How Do I Decide Whether Geothermal Heating and Cooling Is Right for My Medina Home?

picture of house with geothermal loopIf there are still people out there who are unaware of the benefits of geothermal heating and cooling, you might be justified in asking if they’ve been living underground. Of course, those people would surely miss the irony of your question, since the source of geothermal heating and cooling lies underground.

These days, though, most Medina homeowners understand at least a bit about the benefits of a geothermal HVAC system. More of them are contemplating one, too – either as a replacement or upgrade to their present system or as the system they install in that new home they’ll soon have under construction.

Thinking about converting to geothermal yourself? Well, the benefits certainly are attractive:

  • Switching out your traditional HVAC system with a geothermal one could help you lower your heating and cooling costs by as much as 80 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are incredibly energy efficient. That, along with the fact that they have a benignly symbiotic relationship with the environment, make them the most environmentally friendly HVAC systems you could install.
  • Given the options geothermal systems offer – package units, split systems, and duel-fuel systems, to begin with – you’re in more of a position to insure that the system you select is the most efficient and effective for your Medina home.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are made for generations of dependable use. The fact that they have few parts, need less maintenance, have vertical or horizontal loops installed underground or in ponds or wells, and call for the heat-exchange equipment to be situated indoors, out of the weather, surely helps.
  • A geothermal heating and cooling system can be installed any time you want. The weather and the temperature are no handicap, and no added fees are charged for “seasonal reasons.”
  • Only a small patch of your yard need be dedicated to a geothermal heating and cooling system. And what space is required is inconspicuous; your home and landscaping won’t be deprived of the “curb appeal” you strive to maintain.
  • As if all this weren’t incentive enough, geothermal heating and cooling systems are becoming increasingly budget-friendly – even lacking, as we do at the moment, 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.
 
Nevertheless, as motivating as all this is, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a hefty investment. Whether or not it’s the most appropriate investment for you depends not only on 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.
