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

Old home or new, if you’re dissatisfied 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 ideal again. And, if you need help with the up-front cash outlay, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be smart to consult now with Sinton Air Conditioning & Heating, Inc., the West Chester geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – that is, if you’re sincere about upgrading to a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Sinton Air Conditioning & Heating, Inc. can also counsel you as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer financial relief of some kind. Tax credits may come into play too. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are definitely an upgrade in energy efficiency over the more customary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the installation cost of a geothermal enhancement. First, a freshly installed geothermal system will significantly lower 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! As time goes on, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’re going to have your geothermal system for a very long time.

Bear in mind that an ordinary furnace, even when rigorously maintained, might last around 15 years. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and built 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 no matter how you look at it. Among its strongest attributes are …

  • having aforever – and easily – renewable source of energy, right 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 run on so little electricity,
  • an incredibly long lifespan – as noted earlier,
  • significantly quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – seeing that much of your geothermal system is buried outside in the yard, and the parts of it that aren’t aren’t put through the same stresses and strains,
  • minor repair costs – besides a modest schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance requirements with a geothermal system since its relatively few parts are merely transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – in contrast to combustion appliances, geothermal systems present no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead producing clean, gloriously 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 why hold out? Make this the year you retrofit and enhance your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Contact Sinton Air Conditioning & Heating, Inc. now about the right way to go about it!
