Put the odds ever in your favor!

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.

Upgrade your geothermal before tax credits expire

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.
