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

Regardless of whether your Dallas home is old or new, if you’re dissatisfied with your present HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you move up to geothermal. Prices probably won’t ever be better. And, if you need aid with up-front costs, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to talk now with Geo-Thermal Distribution Co., LLC, the Dallas geothermal authority, 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. Geo-Thermal Distribution Co., LLC 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 applicable as well. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are unquestionably an upgrade in energy efficiency over the usual HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the up-front cost of a geothermal enhancement. First, a freshly installed geothermal system will lower your home’s utility bills considerably. Right away, you could see 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 enjoy your geothermal system for a very long time.

Figure that an ordinary furnace, even when properly maintained, might last, oh, say, 15 years. 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 … preliminary cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is better for you from pretty much any perspective. Among its top advantages are …

  • having aforever – and easily – renewable source of energy, straight from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling facility wrapped in one orderly package
  • lower operating costs – since geothermal systems use so little electricity,
  • an unusually long lifespan – as mentioned previously,
  • appreciably quieter operation than typical heating and cooling systems – since most of your geothermal system is buried in the earth, and the parts of it that aren’t aren’t subject to 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 simply transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – in contrast to combustion appliances, geothermal systems carry no danger of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead producing clean, marvelously 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 simply 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 refresh your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Contact Geo-Thermal Distribution Co., LLC now about the proper way to go about it!
