Here is a quick test to help you determine if your home’s Geothermal HVAC system needs replacing.
- Is your system more than 15 years old?
- Does your system seem to run longer to achieve the desired cooling and heating temperatures?
- Are your utility bills increasing?
- Is your HVAC repairman’s phone number on speed dial?
If you answered yes to two or more of those questions, chances are your system is in need of replacement. Masters Heating & Cooling, Inc. knows this is not the news most homeowners want to hear, but you can rest assured that we are here to help. We can analyze your system and determine not only if it needs replacement, but also advise you of your replacement options.
Geothermal Heating & Cooling
As part of that process, our HVAC professionals are excited to let our customers know about geothermal heating and cooling. Geothermal technology consists of a series of horizontal and vertical bored loops of piping, which utilizes the constant ground temperature not far below the soil surface. During the summer months, hot air is removed from you home, cooled and returned. Whereas during the cold winter months, the process is reversed. Geothermal systems can also deliver hot water to your home.
This replacement option is growing ever-more popular due to a number of factors. First, it is much more energy efficient than traditional forced air systems. Geothermal systems can reduce your utility bills by as much as 70 percent. This also results in less electricity-burning emissions and a reduced carbon footprint on our environment. Geothermal is also a great investment; the initial cost will be paid in 5-10 years, after which the savings go directly into your pocket.
