Michigan-based HVAC contractor, Schaafsma Heating and Cooling, now offers geothermal heat pumps that qualify for the 30 percent tax credit incentive provided by the federal government. This federal incentive tax credit on geothermal heat pump systems remains effective until December 31, 2016. The system is able to heat, cool, and provide homes with hot water.
“Schaafsma Heating and Cooling has several geothermal systems to choose from,” said Becky Town, Schaafsma’s marketing coordinator. “Our geothermal systems can be very beneficial for homeowners and the research shows it. We’re hoping consumers take advantage of this feature soon.”
Long-lasting and requiring less maintenance, several major advantages of geothermal heat pump systems include economic and energy efficiency. With an efficiency rating of 45 - 50 percent more than the traditional heating and cooling systems, the total annual energy savings from geothermal systems is 8 kWh of electricity and 40 billion BTU’s of fossil fuels. This means a substantial reduction of reliance on imported fuel. Homeowners with geothermal heat pump systems save a combined $750 million in a 20-year span, and 95 percent of geothermal heat pump owners claim they would recommend this system to others.
Closed-loop systems (including horizontal, vertical, and pond), as well as open-loop systems, and hybrid systems are available for installation at Schaafsma Heating and Cooling.
