What is best time to consider replacing old or inefficient heating or cooling equipment?

The best time to replace this type of equipment is when it is not in use. Replace heating equipment in the summer and cooling equipment in the winter. Plan ahead. You’ll get your best deal in the off-season and have more time to consider rebates and other options.

What is the return on investment for geothermal or solar alternatives?

The upfront costs for geothermal and solar are higher than a standard system, but once installed, you’ll find the operating costs are much lower than a standard system. When it comes to geothermal and solar, one size does not fit all. Certain factors like soil conditions (for geothermal) and what direction your roof is facing (for solar) play a large part in determining your return on investment. Solar PV (for electricity) and solar thermal (for domestic hot water) each have different requirements, benefits and incentives so be sure to understand the difference. Contact us and we can come to your home and tell you more about how you can take advantage of geothermal and solar alternatives.
