Geothermal Heating And Cooling

Tax Credits Are Available for Qualifying Geothermal HVAC Systems

Geothermal technology is currently the most efficient way to heat or cool your home. A geothermal system uses the Earth’s relatively constant internal temperature to extract heat or add heat to your house. Not only are these systems environmentally friendly, but they can also save the owner thousands on utility and equipment expenses over the lifetime of the system.

  • Cost Effective

  • Environmentally Friendly

  • Energy Efficient

  • Extremely Safe

How Does Geothermal Work?

The Earth acts as a massive heat sink trapping in and storing the sun’s energy. Just a few feet below the surface, the Earth’s internal temperature stays at 55-70 degrees year-round. This constant internal temperature is exactly what geothermal heating and cooling aim to tap into. When cooling your house, heat is extracted and released into the Earth. When looking to warm your house, heat is extracted from the Earth and distributed around your home. This cycle is the basis for all geothermal applications.

 

Benefits of Geothermal HVAC Systems

Energy Efficient

Geothermal is considered the most energy-efficient way to heat or cool a house. For every unit of electricity, five units of energy are produced thanks to the “free energy” pulled from the Earth. Even the more efficient air conditioning unit or furnace only produces less than one unit of energy for each unit of electricity. Geothermal is up to 530% efficient compared to the top gas furnace at only 98% efficiency.

Cost-Effective

With the drastic increase in energy efficiency, geothermal owners save monthly on utility expenses which can add up to more in savings than the cost of the system. The loop system is rated for 100 years, and the in-home unit is good for an average of 25 years. This is much longer than a standard furnace and air conditioner lifespan, meaning less equipment replacement costs.

Multi-Use

Unlike a traditional house with an exterior air conditioning unit, interior air handler or furnace, and a water heater, a geothermal home has one efficient unit to heat and cool. The system can also be set up to supplement water heating, heat driveways, heat swimming pools, and more!

Environmentally Friendly

The United States Environmental Protection Agency recognizes geothermal as the most environmentally friendly, cost-effective, and energy efficient way of heating and cooling. Geothermal can also heat without burning fossil fuels which means no pollution or gasses are released into the atmosphere.

Safe

Without the need for burning has, geothermal uses no flames, which means no fumes. This eliminates the possibility of carbon monoxide poisoning from a furnace malfunction or exhaust blockage. Our geothermal units also have high-efficiency filters built-in, which keep your family breathing healthier.

Comfort

Geothermal units use the newest technology to keep air moving around your house, eliminating hot and cold spots. Specific area zoning is also available for even more control.

Loop Systems for Geothermal HVAC

The loop system is the foundation for the geothermal heat transfer process. A series of tubes are buried in the ground or a water source on the property. A liquid runs from the interior geothermal unit to these tubes to collect heat or remove heat from the house. The loop system can be configured in various formats to best fit your property’s needs.

Horizontal Loops Horizontal loops are used when enough land is available. The ground is excavated and refilled, with the tubing buried. An average home would require 1/4 to 3/4 of an acre for this method.

Vertical Loops Vertical loops are great for places with limited space. A drilling rig will dig roughly 3-5 holes 15 feet apart to meet a typical home’s needs.

Pond/Lake Loops If a pond or lake is available, a pond loop can be used instead of burying tubing. An average home will require a 1/2 acre 8-foot deep body of water.

Open Loops An open-loop may be used when there is an excess of quality well water. The well must have enough water for the home and the geothermal unit.
