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

Regardless of whether your Southeast Missouri home is old or new, if you’re annoyed with your present HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you update to geothermal. Prices will surely never be as good again. And, if you need aid with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are typically available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be wise to talk now with Lundy HTG. & CLG., the Southeast Missouri geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – especially if you’re really committed to installing a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Lundy HTG. & CLG. 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 unquestionably an upgrade in energy efficiency over conventional HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the up-front cost of a geothermal retrofit. First, a newly installed geothermal system will significantly cut your home’s utility bills. Without delay, you could see savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! In time, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’re going to have your geothermal system for a very long time.

Note that a regular furnace, even when rigorously maintained, might last something like 15 years. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and engineered to last up to 30 years. And the ground loop buried in your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … up-front cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a wiser choice for you from pretty much any angle. Among its strongest assets are …

  • having aforever – and easily – renewable source of energy, straight from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling facility wrapped in one trim package
  • lower operating costs – since geothermal systems demand so little electricity,
  • a terrifically long lifespan – as described earlier,
  • conspicuously quieter operation than traditional heating and cooling systems – seeing that much of your geothermal system is buried beneath your lawn, and the components of it that aren’t don’t experience the same stresses and strains,
  • reduced repair costs – besides a modest schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance demands 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 carry no threat of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead delivering clean, awesomely breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that are among the most environmentally friendly of any system available – since, in the winter, a geothermal system is merely transferring heat from the ground into your home, and in the summer, it’s removing heat to keep your home cool.

So what else could you need? Make this the year you retrofit and enhance your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Contact Lundy HTG. & CLG. now about the proper way to go about it!
