Geothermal is very expensive.

Perhaps you can find an experienced BPI-certified energy auditor with an HVAC background who can recommend upgrades to your home's envelope and mechanical systems to provide cost-effective energy efficiency solutions with your current systems.

Make sure to look into all the available rebates, federal and local utility.
