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

If your Starkville home’s an older one, or even if it’s relatively new, and you’re displeased with your present HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you upgrade to geothermal. Prices probably won’t ever be better. And, if you need assistance with the up-front cash outlay, interest-free loans are generally available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be wise to consult now with Mid South Air Conditioning, Inc., the Starkville geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – particularly if you’re really committed to installing a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Mid South Air Conditioning, Inc. can also inform you as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer financial relief of some kind. Tax credits may come into play also. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are unmistakably an enhancement in energy efficiency over the more customary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a newly installed geothermal system will lower your home’s utility bills appreciably. You could see immediate savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! Eventually, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’d better believe it, you’re going to have your geothermal system for a very long time.

It’s generally conceded that a regular furnace, even when well maintained, might last maybe 15 years. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and engineered to last up to 30 years. And the ground loop beneath your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … up-front cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a wiser choice for you from pretty much any angle. Among its top advantages are …

  • having aforever – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capability wrapped up in one neat package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems demand so little electricity,
  • a terrifically long lifespan – as described earlier,
  • appreciably quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – seeing that much of your geothermal system is buried outside in the yard, and the components of it that aren’t aren’t subject to the same stresses and strains,
  • minor repair costs – except for an unobtrusive 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 carry no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead providing clean, marvelously breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that are among the most environmentally friendly of any system around – 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 what’s holding you back? Make this the year you retrofit and upgrade your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Contact Mid South Air Conditioning, Inc. now about the proper way to go about it!
