Making the decision to install a geothermal heating and cooling system can be difficult, so if you have questions or concerns, Mountain Air Heating and Cooling can help. Our technicians can provide accurate estimates when it comes to geothermal installation, and you can save thousands of dollars over a lifetime on your energy bills with this highly efficient, Earth-friendly method of keeping your home or business comfortable year-round.
The Advantages of Geothermal Installation
Geothermal systems come with the highest initial costs of all heating and cooling systems, but they are also the most energy efficient. In fact, it is estimated that you can cut the cost of heating and cooling your home or business in half (or sometimes even more) by installing a geothermal unit. Aside from this, they are incredibly reliable and operate very quietly. These systems can improve property value, as well, which goes a long way toward offsetting some of the initial costs. If you are concerned about the environment, you can rest assured that no natural resources are needed since a geothermal unit makes use of the Earth’s natural temperature, which remains constant just below the surface.
Geothermal Costs and What to Expect
The cost of a geothermal installation can vary quite a bit based on several factors. The most important factor, of course, is the size of the home or building that needs to be heated and cooled. This will impact the size of the unit that you will need to purchase and the size of the loop field, or the area on the property in which underground pipes transfer heat. Another factor that has a major impact on the cost is the ductwork and whether or not existing ducts can be used with the new system. As an example, a 2,500 square foot property would benefit from a 60,000 BTU unit. The cost of installation varies between $18,000 and $30,000 depending upon the landscape, the ductwork, and other factors.
There are a few things that you should consider before you decide to invest in a geothermal installation. These are very important since they can have a significant impact on operation and cost.
- Professional installation is best. There are kits on the market for installing your own geothermal heating and cooling system, but these are not recommended. Specialized tools and equipment are required for a proper installation, and our technicians have decades of experience when it comes to working with these units.
- A warranty is a necessity. When you purchase your geothermal system from us, you will be covered by an industry-leading warranty that will cover you in the event that something should go wrong.
- Safety standards are important. When our technicians provide you with a professional installation, you can have peace of mind since they work according to current standards and regulations in terms of safety and energy efficiency.
