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

Regardless of whether your Western Montana home is old or new, if you’re unhappy with your present HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you advance 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 consult now with Ground Source Systems, Inc., the Western Montana geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – that is, if you’re serious about going with a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Ground Source Systems, Inc. can also clue you in as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer financial relief of some kind. Tax credits may be available also. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are unquestionably an enhancement in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the installation cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a newly installed geothermal system will lower your home’s utility bills remarkably. In no time at all, 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 own your geothermal system for a very long time.

Bear in mind that a regular furnace, even when correctly 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 … starting cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is better for you no matter how you look at it. Among its chief advantages are …

  • having an unceasingly – and easily – renewable source of energy, right from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capacity wrapped in one neat package
  • reduced operating costs – since geothermal systems run on so little electricity,
  • a remarkably long lifespan – as described above,
  • markedly quieter operation than conventional heating and cooling systems – given that the greater part of your geothermal system is buried in the earth, and the portions of it that aren’t aren’t subject to the same stresses and strains,
  • minor repair costs – aside from a light schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance requirements 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, awesomely breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank among the most environmentally friendly of any system being sold today – 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 what’s holding you back? Make this the year you retrofit and enhance your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk to Ground Source Systems, Inc. now about the right way to go about it!
