Why You Should Switch to Geothermal

July 19, 2013

In many places, this summer has been hotter than ever – which is why you’re probably thinking about ways to save costs on cooling your home. If you haven’t already considered making the switch from your conventional HVAC to a geothermal HVAC system, now might be the perfect time.

About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

A geothermal heating and cooling system is also called a ground source heat pump. This name comes from the fact that geothermal HVAC systems use the ground as a heat source in the winter, and on the alternate side, a heat sink in the summer. A geothermal system works by pushing air and water from the ground in order to make the temperature inside your home warmer or cooler. These central HVAC systems are some of the most efficient heating and cooling systems available, with energy savings of up to 70%.

Cost-effectiveness of Geothermal

If you are a homeowner considering making the switch, you may be wondering, “Is it worth the initial up-front cost?” While it’s true that installing a geothermal heat pump costs a little more than a conventional system, it’s also true that the energy savings will very quickly outweigh the cost up-front. With energy costs on the rise nowadays, a geothermal system may be the best option available for efficient heating and cooling.

But the savings don’t stop there. If you switch to geothermal with Mathers Mechanical, you will find that your new system requires much less maintenance and fewer repairs than a conventional heating and cooling system. Additionally, you may even be able to add on to these savings with the energy efficiency tax credit.

Other Benefits of Geothermal

Besides the huge potential savings, if you switch to a geothermal heating and cooling system, you can be sure that you’ll be contributing to the cause of helping the environment because you’ll be using clean and renewable energy to heat and cool your home. In fact, a geothermal HVAC system may be the most energy efficient, environmentally sound system available for central heating and cooling, because it produces less by way of greenhouse gases.

Additionally, the Geothermal Loop Piping option from Mathers Mechanical has a warranty of 25-50 years – that’s how sure you can be that your new system will work without a hitch. So if you’re racking your brain to figure out what kind of HVAC system will be best for you, don’t think too hard – consider geothermal.
