Ideal’s Mustang Communities Save Their Owners Significant Heating and Cooling Costs
March 27, 2018
Picking the right new home is about getting the most for your family. In addition to the perfect location, like Ideal’s Somer’s Pointe and Skyline Trails neighborhoods in Mustang, your new home needs to be a smart decision. Every new home in Somers Pointe and Skyline Trails comes with a geothermal heat pump system. Geothermal provides the lowest operating costs of any heating and cooling system in the world. The EPA says geothermal systems are “the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean and cost-effective space conditioning systems available today.” Geothermal technology uses a high-efficiency heat pump and sealed underground piping loops filled with water to exchange heat between your home and the earth. Over 70 percent of the total energy used in a home is for heating and cooling. With a geothermal system, most of this energy comes free, directly from the earth. Because your geothermal system doesn’t have to work as hard to heat and cool your home, you save on energy costs. The earth is your source for efficient heating and cooling. In winter, water circulating in the loop piping absorbs heat from the earth and carries it to the heat pump, where it is concentrated and sent as warm, comfortable air throughout your home. In the summer, the heat pump absorbs heat from your home and transfers it to the water in the loop piping where it is absorbed by the earth. The heat pump dehumidifies the cooled air and pumps comfortable air throughout your home. Geothermal has been the premium choice for energy savings for a long time. New homebuyers in Somers Pointe and Skyline Trails benefit from a special program to convert the cost of installing and maintaining the underground geothermal loops to a low monthly thermal energy fee. Homeowners get geothermal comfort and savings without significant up-front costs or maintenance concerns. New Ideal homebuyers learn more about geothermal systems and have the opportunity to talk to an energy consultant about how the combination of energy savings, potential tax credits and other incentives can help your family have the world’s best heating and cooling system for less. Tax Credits. The minute you close on your home, you’re eligible for a 30% federal tax credit on the total cost of your geothermal system. That’s an immediate payback to you.
