I have been actively looking for an HVAC company to fill my needs in the Cincinnati area, and have gotten several quotes so far. To be honest, I'm shocked at the 2 quotes I've gotten so far. My house is fairly spread out, having 2 additions added to it over the years, but is it just me or does there seem to be a LOT of price gouging going on with geothermal. It's almost as if it's the new buzzword, and it's got some kind of luxury tax added right on top. Add to that the stimulus package, and it's like a license to print money or something. 30% tax credit must mean add 30% to the price!! After looking for several months, I do think Geothermal is the way to go in the future. Energy prices are going to continue to rise, and at the payback time on a geothermal system is going to continue to get shorter and shorter. Is there anyone on here from the Cincinnati area that can recommend a good installer that won't try to burgle me in the process?
