Why Consider Geothermal Energy

March 15, 2013

Geothermal systems are environmentally friendly. Simply put, geothermal systems are the most efficient way to heat and cool your home. Why? The technology behind geothermal energy is not new. In fact, it is something that has been around for a very long time. However, new technology has taken this and made it available for potentially every home. Geothermal heat pumps use the constant temperature of the earth below the frost line as the exchange medium instead of the air temperature outside. They not only provide you with hot and cold air, but can also provide free hot water. Geothermal technology is a great investment that will help save you money on your utilities each year. Another benefit is that this technology is very quiet, so you will not experience a loud air conditioner. In addition, because these systems are so efficient and environmentally friendly, you can receive a tax credit for the installation of a geothermal system. St. Louis Geothermal Installation At Scott-Lee Heating we offer GeoComfort products for installing geothermal systems. They are the only geothermal brand that offers a complete R410A product line. This means that the refrigerant is environmentally friendly and will not deplete the ozone. For...

Geothermal Power Up by 5% in 2012

March 7, 2013

Geothermal Power Currently there is a 30% tax credit for the installation of a geothermal system.  According to the Geothermal Energy Association, installed geothermal capacity grew by 5% in the United States in 2012. This growth builds on the already growing trend of geothermal usage over the past decade. However, in order for this trend to last, the government needs to continue its support of these programs by the continuation of tax credits and by its support of geothermal research and development. As of the first week in March 2013, geothermal industry leaders and government officials met in Washington, D.C. to discuss how they should move the geothermal industry forward. Currently there is a 30% tax credit for the installation of a geothermal system. This tax credit is available through the end of 2016. In addition to this, many states have extra incentives available for the installation of residential geothermal systems. St. Louis Geothermal Installation Scott-Lee Heating Company is dedicated to giving you quality customer service and reliable geothermal system maintenance and installation throughout the St. Louis Metro Area.

How Beneficial Is Geothermal Heating and Cooling?

February 22, 2013

A geothermal system will cut costs by as much as 70%. Geothermal systems have become one of the most popular heating and cooling systems in recent years. As oil and electricity prices have risen, they have gained a sizable place in the market, thanks in large part to their ability to cut heating costs. Another reason for their popularity is because of a 30% tax credit that will end in 2016. If these oil and electricity costs are treating you like a jilted friend, then find comfort in the arms of geothermal. These types of systems will have initial upfront costs, but pay off themselves in the long run, usually in two to ten years. A geothermal system will cut costs by as much as 70%, and the longer they operate, the better the savings and more money in the bank. When used in cooling mode, the electrical usage is reduced by 20% to 50% compared to traditional heating and cooling systems. Another good side to this form of green energy is its durability and low maintenance. The underground piping often has long-term warranties associated with it, and if installed properly is a worry off your shoulders. The few mechanical...

Customer Survey Review Scott-Lee Heating Company is proud to be a Premier Lennox Dealer in the St. Louis area. A recent customer satisfaction survey was completed by Dan R. of Wildwood, Missouri. Out of a possible 40 points, Dan gave us 40 points! He also posted this comment, “My installation went perfectly. I called Scott-Lee Heating after getting one bid from a contractor who could not install until the end of the week – three days away. Forecasted temps were for the low teens for several days. At 7:40 AM, Scott-Lee said they had the furnace in stock and could install that day. At 9:00 AM the furnace was delivered, and by 1:00 PM the furnace was installed, with the old furnace removed. My recently remodeled basement with a narrow ninety-degree turn stairway looked perfect. By 2:00 PM the house was warm again. Thank you Scott-Lee for excellent response, professional service, and for beating the first bid by $100.00.” We appreciate our customers and the feedback they leave for us.
