A common misconception is that geothermal is only an option for new homes and not for existing ones. In reality, we do just as many existing home installations that replace heating & air conditioning systems with geothermal heating and cooling systems as we do new homes!
The team at Arronco Comfort Air can install a quality geothermal heating and cooling system in your Cincinnati home—get a free estimate today!
Our vertical loop systems are able to be installed in small area’s and minimize disturbance to the yard. When needed and/or requested, we can also do a “horizontal bore” from the drilling area to the foundation to further eliminate damage to existing yards. Inside the home, our geothermal units are typically set in the same place as your existing equipment as they are not much larger in size. Existing ductwork is also utilized in most cases with slight modifications. Our complete in-house crew of loop installers, certified geothermal installers, plumbers, and electricians are able to handle complete retrofit installations with ease.
If you’re still not sure if a geothermal unit is the right move for your home, considering the following benefits. Geothermal units can help:
In most cases, our customers inquire about geothermal when their existing system is reaching the end of its usable lifespan and they are looking at options. Geothermal systems are typically double what a high-efficiency gas furnace or heat pump system’s lifespan would be. We are typically cutting yearly energy cost by $800 to $1200 per year, making the payback in the 4 to 5-year range. From an ROI standpoint – this is a 20-25% return! Factor in the enhanced comfort, no noisy outdoor unit, and equipment with double the lifespan of conventional equipment and it makes a Geothermal system from Arronco a very wise investment.
