We’ve written before about how great heat pumps are and why they are such a good investment in this part of the country. We’ve also discussed why you may want to consider the use of a geothermal heating system. This week, we want to remind you that there is a great opportunity waiting for you and your geothermal plans, but that it won’t be waiting much longer.
If you have been thinking about a geothermal heating and cooling system installation in Marysville, WA, now is definitely the time to act. Why? Because a truly incredible federal tax credit is about to expire.
What Is the Federal Tax Credit For?
There are a number of federal tax credits for energy efficiency available to residential property owners at the moment. The one that we’re focused on today is the geothermal tax credit. This tax credit entitles property owners to a 30% credit on the new installation of a geothermal heating and cooling system. There is no upper limit to the savings, and installation costs are included.
This credit expires at the end of the year, so it is vital that you claim your credit before December 31st, 2016 draws to a close. What does that mean? That you should pick up the phone and dial our number now to schedule service, before time runs out!
With a geothermal heat pump, you use heat that is stored in the ground in order to warm your home with incredible efficiency. In the summer, you can use the same system to remove heat from the air in your home and to sink it into the ground. The moderate temperature of the ground also means that this direction of heat transfer is quite efficient. Heat naturally moves toward cooler environments, remember.
