Get a 26% Tax Credit With a Geothermal System
Save money AND help the earth with a geothermal HVAC system from John’s Service and Sales.
Advantages of Geothermal Energy
During the 2010s, geothermal energy grew to be used in a number of different applications like geothermal heating systems, which heat water by piping it through heat sources in the ground to be used in a variety of ways.
Some advantages of geothermal energy include heating and cooling of residential and commercial buildings such as homes, offices, and shops with the help of geothermal heat pumps. Moreover, geothermal heating has the industrial potential to dry crops, heat water at fish farms, grow plants in greenhouses, and be applied to a range of other industrial processes.
These eco-friendly geothermal systems are not only beneficial for the planet, but they also offer significant utility bill savings. Geothermal HVAC units help in reducing your monthly expense of heating and cooling your home and also allow you to qualify for incentives, reimbursements, and geothermal tax credits.
As part of a bill passed by the federal government, federal geothermal tax credits are now back in place! The credit declines every year you wait, but for now, through December 31, 2020, a 26% tax credit off of the total cost of your geothermal HVAC system can be applied.
December 31, 2020 –
Make sure you get your tax savings before it’s too late!
Geothermal Heating and Cooling
John’s Service and Sales offers flexible geothermal systems that can be leveraged for both heating and cooling in your home, office, or any other facility. The heat pumps in geothermal systems work more efficiently than other types of HVAC units because they aren’t relying on energy-intensive processes like burning natural gas. This entire process is seamless and ensures that your home or facility is kept at adequate temperatures year round.
While some HVAC systems consume fossil fuels directly, a geothermal HVAC system does not. By using heat pumps to access the heat generated inside of the earth, these systems have access to a constant flow of heat with which to warm your home. If you’ve ever walked into a cave, you will know that the air inside is also relatively cool. Both the internal heat inside the earth and internal cool temperatures can be used for heating and cooling in your building. The temperature in the earth is constant, regardless of the weather outside, so you can rely on geothermal the same way you might rely on a traditional heating system.
Geothermal Heating A geothermal heating system works by circulating water underground in a loop to absorb heat generated by the earth. This water is then carried to a heat pump, which distributes the heat evenly throughout your space. Traditional heat sources rely on heating the cold air outside using a fuel like natural gas, which means they have to work much harder.
Geothermal Cooling As might be expected, geothermal cooling works by using essentially the exact opposite process. Water is circulated to gather heat from your home and is then pumped below the surface of the ground to cool areas. This water, now cooled, is pumped back up to your home to create cool, dehumidified air. Similar to the issues created by using air sources for heating, air source cooling is inefficient by its very nature. A traditional AC system is forced to cool already hot air from outside in an energy-intensive process.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, geothermal heating and cooling is one of the most efficient HVAC technologies available. Remember, you can leverage a 26% tax credit off the cost of your system by installing by the end of 2020.
John’s Service and Sales technicians are trained in the design, installation, preventive maintenance, and repair of geothermal heating and cooling systems, so you can be confident that energy savings will continue for years to come. We can come out to your home, office, or other facility and determine whether or not geothermal is right for you. Connect with us today to schedule a consultation!
