How Do I Work Out Whether Geothermal Heating and Cooling Is Right for My Starkville Home?

picture of house with geothermal loopIf there’s anybody around who still hasn’t heard about the benefits of geothermal heating and cooling, you might very well inquire if they’ve been living underground. Of course, such people would probably miss the irony of your question, considering that the source of geothermal heating and cooling lies underground.

At present, though, most Starkville homeowners understand at least a little about the benefits of a geothermal HVAC system. More of them are considering one, too – either as a replacement or upgrade to their existing system or as the system they install in that new home they’re building.

Thinking about converting to geothermal yourself? Well, the benefits certainly are seductive:

  • Supplanting your old, familiar HVAC system with a geothermal one could help you cut your heating and cooling costs by as much as 80 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are remarkably energy efficient. That, plus the fact that they work with the environment, not against it, make them the most environmentally friendly HVAC systems around.
  • Thanks to the options geothermal systems offer – package units, split systems, and duel-fuel systems, for starters – you can better ensure that the system you choose is the most efficient and effective for your Starkville home.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are made for generations of dependable use. The fact that they have few parts, need less maintenance, have vertical or horizontal loops installed underground or in ponds or wells, and call for the heat-exchange equipment to be sheltered indoors, out of the weather, certainly helps.
  • A geothermal heating and cooling system can be put in any time you want. The weather and the temperature are no impediment, and no additional fees are charged for “seasonal reasons.”
  • Only a teeny, tiny bit of your yard need be dedicated to a geothermal heating and cooling system. And what space is required is unobtrusive; the “curb appeal” of your home should be completely unaffected.
  • As if all this weren’t incentive enough, geothermal heating and cooling systems are becoming ever more wallet-friendly – even lacking, as we do at the moment, federal tax credits and rebates. Advances in system design and manufacturing processes as well as growing competition in the marketplace are what’s helping drive costs down.
 
Still, as irresistable as all this is, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a considerable investment. Whether or not it’s the right investment for you is dependent not only on your bank account but also on such factors as the land space available for the heat-exchange loop and the current ductwork in your home if you’re retrofitting.
