Why You Should Consider a Geothermal System For Your Home

December 11, 2019

You no longer have to live in fear of the day each month when you receive your electricity bill. Consider installing a geothermal system to cut costs and help the environment. Here is a closer look at some of the top reasons to go geothermal.

1. It Cuts Your Electricity Bills

While geothermal energy requires an up-front investment, you will start to realize savings practically immediately. You need to make sure that you have a system that is large enough to accommodate all of your electrical needs.

Geothermal energy will not completely eliminate your heating bill, but it will make your usage much more efficient. When your efficiency skyrockets by many multiples, you are able to recover much of the costs of installing the system because your heating bill will be a fraction of what it used to be.

2. Geothermal Is Environmentally Friendly

Electricity usage raises your carbon footprint. The more electricity you use, the more pollution and harm to the environment you cause. Cutting your electricity consumption means that you can make a difference to live a more socially responsible lifestyle. While you cannot save the environment all on your own, you can feel better knowing that one step that you have taken has made some impact.

3. There Are Tax Benefits

The government wants you to spend money on things that help reduce pollution. It is a social good. As a result, there is a federal tax credit that allows you to recoup a significant amount of your up-front expenditure on your geothermal system.

The great thing about this is that the tax benefits come in the form of a credit as opposed to a deduction. This means that it reduces your tax bill dollar for what you spend on your system. When you combine this with the financing options that are available, it cuts the amount that comes out of your pocket for your geothermal system.
