Take Back Control of Your Home Comfort

landing_r1_c1_s2When it comes to operating a home there are so many costs and issues that can weigh on the homeowner’s shoulders, that it can suddenly feel as if the home is running them and not the other way around.

As everyone knows, the reason a person purchases or builds a family ‘homestead’ is to make the family happy for many years to come. The home should be in good working order; for some, the paint should be perfect, bedrooms should be the right size, the dream kitchen should be there, etcetera. Having your own home is a dream come true, which is where the old saying: ‘My home is my castle,’ came from in the first place.

Prices skyrocket; oil pries rise, gas prices continue to rise, electric costs continue to rise – you get the picture. And when it comes to one of the most important systems of the household, the HVAC system, the homeowner can see a definite rise in the utility bill if the system being used is substandard.

Efficiency is what the homeowner needs to bring those utility bills back down where they should be. Heating, cooling and hot water make up 70% of a homeowner’s utility bill – and when that utility bill appears in the dead heat of summer or the freezing cold winter months, a homeowner can feel as if they’re working just to pay for their family to be comfortable. There is a way, however, around all that. There is a way for the homeowner to take back control and once again be in charge of their home comfort.

For fifty years, ClimateMaster has been in the business of providing homeowners with geothermal heating and cooling systems. Geothermal technology is not a new technology; in fact, it was discovered and utilized decades ago. By tapping into the earth – which is the largest source of renewable energy we have on this planet – people are able to heat and cool their homes at a far less rate.

A ClimateMaster geothermal heat pump is run on a ‘loop’ system that connects the earth to the home. You see, just below the surface of the ground, the earth remains at a constant temperature all year long (varying only slightly, depending on geographical location.) That consistent temperature is there no matter if it’s snowing or scalding up above. The ClimateMaster geothermal heat pump takes advantage of that energy, and the homeowner receives perfect temperatures and perfect comfort for their family.

The ClimateMaster geothermal heat pump is 400-600% energy efficient; compare that to a traditional gas furnace that can only give the homeowner 94-95% efficiency, at best. With the ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling system in place, a homeowner can see up to an 80% drop in their heating, cooling, and hot water bill, along with the fact that no matter when they walk over the threshold, their house will always be perfectly heated or perfectly cooled – with no hot or cold pockets left over.

It seems impossible to a homeowner to see that utility bill drop, especially when the months are blistering hot or freezing cold, but with the ClimateMaster geothermal heat pump running the show, that drop turns from an impossibility to an absolute fact.

When it comes to the initial cost of the ClimateMaster geothermal heat pump, a homeowner weighs the cost against the savings and immediately sees the return on investment they will receive if they head down the ‘geothermal path.’ In addition, they receive a 30% guaranteed Federal tax incentive that covers costs, labor and landscaping; as well as certain state incentives that can be found.

To sum up? ClimateMaster geothermal heat pumps promise many things and deliver on them all: Superior air quality, lower utility bills and, perhaps most important of all, YOU take back control of your home comfort!
