It’s one of the most efficient heating and cooling systems on the market today, and yet, few homeowners ever consider geothermal heating and cooling systems when it’s time to install a new unit. Geothermal installation involves putting a large, intricate loop system in the ground, which means digging up your property and a lot of time for the installation process. But once installed, geothermal systems are highly efficient and last many years. Before you can decide whether it’s right for you, however, you’ll have to ask yourself some questions.
Do you have enough space on your property?
One reason many homeowners avoid geothermal installation is because they are unsure of whether the amount of space available on their properties is sufficient. Your technician has to dig a trench on your property for a horizontal installation large enough to fit a set of coils, which requires quite a bit of land. However, they may be able to do a vertical installation that will require a deep hole in the ground instead. Consult with a technician before writing off geothermal because of the space on your land.
Can you afford the installation?
When it comes to geothermal heating and cooling installation, it’s important to keep in mind that the long-term benefits tend to make up for the initial cost. You may be able to obtain rebates or get a financing plan for a new system. And even if not, a geothermal installation is an investment in your future and in the environment around you. These units hold up for many years with few problems and they use very little energy to operate.
Have you considered all of your options?
What is most important when it comes to selecting a new heating and cooling system is that you consider all of your options and make an informed decision about the type of heating and cooling systems you want in your home. Solar heating and cooling systems are also an option, as are more affordable air-source heat pumps. Discuss your budget and your needs with a professional before making the final decision.
