When’s The Best Time to Install A Home Geothermal System?
The History of Home Geothermal Systems
Geothermal is a reliable and historically-proven renewable energy. The modern concept of a geothermal heat pump actually has not changed much from the first design in 1852 by physicist Lord Kelvin and the first residential installation in 1948 by physicist Carl Neilsen. In the decades since, geothermal technology has been implemented in residential, commercial, and governmental settings alike as a highly efficient heating and cooling solution.
However, even though scientists have known about geothermal energy for over a century, many people remain under-informed about it. In recent years, there have been many educational programs and financial incentives to increase awareness about geothermal technology, and more and more homeowners and businesses are now beginning to replace their furnaces with clean, affordable geothermal.
Geothermal Heat Pump Innovation
The mechanics of many geothermal systems are similar in design, but the real value in choosing Dandelion is our innovative software that comes included with every geothermal system installation. Our software empowers homeowners to easily access information about their system and monitor its performance anytime, anywhere. All Dandelion-heated homes can benefit from accessing new software features without having to install a new system every time there’s an opportunity for an upgrade. In other words, there’s no such thing as an “obsolete” Dandelion system!
Recession-Proof Your Home
Heating and cooling your home using geothermal energy instead of outdated nonrenewable fuels empowers American homeowners to protect themselves against the unpredictability of economic instabilities that are caused by inevitable recessions, price fluctuations, and supply chain disruptions. When the price of fuel oil changes, you don’t have to worry. Upgrading to geothermal now is an investment that will put you ahead of the curve.
Increase Your Home’s Value
A popular strategy for increasing the value of your home before selling is installing modern appliances and upgrading to renewable energies to adapt your older property to be suitable for a modern lifestyle. Home buyers are willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars more for sustainable, modern homes that come with significantly smaller maintenance and utilities bills. But why not have your cake and eat it too? An even smarter strategy is to not only increase the value of your home but also reap the benefits of geothermal heating and cooling for yourself. You can enjoy the savings, safety, comfort, and reliability of geothermal technology for yourself, and you still have the option to sell your house down the line.
Geothermal Installation Timeline
It’s always a good idea to start the geothermal process early. Upgrading to geothermal takes time because, unlike traditional furnaces, they aren’t one-size-fits-all and they need to be customized to each home’s needs. Dandelion is meticulous about accuracy when designing and installing to provide quality, customized geothermal for each home. For this reason, we recommend that you reach out and begin exploring geothermal before your traditional furnace equipment needs to be replaced. If you’re not ready to install right away, that’s alright – we’d still love to help you plan your dream home!
