Time to Retrofit Your Georgetown County Home with a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System?

Regardless of whether your Georgetown County home is old or new, if you’re dissatisfied with the HVAC system you’ve got, 2018 could be the year – should be the year – you move up 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. It’d be to your advantage to consult now with Waccamaw Heating & Cooling, the Georgetown County geothermal experts, about what financing options you may have – especially if you’re serious about installing a geothermal heating and cooling system this year. Waccamaw Heating & Cooling can also clue you in as to whether or not any current state or local homeowner programs might offer some measure of financial relief. Tax credits may be applicable as well. After all, geothermal heating and cooling systems are unmistakably an upgrade in energy efficiency over ordinary HVAC systems.

There’s some good news, too, about the initial cost of a geothermal upgrade. First, a newly installed geothermal system will lower your home’s utility bills considerably. From the start, you could see savings of anywhere from 20 to 50 percent on cooling – and 30 to 60 percent on heating! One day, then, your geothermal system will pay for itself. And you’ll certainly enjoy your geothermal system for a very long time.

Figure that a traditional furnace, even when well maintained, might hang in there for 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 better for you in every way. Among its greatest advantages are …

  • having aforever – and easily – renewable source of energy, directly from the earth,
  • being an efficient “two-in-one” system – heating and cooling [[capacity rolled up in one neat package
  • minimal operating costs – since geothermal systems run on so little electricity,
  • an incredibly long lifespan – as mentioned previously,
  • appreciably quieter operation than typical heating and cooling systems – since the greater part of your geothermal system is buried outside in the yard, and the portions of it that aren’t don’t have to endure the same stresses and strains,
  • lower repair costs – other than a light schedule of inspections and changing or cleaning filters, you have fewer maintenance necessities 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 danger of carbon monoxide poisoning, instead delivering clean, wonderfully breathable air, and, of course,
  • heating and cooling capabilities that rank among the most environmentally friendly of any system on the market – 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 hold out? Make this the year you retrofit and enhance your home with a geothermal heating and cooling system. Consult with Waccamaw Heating & Cooling now about the right way to go about it!
