Our Geothermal Heating and Cooling system has now been fully installed for over a month and we couldn’t be happier. The system saved us over a $100 during the month of March where we saw extremely low temperatures and snow. Next month’s electricity bill should show decreasing energy use as the temperature outside has been more on the mild side. The graph below, which I will be updating throughout the year, shows us a 4 year trend of our homes energy costs.
All that is left for the completion of the project is for them to hydro-seed our yard and replace some of our planters stone work. Once a year we will have the system maintained to make sure the system is operating correctly. We will also change the air filter out every 2-3 months to assure the air flowing through the house has less pollen and dust. The desuperheater on the hot water heater will be turned on once the warmer weather stays around. The function of this piece of equipment is to take the unwanted heat from the home and put it towards heating the hot water heater also saving us some money on energy costs.
