You already own the property – why not utilize the free energy source just below the surface of your yard? A WaterFurnace geothermal system can deliver an astounding five units of energy for every one unit of electrical energy used.
But what does that mean for you? It means you can condition your home for much less than your neighbors and friends.The systems we install are the most efficient geothermal products
available. Homeowners can realize savings up to 70% for heating, cooling, and hot water!
The 30% Renewable Energy Tax Credit often results in less than 5 years to make up the difference of your geothermal system vs. a high end conventional system. A parts and labor warranty eliminates any major cost on the unit for the first 10 years, and 5 years on the other items. The life expectancy of the unit is 20+ years vs. 12-15 years on conventional units. When the unit is replaced, the loop and other equipment can be reused. The loop pipe is warranted 55 years from the manufacturer. The replacement geothermal unit's cost, by itself, is similar to a high end conventional unit.
Overall, it is hard to find a better investment. Additional dollars in your bank account every month from utility savings are tax free. These savings normally more than cover the increase in payments when you add the cost of the system to your mortgage. Typically, you can have positive cash flow starting the first year, break even in less than 5 years, and have continous savings for the next 15 years or more. When utility rates increase, your rate of return increases. Think about locking into great investment and energy savings for the life of your home. If you decide to sell your home, the geothermal system will add value and help generate buyers.
