After moving to a new area, I realized immediately that we needed to replace the old HVAC system.
My wife said we should probably just have it repaired, but I didn’t want to deal with costly energy bills. It’s a large house so I feel that it’s essential to look into the most energy efficient heat and AC products on the market. So we had a local contractor come by to discuss what was available in the way of HVAC components. We learned a lot about dual-fuel heating systems, boilers, and even geothermal heat pumps. Honestly, the geothermal HVAC systems are mainly what caught my attention. Some of these systems are designed so well that they can last as long as 50 years with regular maintenance and care. That was hard for me to believe at first, but the man was true to his word talking about these heating and cooling systems. A geothermal HVAC is friendly towards the environment too since there is no combustion involved. It’s all about moving heating energy from an underground source where the temperatures remain stable. Some people even connect their geothermal HVAC systems to large water sources which also have relatively stable temperatures to pull heating energy from. In the summer, these systems are able to be put in reverse operation to send the heating away from the house producing the cooling effect that we desire in the hot season. I decided to make this investment. Though it was costly, so far it has been worth it as we are saving bigtime on the energy bills.
