What is your PIE cost? Do you want your PIE, and eat it too?
When contemplating the purchase of a new vehicle most of us will ask "what is the price"? What we are really asking is what “will the monthly payment actually be”! And then, right next to that question, we will calculate and ask what the fuel consumption will be? Why is that important? Because the payment, and the gas, come out of the SAME PAYCHECK!
Likewise, when you are buying a home, or qualifying for home financing, the monthly payment is most often more important than the contract price. Why is it that so few customers ask, what the energy costs will be for this home, on a monthly, or annual basis? The answer -- Because the contractor may not know!
I don’t know about you, but if every car on the dealership lot has a big KM/Liter sticker on the passenger window, why is there no energy cost sticker on the home window? Answer: because you didn’t ask the question!
Home energy systems come with a price. The cost of installing geothermal, natural gas, electric or any of the other energy alternatives, as well as the ongoing operational costs can quickly add up---and keep adding up over the years. It should be only natural for all potential home owners to ask that simple question--BEFORE you make a long lasting decision. The cost of installing geothermal as well as the ongoing geothermal energy cost is something that should be contemplated for every new building design, home build, or major renovation prior to assuming that the status quo will do.
PIE (Principal, Interest & Energy cost) of your new home CAN be determined in advance in the same way mileage and total cost of ownership can be determined for a new car. kc&b build can and will provide you with this information and empower you to make the right decisions during a new home design consideration. Why take a chance on that?Read More

Adjust your thinking and save.
What is the most common mistake in new construction? Not accurately calculating the total cost of ownership of your new home.
One area that is often overlooked is the Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system. The HVAC system will easily have the biggest impact on your monthly budget and daily comfort, yet for many is an afterthought.
Geothermal systems offer astounding savings that will allow you to re-invest the money you save back into your home. Imagine being able to afford to put extra money onto your mortgage payment each and every month! That is a given with a Geothermal system, thanks to lower operating costs on heating and cooling. Why not start with the most efficient and lowest operating cost solution available on the market today?
While the upfront cost for a geothermal system is higher than everyday gas or electric heating and cooling options, no other system provides the monthly savings and overall cost of ownership that geothermal offers.Read More
Under-utilizing the benefits.
The 2nd most common mistake in new home construction. Under-utilizing the benefits realized.
Saving is only saving if that is what you actually do with it!
Say you save $75.00 monthly on energy costs using your new Geothermal heat pump system. While the $75.00 figure is realistic in some cases, in actual fact, this can vary considerably and generate more substantial monthly savings. What will you be doing with this "savings"? Purchasing some new tools, shoes or another night out? Considering the cost of geothermal installation, wouldn't it be just prudent to capture all related energy usage savings and make it work overtime for you?
To maximize the full geothermal energy advantages let's harvest the true value by using these saving strategically. If placed back against your initial mortgage, monthly energy savings of a properly sized and designed Geothermal system can take four or five years off of a 25 year mortgage -and this is in addition to the amazing heating and cooling comfort your new system will be providing. At all times, but specifically in an era of uncertain energy costs, this is an option with a very "real world" consequence.
