SHE – the Super Home Extravaganza – runs 4-8 p.m. today, March 23; and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, March 24 and 25, at the Fond du Lac County Fairgrounds Expo Building.

Make plans now to stop at the ACG booth at the 2018 Home & Garden Expo this weekend in New Holstein.
Calumet County’s only home and garden show will take place 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, March 3, and 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday, March 4, at 2245 Calumet Drive – the former Tractor Supply store.
This year’s expo will showcase area high school tech ed programs. Students will raffle projects that they designed and constructed. Proceeds go back to their schools. You can purchase raffle tickets at the show.
Kiel High School Tech Ed students are building a 5’ x 5’ playhouse which features a Dutch door, a hinged window, and white fascia and soffits.
Chilton High School Tech Ed students are building a pair of Adirondack chairs and table and two sets of Bean Bag Toss.
The New Holstein Art Club and the New Holstein National Art Honor Society will operate the concessions.
Besides talking with us at ACG about geothermal – including the tax credits now available, visit with other home building and remodeling exhibitors. There will be seminars and a kids’ Project Zone – all under one roof.
Admission is $5 per person. We hope to see you there.
Great news! The expired geothermal tax credits have been fully restored retroactively for 2017 as part of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018.
Geothermal credits were extended through 2021 to bring them into parity with solar.
There is now a 30% tax credit for the costs of the geothermal energy technology installations from 2017 through 2019.
The credit will decline to 26% for 2020, to 22% for 2021, and then sunset on Dec. 31, 2021.
If you have been thinking about geothermal – and you should be – you now have a new opportunity to benefit from tax credits as well.
ENJOY the full 30% credit. Contact Advanced Custom Geothermal soon to get your installation on our schedule.
Finally … a chance to look at five beautiful and unique new homes in the area showcasing custom features. And one, the Christel and Heiberger Project 2 — a 2,323-square-foot lake house on Glen Flora Road — also features the work of Advanced Custom Geothermal.

With December temperatures starting to feel more like a frigid January’s, the winter of 2016-2017 is shaping up to be cold and snowy.
That meshes with the predictions of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). According to its weather.gov blog, the odds favor colder-than-normal temperatures along the northern tier of states eastward to the Great Lakes as well as above-average precipitation in this region.
What does that mean for those with an energy-efficient geothermal system? Steady, affordable comfort!
That’s because a geothermal heat pump collects heat from the ground. The ground below the frost line – where the geothermal piping is installed — maintains a steady temperature below the surface year round. As the outdoor air temperature plummets, your geothermal heat pump maintains its efficiency.
Don’t have geothermal yet? Call ACG today so we can discuss your winter heating and summer cooling comfort.
You’ve had that geothermal unit for 20 or more years. It has given you comfort winter and summer AND saved you money.
Now your next wise move? Replace it with an upgraded geothermal system while tax credits are still in place.
You haven’t got much time. Systems that meet federal Energy Star criteria must be placed in service on or before Dec. 31, 2016. It doesn’t even have to be your principal residence.
After Dec. 31, the 30% tax credit disappears, according to energy.gov
Call Advanced Custom Geothermal today at 920-894-3999 to get on the schedule.
Congrats to our own Dan Walsdorf, co-owner of ACG. Dan was recently re-elected president of the board of the Wisconsin Geothermal Association. He also was re-elected to a three-year term as a director.
The WGA is dedicated to the promotion and growth of Wisconsin’s geothermal heating and cooling industry, encouraging consumer and contractor education, and fostering responsible business practices by all its members.
The election took place at the WGA’s annual meeting and educational conference in Stevens Point. The conference featured two keynote speakers: Steve Smith, Chairman of the Geothermal Exchange Organization, and Dave Ross, Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Safety & Professional Services. Twelve breakout sessions were offered and more than a dozen exhibitors promoted their products and services.
The WGA’s annual meeting and educational conference return to Stevens Point Feb. 22-23, 2017.
