If you’ve been thinking about going green and making the switch to a geothermal system, now’s the time to start planning. Most drilling companies are currently booked out for geothermal work through the end of the year and are already booking into next spring.
Make Plans for Geothermal Installation Today
Even if you can’t get started on geothermal installation until the spring of 2023, there are different ways that you can start to prepare your home for geothermal today.
One step you can take is getting an energy audit to help reveal any gaps in your home’s current energy efficiency. An energy audit can also show you where your home’s insulation is lacking, which is an important first step as your home needs to be well-insulated for a geothermal system. The right insulation can help lessen a geothermal system’s workload, help it reach maximum efficiency, and increase the system’s overall life expectancy.
Additionally, something else you can consider to go along with a new geothermal system are solar panels. In fact, new regulations in Colorado encourage the installation of solar systems, which can help to generate up to 200% of your projected energy usage. Solar panels work to create electricity and help you save long-term by reducing your energy bills.
What You Can Save On Geothermal Installation
If you’re looking for savings on geothermal installation, you’re in luck because the 26% federal tax credit on residential ground source heat pump installation has been extended from December 31, 2022, through 2034. So even if you can’t get started on geothermal installation until next spring, you can still save long-term.
And if you want to consider all of your options, there are other affordable energy-efficient alternatives to geothermal, including Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs). ASHPs can help reduce your heating and cooling expenses by about 50%, and they work with solar panels to help maximize heating and cooling. And our partnership with Xcel Energy can help you save with nearly 30 rebates, rewards, and program opportunities.
