Homeowners in Western Hills are probably already thinking about the cost of heating this winter. Whether you’re building a new home or don’t want to spend any more money repairing an aging system, you may want to consider a geothermal system for your home. There are several benefits for homeowners that choose a geothermal HVAC system.
Benefits of Geothermal Systems
The EPA states that geothermal systems are the most cost-effective, environmentally friendly method for home heating and cooling. While installing a geothermal system is initially more expensive than other options, because geothermal systems save so much on heating and cooling the system typically pays for itself within just a few years. Additionally, geothermal systems can generate some or all of a home’s hot water needs. By making a simple addition during installation, contractors help homeowners cut hot water costs considerably.
Geothermals are much safer since these systems don’t use gas, heating oil, or propane. Your family won’t be subjected to a possible fire caused by the heating system, dangerous fumes, or a carbon monoxide leak.
These heating and cooling systems don’t need a lot of maintenance outside of regular inspections and filter changes. The units are underground and indoor and aren’t exposed to the wear and tear of extreme temperatures and weather. Many geothermal systems will last two decades or longer.
During extreme weather it’s not uncommon for homes with traditional units to have hot or cold spots. Geothermal systems eliminate these temperature irregularities, keeping your home at a uniform temperature. During hot and steamy summer weather, these systems help reduce humidity making your home much more comfortable.
