How Do I Establish Whether Geothermal Heating and Cooling Is Right for My Kearney Home?

picture of house with geothermal loopYou might well ask someone who still doesn’t know about geothermal heating and cooling if they’ve been living underground for the last 50 years or so. Of course, that person would surely miss the irony of your question, given that the source of geothermal heating and cooling lies underground.

Anymore, though, most Kearney homeowners have heard at least a bit about the rewards of a geothermal HVAC system. More of them are mulling one over, too – either as a replacement or upgrade to their current system or as the system they install in that new home they’re having built for them.

Thinking about going geothermal yourself? Well, the benefits certainly are appealing:

  • Exchanging your conventional HVAC system for a geothermal one could help you lower your heating and cooling costs by as much as 80 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are amazingly energy efficient. That, along with the fact that they don’t fight the environment, but work with it, make them the most environmentally friendly HVAC systems you could install.
  • Considering the options geothermal systems offer – package units, split systems, and duel-fuel systems, to begin with – you have a better chance of assuring that the system you pick is the most efficient and effective for your Kearney home.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are built for generations of trustworthy performance. The fact that they have few parts, require less maintenance, have vertical or horizontal loops installed underground or in ponds or wells, and call for the heat-exchange equipment to be located indoors, out of the weather, surely helps.
  • A geothermal heating and cooling system can be put in any time of the year. The weather and the temperature are no obstacle, and no added fees are charged for “seasonal reasons.”
  • Very little of your yard space is necessary for a geothermal heating and cooling system. And what space is required is unobtrusive; the “curb appeal” of your home won’t be ruined in the least.
  • Last, but not least, geothermal heating and cooling systems are becoming more and more affordable – even in the (one would hope) temporary absence of federal tax credits and rebates. Advances in system design and manufacturing processes as well as increased competition in the marketplace are what’s helping drive costs down.
 
That said, as attractive as all this may be, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a hefty investment. Whether or not it’s the right investment for you is determined not only by your budget but also on such factors as the land space available for the heat-exchange loop and the existing ductwork in your home if you’re retrofitting.
