It very well could be! Geothermal heating is one of the most dependable and efficient of all residential heating methods. However, as is the case with any other heating system, there is no guarantee that a geothermal heating system is going to be the best fit for you or your home. Here is some information to consider regarding the installation of a geothermal heating system in Snohomish, WA.
As you can imagine, the geothermal heat pump installation is a pretty involved process. It requires that a loop system be installed on your property, and that involves planning and some excavation. It is not the cheapest heating installation out there, but we strongly urge you to give it some serious consideration regardless. If you look only at the initial price tag, then you are undoubtedly going to overlook some serious financial benefits. There are tax incentives at the federal level for new geothermal installations, so be sure to inquire about this when working with a member of our team.
You should also keep in mind the long term investment that you are making not only in your comfort, but in your budget. While there is an upfront investment to consider, you are also looking at more than a decade of very efficient service from the ground source heat pump itself, while you can expect your geothermal loop to last over half a century! Contact us with any questions that you may have regarding the financial considerations of a geothermal installation.
One of the reasons why you must work with a qualified, experienced geothermal contractor is to determine if your property is actually a good candidate for a geothermal installation. A ground loop will have to be installed, and a horizontal installation does require some space. A vertical installation may be used if space is short, but that requires some drilling to be done on the property. Soil characteristics and other factors must be considered before determining which, if any, installation type is best for your property.
