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 the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you move up to geothermal. Prices will surely never be as low again. And, if you need aid with up-front costs, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be wise to speak now with Geo-Thermal Distribution Co., LLC, the Dallas geothermal authority, about what financing options you may have – if, in fact you’re sincere about 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 some sort of financial relief. Tax credits may be applicable as well. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are clearly an upgrade in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal enhancement. First, a freshly installed geothermal system will significantly lower your home’s utility bills. You could see immediate savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! Over time, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’re going to enjoy your geothermal system for a very long time.

Consider that a typical furnace, even when well maintained, might hang in there for 15 years of decent 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 … preliminary cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a wiser choice for you in every way. Among its top advantages are …

  • having a perpetually – and easily – renewable source of energy, straight from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling facility rolled up in one orderly package
  • lower operating costs – since geothermal systems run on so little electricity,
  • an unusually long lifespan – as mentioned previously,
  • appreciably quieter operation than typical heating and cooling systems – given that most of your geothermal system is buried underground, and the parts of it that aren’t aren’t subject to the same stresses and strains,
  • lower repair costs – besides 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 just transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – in contrast to combustion appliances, geothermal systems carry no threat 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 just 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!
