will significantly slash your home’s utility bills. Right away, you could see savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! One day, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’ll certainly have your geothermal system for a very long time.

Consider that an ordinary furnace, even when well maintained, might give you only 15 years of reliable 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 … up-front cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is better for you in every way. Among its prime selling points are …

  • having a perpetually – and easily – renewable source of energy, right from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling facility wrapped in one trim package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems need so little electricity,
  • an incredibly long lifespan – as described above,
  • markedly quieter operation than conventional heating and cooling systems – since the greater part of your geothermal system is buried in the earth, and the parts of it that aren’t don’t experience the same stresses and strains,
  • reduced repair costs – except for an undemanding 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 present no danger 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 available – since, in the winter, a geothermal system is merely 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 renew your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk to Dever Enterprises now about the best way to go about it!
