Geothermal Heating & Air Conditioning

Don't know where to start?
Geothermal heating and cooling systems are the most energy efficient HVAC systems available. Unlike conventional air conditioning, the efficiency of geothermal isn't affected by extreme air temperatures due to it's use of more moderate year-round ground temperatures. Our geothermal heat pumps have energy efficiency ratings as high as 35 EER, a level of efficiency virtually no conventional system can match.

What Is a Geothermal Heat Pump?

Geothermal energy involves harnessing heat that is produced below the earth's surface and using it to heat your home. While geothermal energy is often referred to as just heat distribution, you'll need geothermal heat pumps to effectively move air, whether you need to have your home heated or cooled off.

Most geothermal heat pump systems, also referred to as ground source heat pumps, use underground pipes to capture the heat energy the earth stores from the sun. Homeowners have the option of choosing open or closed-loop designs, although in the United States the majority of homes utilize a closed-loop system:

  • Open-Loop Setups: In an open-loop system, the heat pump uses groundwater that acts as a refrigerant to transfer energy and heat from the ground. Open-loop systems can also be designed to use water from a tank, pond, lake or other water source. Overall, an open-loop heat pump is an excellent and highly efficient system.
  • Closed-Loop Designs: Closed-loop designs use a mixture of antifreeze and water that cycles through the underground pipes. Closed-loop heat pumps are typically available in horizontal, vertical or slinky – a variation of the horizontal layout.

The design of your geothermal heat pump system will vary based on your climate, soil conditions, land availability, local installation costs, and accessibility to ground or surface water.

What You Should Know About Geothermal Heat Pumps – The Pros of Geothermal Energy

Homeowners have a huge variety of choices for heating and cooling their homes. While you can opt for traditional heating and cooling setups, one of the best sources of whole-home comfort is directly below your feet. While geothermal heat pumps can be expensive to purchase and install, there are several unbeatable benefits to adopting geothermal heating and air conditioning for your home. The main perks of installing a geothermal heat pump are:

  • They can be installed in any climate.
  • They last longer than traditional heating and air conditioning systems.
  • They have a low environmental impact, reducing electricity demands and minimizing carbon footprints.
  • They are incredibly energy efficient with low energy consumption rates.

Choosing and Installing a Geothermal Heat Pump

Before you purchase a geothermal heat pump for your home, it’s best to research heat pumps and installations in your area. Find a contractor or HVAC professional with extensive experience installing and maintaining geothermal heat pumps. Geothermal heat pumps can be installed just about anywhere in the United States, but several characteristics will determine what type of system is appropriate for your home:

  • Geology: The composition of the soil and rock throughout your property will determine which type of ground loop system is appropriate for your new geothermal heat pump system. Soil with high heat-transferring properties will require fewer underground pipes than soils with low heat transference.
  • Hydrology: The availability of ground and surface water, as well as that water supply's depth, quantity, and volume, will decide what type of ground loop to use.
  • Land Availability: For new builds, it’s fairly simple to install a new geothermal heat pump, but for established homes with a determined land layout, landscaping and other items, the geothermal heat pump installation is more complicated to avoid disruption.
