Do you want the most efficient solution possible for cooling your Tar Heel, North Carolina, home? Installing a geothermal system may be the right choice for you. Here are a few things to know about geothermal system efficiency before you choose a heating and cooling unit for your home:
Monthly Cooling Costs
When installing a new heating and cooling system in your home, you want to be sure that you can save as much money on your monthly energy bills as possible. That’s what makes a geothermal heat pump a great choice. Geothermal systems use far less electricity than air conditioners and furnaces because they use heat energy from the ground to control the temperature in your home.
By some estimates, geothermal heat pumps can save around 15 percent per month — and often even more — in energy costs, which translates to big savings over time. After installing your system, you should see an almost immediate decrease in your energy bills.
Geothermal Installation Costs
One thing to consider is that the installation of a geothermal heat pump can cost more than other systems. But you’ll offset these costs in several ways. For instance, the money saved on your monthly bills will easily make up for your installation costs over time.
In addition, several tax credits are available that can help offset the installation cost. After you apply the tax credits, which can be as much as 30 percent of the cost of your geothermal system, you’ll pay the same as you would for a traditional HVAC system.
Installing a geothermal system is a great choice if you’re interested in reducing your heating and cooling costs.
