Time to Update Your Meridian Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

If your Meridian 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 retrofit with geothermal. Prices will surely never be as low again. And, if you need aid with the up-front cash outlay, interest-free loans are frequently available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. It’d be to your advantage to speak now with Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning Co., the Meridian geothermal authority, about what financing options you may have – that is, if you’re really committed to upgrading to a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning Co. can also advise you as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some sort of financial relief. Tax credits may be available too. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are definitely a step (or two, or three!) up 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 slash your home’s utility bills significantly. You could see immediate savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! Eventually, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’d better believe it, you’re going to own your geothermal system for a very long time.

Consider that a regular furnace, even when correctly 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 … up-front cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a wiser choice for you from pretty much any angle. Among its top assets are …

  • having an unceasingly – and easily – renewable source of energy, right from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capability bundled in one trim package
  • reduced operating costs – since geothermal systems demand so little electricity,
  • an incredibly long lifespan – as mentioned previously,
  • significantly quieter operation than traditional heating and cooling systems – given that the greater part of your geothermal system is buried in the earth, and the parts of it that aren’t don’t have to endure the same stresses and strains,
  • minor repair costs – besides a modest schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance demands 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 present no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead producing clean, marvelously breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that are among the most environmentally friendly of any system around – 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 why hold out? Make this the year you retrofit and upgrade your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Contact Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning Co. now about the proper way to go about it!
