Mid-Coast Energy Systems Talks Geothermal
Get answers to your Questions. Mid-Coast Energy Systems is exhibiting at the 2016 Common Ground Fair – September 23, 24& 25. MCES staff will answer your heating & cooling questions about geothermal. Discussions will include energy efficiency, maintenance and cost of installation. They will also show how to properly size a geothermal system based on demand. Data supports the many benefits of choosing geothermal to heat & cool in Maine.
Rates for fossil Fuel will only get worse. Heating fuel has temporarily dropped in price, but monthly rates for use of oil and propane will likely remain volatile in the future. A geothermal system provides a renewable source of energy by using heat from the earth that is stored beneath the ground on the property. Geothermal systems yield impressive savings to the homeowner from the first day of use. Once the system is paid off, the only monthly utility bill remaining is for minor electricity to run the heat pump.
Initially, geothermal is more expensive than other heating & cooling systems to install. In the long term, statistics prove that savings far outweigh the cost of installation (when compared to other fuel sources over the same time period.) A 30% federal tax credit and $5,000 Efficiency Maine rebate are still available.
