Time to Update Your New Haven County Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

If your New Haven County home’s an older one, or even if it’s relatively new, and you’re annoyed with the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you retrofit with geothermal. Prices will surely never be as good again. And, if you need aid with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to talk now with Nero Air Conditioning and Heating, the New Haven County geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – if, in fact you’re sincere about upgrading to a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Nero Air Conditioning and Heating can also clue you in as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some sort of financial relief. Tax credits may be applicable too. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are unmistakably an enhancement in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal retrofit. First, a freshly installed geothermal system will cut 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! As time goes on, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’ll certainly own your geothermal system for a very long time.

Consider that a conventional furnace, even when conscientiously maintained, might last, oh, say, 15 years. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and built to last up to 30 years. And the ground loop beneath 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 advantages are …

  • having a perpetually – and easily – renewable source of energy, straight from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capability bundled in one tidy package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems demand so little electricity,
  • an unusually long lifespan – as noted above,
  • significantly quieter operation than typical heating and cooling systems – given that much of your geothermal system is buried beneath your lawn, and the elements of it that aren’t don’t have to endure the same stresses and strains,
  • minor repair costs – other than a light schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance requirements 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 pose no threat of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead producing clean, awesomely 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 just transferring heat from the ground into your home, and in the summer, it’s removing heat to keep your home cool.

So what’s holding you back? Make this the year you retrofit and renew your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Consult with Nero Air Conditioning and Heating now about the right way to go about it!
