Did you pay huge electric bills this summer because of an aging air conditioning system struggling to keep up with our extreme heat and humidity? If your system is more than 10 years old, you may want to look into replacing it. And replacing it with a geothermal system might be the best bet for your home.
Geothermal heating and cooling is no longer considered cutting edge technology. It’s a proven heating and cooling method, saves energy, reduces utility costs, and uses the earth’s ability to store heat. In fact, studies by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have shown that homes utilizing geothermal heat pumps can save:
- 50 – 87% off heating costs
- Up to 50% off cooling bills
Over a relatively short period of time, the reduction of energy usage alone will save more than your initial upgrade costs of purchasing new geothermal equipment and having it installed. Not only that, but new geothermal systems may qualify for a federal tax credit of up to 30% of their total cost.
At Ricotta Heating and Air, we specialize in providing a variety of geothermal heat pumps to St. Louis, Missouri and surrounding areas. We have specially trained HVAC technicians who can help determine the optimal pump and ground loop configuration to heat and cool your home or office.
