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

If your Omaha home’s an older one, or even if it’s relatively new, and you’re unhappy 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 aid with up-front costs, interest-free loans are typically available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to consult now with Complete Comfort, the Omaha geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – that is, if you’re earnest about going with a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Complete Comfort can also clue you in as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some measure of financial relief. Tax credits may be applicable too. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are surely an enhancement in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal enhancement. First, a freshly installed geothermal system will significantly cut your home’s utility bills. Right away, 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 well 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 buried in your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … starting cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a wiser choice for you in every way. Among its chief selling points are …

  • having aforever – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling facility rolled up in one orderly package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems need so little electricity,
  • an unusually long lifespan – as noted earlier,
  • significantly quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – since the greater part of your geothermal system is buried outside in the yard, and the components of it that aren’t aren’t subject to the same stresses and strains,
  • lower repair costs – aside from 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 simply transferring heat from the ground, not producing it,
  • cleaner and safer operation – unlike combustion appliances, geothermal systems pose no threat 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 currently known – 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 what else could you need? Make this the year you retrofit and renew your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Talk to Complete Comfort now about the best way to go about it!
