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

If your Medina home’s an older one, or even if it’s relatively new, and you’re displeased with your current HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you retrofit with geothermal. Prices aren’t likely ever to be better. And, if you need help with up-front costs, interest-free loans are usually available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to speak now with Sisler Heating & Cooling, Inc., the Medina geothermal specialists, about what financing options you may have – especially if you’re really committed to installing a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Sisler 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 too. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are definitely a step (or two, or three!) up in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the installation cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a freshly installed geothermal system will slash your home’s utility bills significantly. You could see immediate savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! Over time, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’re going to enjoy your geothermal system for a very long time.

Consider that an ordinary 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 … initial cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is better for you no matter how you look at it. Among its strongest selling points are …

  • having an unceasingly – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling facility rolled up in one orderly package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems need so little electricity,
  • a remarkably long lifespan – as described earlier,
  • markedly quieter operation than typical heating and cooling systems – since most of your geothermal system is buried outside in the yard, and the elements of it that aren’t don’t undergo the same stresses and strains,
  • lower repair costs – except for an undemanding schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance necessities with a geothermal system since its relatively few parts are simply transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – unlike combustion appliances, geothermal systems pose no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead delivering clean, gloriously 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 renew your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Consult with Sisler Heating & Cooling, Inc. now about the proper way to go about it!
