Summers in Texas can be brutal — especially for seniors who are at greater risk of heat strokes and other effects of heat or sun exposure. Between the searing temperatures and oppressive humidity, stepping outside can be unbearable. However, indoor heat can be just as dangerous, which is why seniors need a cool comfortable home in which to relax. A geothermal HVAC system can provide Sugar Land, Texas, seniors with increased efficiency and greater comfort levels.
Lower Your Energy Usage
Geothermal energy costs much less to produce, which makes it an affordable choice for Texas seniors. You might see high energy costs throughout the summer with a traditional HVAC system. Geothermal systems allow you to reduce energy consumption, leaving more breathing room in the budget. You will also reduce your impact on the environment. You might even get the chance to take advantage of “green” rebates and tax incentives.
Reduce Heating and Cooling Cost Fluctuations
Geothermal energy isn’t just less expensive. This type of HVAC system also offers more consistency in terms of energy consumption. Since seniors often live on fixed incomes, reducing the variables associated with utility prices can make budgeting easier. These systems typically cost more to purchase and install, but you can save up for a fixed cost more easily than deal with unexpectedly high bills.
Improve Home Comfort
A geothermal HVAC system can make your home more comfortable in two distinct ways. First, it provides more consistent heating and cooling. Seniors are often sensitive to temperature extremes. The consistent air conditioning performance of the geothermal system will
provide effective cooling throughout the home. Geothermal systems don’t produce those vast fluctuations in temperature.
Second, this type of HVAC system helps to dehumidify the air. In Texas, the high humidity levels can cause respiratory problems and other types of discomfort. Removing some of the moisture from the air will help you to enjoy your home and avoid the negative consequences of high humidity such as mold and mildew growth.
