Time to Retrofit Your Boise Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

If your Boise home’s an older one, or even if it’s relatively new, and you’re dissatisfied with your current HVAC system, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you advance to geothermal. Prices will surely never be as ideal again. And, if you need aid with up-front costs, interest-free loans are usually available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be well-advised to speak now with Idaho Geothermal, LLC, the Boise geothermal specialists, about what financing options you may have – particularly if you’re really committed to installing a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Idaho Geothermal, LLC can also clue you in 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 also. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are definitely an upgrade in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a recently installed geothermal system will significantly cut your home’s utility bills. Without delay, you could see savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! In due course, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’d better believe it, you’re going to enjoy your geothermal system for a very long time.

It’s generally conceded that a regular furnace, even when rigorously maintained, might last around 15 years. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and engineered to last up to 30 years. And the ground loop buried in your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … up-front cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is more advantageous for you in every way. Among its prime attributes are …

  • having aforever – and easily – renewable source of energy, straight 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 incredibly long lifespan – as noted earlier,
  • markedly quieter operation than run-of-the-mill heating and cooling systems – seeing that most of your geothermal system is buried outside in the yard, and the components of it that aren’t aren’t put through the same stresses and strains,
  • lower repair costs – except for a light schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance necessities with a geothermal system since its relatively few parts are merely transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – unlike combustion appliances, geothermal systems present no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead delivering clean, sublimely breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank among the most environmentally friendly of any system you could find – 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 why wait any longer? Make this the year you retrofit and enhance your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk with Idaho Geothermal, LLC now about the right way to go about it!
