Looking to take advantage of federal tax credits, as well as improve your home’s efficiency this year? Then it might be just the time to look at replacing your outdated heat pump with a geothermal unit that is ENERGY STAR rated.
Geothermal heat pumps can provide residential homes with space heating, cooling, domestic water heating or a combination of these functions, and can also include options for liquid circulation, thermal storage, air circulation, air cleaning, and dehumidifying or humidifying your home. Also, additional supplements to the heat pump can be added which connect to your water heater and will heat your home’s water- essentially, for free!
These units are great both for your home and the environment because they use the earth’s natural heat to provide the aforementioned functions to your home instead of trying to pull heat from the air. In the winter, they move the heat from the earth into your home. Conversely, in the summer, they pull the heat from your home and discharge it into the ground. Approximately 70% of the energy used in a geothermal heat pump system is renewable energy pulled from the ground!
Through December 31, 2016, ANY homeowner who installs an ENERGY STAR qualified geothermal heat pump is eligible for a 30% federal tax credit. Learn more about how to claim your credit HERE.
