Patti and Marvin Langley had a new house built for them in the Parkside Development within the Village of Skaneateles. They considered electric, natural gas and geothermal for their heating source and chose geothermal because it is a clean energy source, has a smaller carbon footprint than other energy sources and the utilization costs are low.
Address: 101 Sinclair Street, Skaneateles
House area: 2700 square feet
Property: 7/10 of an acre
House built: 2011
Alternative Energy Source: Geothermal Heating and Cooling
The Builder selected the installer.
The cost of the geothermal installation was included in the cost of the house.
Tax Incentives: 30% tax credit on their Federal Income Tax (expires in 2016)
The Langley’s monthly electric bill which includes heat, air conditioning, all appliances and lights is approximately $101/month.
The Langleys will be on site to answer your questions about geothermal from Noon until 3 PM on October 5.
