Open House at Clausen Residence - Tully

Rural geothermal home in Tully NY
Lucky Penny Acres
7375 Song Lake Road, Tully NY 13159

The Clausen home in Tully was built in 1923 and had an addition added in 1980.  Before going geothermal, they heated with expensive fuel oil.  They went geothermal with vertical wells in 2016, using in-floor and baseboard radiant heat in a water-to-water system. Combined with their solar panels, they pay next to nothing each year for electric or heat!

ALLERGY NOTE: This is a house with dogs.
