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

If your Indianapolis 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 won’t likely ever be better. And, if you need assistance with initial expenditures, interest-free loans are often available to homeowners from manufacturers, vendors, and installation contractors. You’d be wise to speak now with Bassett Services Inc., the Indianapolis 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. Bassett Services Inc. can also inform you as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer financial relief of some kind. Tax credits may be available as well. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are unquestionably an upgrade in energy efficiency over the more customary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the up-front cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a recently installed geothermal system will significantly lower 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! As time goes on, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’ll certainly have your geothermal system for a very long time.

Note that a traditional furnace, even when correctly maintained, might give you only 15 years of decent 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 … initial cost considerations aside, a geothermal heating and cooling system is more beneficial for you no matter how you look at it. Among its chief attributes are …

  • having an endlessly – 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 run on so little electricity,
  • a terrifically long lifespan – as described previously,
  • markedly quieter operation than standard heating and cooling systems – seeing that most of your geothermal system is buried beneath your lawn, and the portions of it that aren’t aren’t subject to the same stresses and strains,
  • lower repair costs – except for an unobtrusive schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance needs 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, awesomely 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 just transferring heat from the ground into your home, and in the summer, it’s removing heat to keep your home cool.

So what’s the delay? Make this the year you retrofit and revive your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Contact Bassett Services Inc. now about the proper way to go about it!
