How Do I Know Whether Geothermal Heating and Cooling Is Right for My Mobile Home?

picture of house with geothermal loopYou might well ask someone who still hasn’t heard about geothermal heating and cooling if they’ve been living underground for the last 50 years or so. Of course, that person would undoubtedly miss the irony of your question, since the source of geothermal heating and cooling lies underground.

Anymore, though, most Mobile homeowners know at least something about the perks of a geothermal HVAC system. More of them are mulling one over, too – either as a replacement or upgrade to their present system or as the system they install in that new home they’re having built for them.

Thinking about going geothermal yourself? Well, the benefits certainly are attractive:

  • Trading your old, familiar HVAC system for a geothermal one could help you reduce your heating and cooling costs by as much as 80 percent!
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are incredibly energy efficient. That, in addition to the fact that they have a benignly symbiotic relationship with the environment, make them the most environmentally friendly HVAC systems you could own.
  • Considering the options geothermal systems offer – package units, split systems, and duel-fuel systems, for example – you’re in a better position to ensure that the system you select is the most efficient and effective for your Mobile home.
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems are designed for generations of trusty operation. The fact that they have few parts, need less maintenance, have vertical or horizontal loops installed underground or in ponds or wells, and call for the heat-exchange equipment to be installed indoors, out of the weather, helps greatly.
  • A geothermal heating and cooling system can be installed any time of the year. The weather and the temperature are no impediment, and no added fees are charged for “seasonal reasons.”
  • Only a teeny, tiny bit of your yard need be dedicated to a geothermal heating and cooling system. And what space is necessary is unobtrusive; the “curb appeal” of your home should be completely unaffected.
  • Last, but not least, geothermal heating and cooling systems are becoming more and more affordable – even without the current availability of federal tax credits and rebates. Advances in system design and manufacturing processes as well as increased competition in the marketplace are what’s helping drive costs down.
 
Nevertheless, as inviting as all this is, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a significant investment. Whether or not it’s the right investment for you depends not only on your financial situation but also on such factors as the land space available for the heat-exchange loop and the present ductwork in your home if you’re retrofitting.
