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

picture of house with geothermal loopYou might well ask someone who still hasn’t gotten the word about geothermal heating and cooling if they’ve been living underground for the last 50 years or so. Of course, that person would more than likely miss the irony of your question, since the source of geothermal heating and cooling lies underground.

Nowadays, though, most Medina homeowners know at least something about the perks of a geothermal HVAC system. More of them are contemplating one, too – either as a replacement or upgrade to their current system or as the system they install in that new home they’re building.

Contemplating going geothermal yourself? Well, the benefits certainly are enticing:

  • Supplanting your conventional HVAC system with a geothermal one could help you cut your heating and cooling costs by as much as 80 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are amazingly energy efficient. That, coupled with the fact that they have a benignly symbiotic relationship with the environment, make them the most environmentally friendly HVAC systems available today.
  • Considering the options geothermal systems provide – package units, split systems, and duel-fuel systems, for instance – you’re in a stronger position to assure that the system you choose is the most efficient and effective for your Medina home.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are designed, engineered, built, and installed for generations of faithful service. 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, definitely helps.
  • A geothermal heating and cooling system can be installed whenever you want. The weather and the temperature are no handicap, and no further fees are charged for “seasonal reasons.”
  • Only a teeny, tiny bit of your yard need be taken up by 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.
  • Finally, geothermal heating and cooling systems are becoming increasingly feasible from a cost perspective – even in the (one would hope) temporary absence of federal tax credits and rebates. Improvements in system design and manufacturing processes as well as growing competition in the marketplace are what’s helping drive costs down.
 
Still, as motivating as all this is, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a considerable investment. Whether or not it’s the ideal investment for you is dependent not only on your bank account but also on such factors as the land space available for the heat-exchange loop and the current ductwork in your home if you’re retrofitting.
