Time to Retrofit Your Oswego Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

If your Oswego home’s an older one, or even if it’s relatively new, and you’re unhappy with the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you update to geothermal. Prices probably won’t ever be better. And, if you need assistance with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be smart to talk now with Nodines Heating Inc., the Oswego geothermal specialists, about what financing options you may have – especially if you’re serious about upgrading to a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Nodines Heating Inc. can also advise 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 too. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are surely an enhancement in energy efficiency over the more customary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the installation cost of a geothermal enhancement. First, a freshly installed geothermal system will cut your home’s utility bills remarkably. You could see immediate savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! As time goes on, 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.

Figure that an ordinary furnace, even when rigorously maintained, might last around 15 years. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and fabricated to last up to 30 years. And the ground loop dug into your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … starting cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is better for you in every way. Among its greatest attributes are …

  • having aforever – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capacity bundled in one tidy package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems run on so little electricity,
  • an exceptionally long lifespan – as noted earlier,
  • markedly quieter operation than run-of-the-mill heating and cooling systems – given that the greater part of your geothermal system is buried outside in the yard, and the elements of it that aren’t aren’t put through the same stresses and strains,
  • reduced repair costs – besides a light schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance demands with a geothermal system since its relatively few parts are merely transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – unlike combustion appliances, geothermal systems present no danger of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead providing clean, wonderfully breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank among the most environmentally friendly of any system you could find – 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 what’s holding you back? Make this the year you retrofit and upgrade your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Contact Nodines Heating Inc. now about the proper way to go about it!
