We installed new ductwork for this customer to ensure their new system will heat their home evenly and efficiently!
These Freeville, NY customers had an old oil boiler in their 1880’s farmhouse that they were interested in getting rid of. With ideas of upgrading to a more energy-efficient and cost-effective system, they attended a HeatSmart Tompkins meeting and decided to have Halco out to provide an estimate on a new heating system. We installed a 6-ton geo system with 3 heat pumps: one for the first floor, one for the second, and one for the hot water. We also installed all new ductwork and encapsulated the stone basement and walk-up attic. The homeowners used to go through about 750 gallons of fuel oil at $3 a gallon at an annual cost of $2,250. The geothermal cost to operate is about $775 a year!
