Geothermal Exchange is an Affordable, Energy Efficient and Renewable Energy Source. Skillings and Sons can install a geothermal system for year-round, energy-saving comfort.

  • Residents of Massachusetts can now rejoice at the availability of geothermal tax credits designed to save them money by investing in geothermal technologies for their homes. While the initial cost of drilling a geothermal well and installing a heat pump can seem hard to swallow, the truth is that you can expect to see up to 30% of your money come back in the form of federal and state-level tax credits, and the remainder of your money will be returned as you can expect to cut your power bill drastically each and every month. 


  • Because they’re underground, geothermal heat pumps aren’t as noticeable as say, wind turbines and solar panels, and they just don’t get the attention other alternative energy processes get. Skillings & Sons, however, has been giving geothermal heat pump technology quite a bit of attention over the years and can show by their satisfied customers that the process is cost-effective, energy efficient and ecologically friendly.


  • One of the benefits of installing a geothermal heat pump system in a new or existing home is that most of the equipment and installation costs are eligible for a federal tax credit. The Residential Energy-Efficient Property Credit, sometimes referred to as the § 25D credit, was enacted in 2009 to lessen the costs of installation of energy efficient units.


  • With the climbing cost of home heating fuels, people across the Northeast have been looking for ways to make their homes more efficient during the winter. In addition, many are looking for cleaner alternatives to burning fossil fuels and have begun exploring green energy technologies for powering and heating their homes.

     

    In this post, we take a look at the different kind of heating systems and how to decide which one is right for you.


Geothermal Exchange is an Affordable, Energy Efficient and Renewable Energy Source. Skillings and Sons can install a geothermal system for year-round, energy-saving comfort. A geothermal exchange system uses the earth’s natural, relatively constant thermal temperature to heat, cool and provide hot water for a home or business.
