Time to Update Your Huntington Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

Regardless of whether your Huntington home is old or new, if you’re exasperated with your current HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you upgrade to geothermal. Prices will surely never be as good again. 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 Huntington Heating & Cooling Inc., the Huntington geothermal specialists, about what financing options you may have – if, in fact you’re really committed to installing a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Huntington Heating & Cooling Inc. can also clue you in as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some kind of financial relief. Tax credits may be applicable also. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are obviously an upgrade in energy efficiency over traditional HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the up-front cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a freshly installed geothermal system will reduce 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’re going to have your geothermal system for a very long time.

Figure that a regular furnace, even when well maintained, might give you only 15 years of solid service. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and built to last up to 30 years. And the ground loop dug into your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … starting cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is more advantageous for you no matter how you look at it. Among its top attributes are …

  • having an eternally – and easily – renewable source of energy, right from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capacity wrapped up in one neat package
  • lower operating costs – since geothermal systems run on so little electricity,
  • a remarkably long lifespan – as mentioned previously,
  • appreciably quieter operation than run-of-the-mill heating and cooling systems – since the greater part of your geothermal system is buried in the earth, and the elements of it that aren’t aren’t subject to the same stresses and strains,
  • minor repair costs – besides a modest schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance necessities with a geothermal system since its relatively few parts are merely transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – in contrast to combustion appliances, geothermal systems present no danger of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead providing clean, wonderfully 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 why wait any longer? Make this the year you retrofit and enhance your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Contact Huntington Heating & Cooling Inc. now about the right way to go about it!
