Time to Upgrade Your Kitsap County Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

If your Kitsap County home’s an older one, or even if it’s relatively new, and you’re displeased with the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you update to geothermal. Prices will surely never be as ideal again. And, if you need aid with the up-front financial outlay, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to consult now with Thermal Systems, the Kitsap County geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – if, in fact you’re really committed to going with a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Thermal Systems 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 surely an enhancement in energy efficiency over traditional HVAC systems.

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

Note that a regular furnace, even when well maintained, might hold up for 15 years of solid 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 … starting cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is better for you from pretty much any angle. Among its chief advantages are …

  • having a constantly – and easily – renewable source of energy, straight from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling facility wrapped in one trim package
  • reduced operating costs – since geothermal systems use so little electricity,
  • an incredibly long lifespan – as mentioned previously,
  • conspicuously quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – seeing that most of your geothermal system is buried outside in the yard, and the parts of it that aren’t aren’t put through the same stresses and strains,
  • reduced repair costs – aside from a light schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance necessities 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 producing clean, awesomely breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank among the most environmentally friendly of any system on the market – 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 hold out? Make this the year you retrofit and revive your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk with Thermal Systems now about the right way to go about it!
