Sila Geothermal: Eco-friendly. Budget Friendlier.

Do you think about your “carbon footprint”? Have you thought about taking your home “green”? Would you like to be “earth-friendly” AND save on energy costs at the same time?  A geothermal heat pump gives you economical, ecologically-friendly heating in the winter AND cooling in the summer!

Lots of people think geothermal systems are an innovative, futuristic technology.  Innovative, yes.  But the truth is, geothermal systems have been around for decades.  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency calls geothermal heat pumps “the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean and cost-effective space conditioning systems today” — and it could be right for you.

In our experience, geothermal systems are simply economical and empowering.  With a geothermal system you invest upfront in a system that promises significant savings and simultaneously removes your home from natural gas and home fuel price escalation. What’s more, with a geothermal installation, you can take advantage of the 30% federal tax credit available through 2016!* Imagine how that could help pay for your new system – and the savings in your energy costs will continue!

At Sila, we know geothermal systems, backward and forward.  We know how to assess your home site to determine geothermal will work properly.  We know how to install and maintain the system.  And we can help calculate tax benefits and energy savings so you can know if a system is right for you.

What is a geothermal heat pump?

Very simply, a geothermal (or “ground-source”) heat pump uses the natural heat from the earth and/or the earth’s groundwater to provide heating, cooling and hot water for homes and business.
Geothermal heat pumps offer the highest cooling and heating efficiencies of any system available and are an eco-friendly, cost-efficient alternative to traditional air-source heat pumps or fossil fuel heating systems.

In contrast to oil, gas or propane heating systems, Sila’s geothermal heating and cooling systems emit NO combustion by-product gasses and have the lowest CO2 emissions technology, allowing you to take another step towards lowering your carbon footprint.

You can have a system that’s quiet, efficient and more ecologically sound than any other system available today. Find out if geothermal is right for your home – call us today.
