Geothermal Technology

If you’re looking for an energy-efficient way to regulate the temperature in your home or office, we offer you geothermal technology solutions. With this option, you can maximize energy and save up to 70% on monthly utility bills.

How It Works

Geothermal or ground source technology is a method where the Earth’s temperature, water, and refrigerants are used to provide hot or cool air into your home. Heat is absorbed from the ground and transferred to any residential space.

It’s considered one of the sustainable options available because it doesn’t require venting and has the lowest emissions. Aside from that, geothermal technologies can significantly reduce operating costs. With these systems in place, you’re sure to save more resources and money in the long run.

Vertical Ground Loop System

  • It offers an effective and consistent solution to providing hot and cool air into your home.
  • Compared to a horizontal ground loop system, installing a vertical ground loop is less disruptive to lawns and landscapes.

Horizontal Ground Loop System

  • This system is less expensive compared to the vertical ground loop system.
  • Installation can be disruptive to lawn and landscapes.
  • The system may be less consistent in extreme weather conditions.

Common Concerns

Will installation ruin my yard?
Vertical loop systems require one well per ton, and the size of the area they will occupy depend on the tonnage. There are chances that your lot will be disrupted and might require landscaping services to restore its original state. 

On the other hand, installing a horizontal loop system may cause huge disruption to your yard. This may require extensive landscaping to repair your lawn. 

Can I use geothermal in an existing home?
Yes, you can. However, you can only experience the maximum benefits of geothermal systems when it’s paired with the proper ductwork size for your chosen ground source system. It might be worth considering replacing your current conduits.

If changing your current ductwork is not a workable option for you, the systems’ full capacity won’t be reached. While it can still have an added value in energy savings, but the results may not be as quick. 

What kind of rebates are available?
Overall costs can be reduced through federal government and local electric cooperative rebates. However, the payback depends on the system you chose to install in your home. Return of investment varies per situation, but it’s usually within the life of the system.

Do geothermal units maintain the same level of comfort as a gas furnace?
Yes. Geothermal systems provide the same level of heat and comfort that a gas furnace can give.
