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

Regardless of whether your Kearney home is old or new, if you’re unhappy with the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you advance to geothermal. Prices won’t likely ever be better. And, if you need assistance with up-front costs, interest-free loans are usually available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be smart to talk now with Axmann Heating & Air Conditioning, the Kearney geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – if, in fact you’re sincere about upgrading to a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Axmann Heating & Air Conditioning can also counsel you 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 unmistakably a step (or two, or three!) up in energy efficiency over the usual HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal retrofit. 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! In due course, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’d better believe it, you’re going to own your geothermal system for a very long time.

Bear in mind that a typical furnace, even when well maintained, might last, oh, say, 15 years. 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 … up-front cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is better for you from pretty much any perspective. Among its top selling points are …

  • having a perpetually – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capability bundled in one orderly package
  • lower operating costs – since geothermal systems demand so little electricity,
  • an incredibly long lifespan – as described previously,
  • significantly quieter operation than typical heating and cooling systems – since most of your geothermal system is buried beneath your lawn, and the portions of it that aren’t don’t experience the same stresses and strains,
  • lower repair costs – aside from an undemanding schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance needs 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 pose no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead delivering 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 wait any longer? Make this the year you retrofit and renew your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk with Axmann Heating & Air Conditioning now about the best way to go about it!
