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

If your Greenville home’s an older one, or even if it’s relatively new, and you’re exasperated with your current HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you retrofit with geothermal. Prices aren’t likely ever to be better. And, if you need help with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to consult now with BARGA Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, Inc., the Greenville geothermal specialists, about what financing options you may have – especially if you’re really committed to going with a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. BARGA Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, Inc. can also inform 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 as well. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are unmistakably an enhancement in energy efficiency over conventional HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the up-front cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a newly installed geothermal system will significantly cut your home’s utility bills. Right away, you could see savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! By and by, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’re going to enjoy your geothermal system for a very long time.

Figure that an ordinary 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 buried in your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … initial cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is more beneficial for you from pretty much any angle. Among its chief attributes are …

  • having a continuously – and easily – renewable source of energy, straight from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling facility wrapped up in one neat package
  • reduced operating costs – since geothermal systems demand so little electricity,
  • a terrifically long lifespan – as mentioned above,
  • markedly quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – seeing that the greater part of your geothermal system is buried in the earth, and the parts of it that aren’t don’t experience the same stresses and strains,
  • lower repair costs – besides a modest schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance necessities with a geothermal system since its relatively few parts are just transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – unlike combustion appliances, geothermal systems carry no threat of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead producing clean, marvelously breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank among the most environmentally friendly of any system being sold today – 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 are you waiting for? Make this the year you retrofit and renew your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk to BARGA Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, Inc. now about the right way to go about it!
