Time to Update Your Manhattan Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

If your Manhattan home’s an older one, or even if it’s relatively new, and you’re exasperated with the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you move up to geothermal. Prices will surely never be as low again. And, if you need aid with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be wise to talk now with Carlson Heating & AC, LLC, the Manhattan geothermal authority, about what financing options you may have – especially if you’re really committed to going with a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Carlson Heating & AC, LLC can also clue you in as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some kind of financial relief. Tax credits may be applicable as well. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are unmistakably an upgrade in energy efficiency over traditional HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the up-front cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a freshly installed geothermal system will slash 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! Eventually, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’d better believe it, you’re going to have your geothermal system for a very long time.

Figure that an ordinary furnace, even when well maintained, might give you only 15 years of solid service. 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 … up-front cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is better for you no matter how you look at it. Among its top attributes are …

  • having an unceasingly – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling facility wrapped in one tidy package
  • lower operating costs – since geothermal systems use so little electricity,
  • an exceptionally long lifespan – as described earlier,
  • markedly quieter operation than conventional heating and cooling systems – given that the greater part of your geothermal system is buried underground, and the elements of it that aren’t aren’t subject to the same stresses and strains,
  • minor repair costs – except for 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 present no threat of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead providing clean, gloriously breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank among the most environmentally friendly of any system currently known – since, in the winter, a geothermal system is only 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 revive your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Contact Carlson Heating & AC, LLC now about the proper way to go about it!
