Time to Retrofit 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 unhappy with the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you upgrade to geothermal. Prices aren’t likely ever to be better. And, if you need help with up-front costs, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to talk now with Sisler Heating & Cooling, Inc., the Medina geothermal authority, about what financing options you may have – if, in fact you’re really committed to going with 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 measure of financial relief. Tax credits may be applicable too. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are unmistakably 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 recently installed geothermal system will significantly reduce your home’s utility bills. You could see immediate savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! One day, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’ll certainly have your geothermal system for a very long time.

Note that a regular furnace, even when well maintained, might last maybe 15 years. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and engineered 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 a wiser choice for you in every way. Among its top selling points are …

  • having a continuously – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling facility wrapped in one trim package
  • reduced operating costs – since geothermal systems run on so little electricity,
  • an exceptionally long lifespan – as described previously,
  • appreciably quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – seeing that much of your geothermal system is buried underground, and the portions of it that aren’t don’t undergo the same stresses and strains,
  • minor repair costs – except for an unobtrusive schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance requirements with a geothermal system since its relatively few parts are only transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – unlike combustion appliances, geothermal systems carry no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead producing clean, marvelously breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that are among the most environmentally friendly of any system being sold today – 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 enhance your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Consult with Sisler Heating & Cooling, Inc. now about the right way to go about it!
