Time to Update Your Central New Jersey Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

If your Central New Jersey 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 advance to geothermal. Prices aren’t likely ever to be better. And, if you need help with up-front costs, interest-free loans are usually available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be wise to consult now with CMS Geothermal, the Central New Jersey geothermal specialists, about what financing options you may have – that is, if you’re really committed to installing a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. CMS Geothermal can also counsel you as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some sort of financial relief. Tax credits may come into play too. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are unquestionably a step (or two, or three!) up in energy efficiency over conventional HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the up-front cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a recently installed geothermal system will reduce your home’s utility bills significantly. From the start, you could see 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 enjoy your geothermal system for a very long time.

Bear in mind that an ordinary furnace, even when well maintained, might hang in there for 15 years of reliable service. A geothermal system? It’s mechanics are designed and fabricated to last up to 30 years. And the ground loop beneath your yard is good for 50 years at least!

So … preliminary cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is better for you in every way. Among its prime assets are …

  • having an eternally – and easily – renewable source of energy, right from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capacity bundled in one tidy package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems need so little electricity,
  • an unusually long lifespan – as described above,
  • significantly quieter operation than run-of-the-mill heating and cooling systems – since most of your geothermal system is buried in the earth, and the components of it that aren’t don’t undergo the same stresses and strains,
  • reduced repair costs – other than an undemanding 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 pose no threat of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead delivering clean, gloriously 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 simply 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 CMS Geothermal now about the right way to go about it!
