FACT: Geothermal systems provide the most efficient, comfortable and environmentally friendly method of heating & cooling.
Cost, savings, earning potential – these are the ‘Big Three’ that homeowners across the nation think about when it comes to retrofitting, building, or renovating their homes.
Saving money has never been more important, and with a ClimateMaster geothermal heat pump, the homeowner is able to cut the costs of another ‘Big Three’. Heating, cooling and hot water make up 70% of the homeowner’s utility bill, which means using any traditional HVAC system that is far less efficient than a ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling system (400-600% efficiency), will make the utility bill skyrocket.
When researching the cost of the initial investment a homeowner must make on a ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling system, that homeowner needs to take into account the savings and earnings they will receive in the future.
Cost savings occur when there’s a reduction that causes future spending to fall below the level of current spending. These cost savings may then be removed from budgets, reinvested, or redirected to other spending priorities. Therefore, even though the initial investment of a ClimateMaster geothermal heat pump is higher than a traditional HVAC system, the future spending (future heating, cooling, and hot water bill) can be up to 80% less than current spending. That is money saved that can be used for other household updates, or simply to have a good time and take the family on a well-deserved vacation.
But cash saved is not the only benefit that comes from a ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling system. In fact, there is a whole list of advantages that improve earnings and savings for the homeowner that’s a mile long.
Being that it’s a renewable energy source, geothermal is safe for the environment. It does not pollute, unlike coal and other energy sources.
This is the most efficient source of energy to heat and cool the home in the 21st Century, and over one million Americans have already installed a ClimateMaster geothermal heat pump in order to begin their savings and see their earnings potential rise.
Also helping with the initial installation cost is a guaranteed 30% Federal tax credit that’s given to the homeowner who chooses to install a ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling system. This is an unlimited credit which means it can be used to cover equipment costs, labor and landscaping.
When looking into the future, there’s other savings to be had. Maintenance costs always happen to the homeowner. The old saying: “When the going gets tough the tough get going,” really doesn’t apply to traditional HVAC systems. The gas furnace seems to know when Old Man Winter is outside the door and not only offers substandard performance, but many times will simply just break down. Calling out a maintenance man in the middle of, say, a New England winter, is yet another issue the homeowner has to deal with…and yet another bill he or she will have to pay.
This, as we all know, happens when the sun is blistering hot, as well. The traditional air conditioning works harder, takes more energy, causes the utility bill to rise astronomically in some cases, and can break down if pushed too hard. Another maintenance man, another bill, and a family living in very uncomfortable conditions are the result.
With a ClimateMaster geothermal heat pump installed, the homeowner is looking at very low maintenance for the shelf-life of the system (approximately 25 years+). The homeowner also receives a distribution of perfect temperatures throughout their house, no matter if it’s hot or cold outside, and a very happy family living in comfort comes along with the package too.
Cost versus savings and earnings potential: When all the factors are weighed, ClimateMastergeothermal heat pumps are the only choice for a comfortable home, a happy family, and a far lower utility bill.
