Geothermal Heat Pump

Geothermal Loop System – Removes heat in the Summer, Adds heat in the Winter. Learn More

“The most energy-efficient, environmentally clean, and cost-effective space-conditioning system” (according to U.S. EPA)

A few feet below the earth’s surface the ground remains at a relatively constant temperature. Like a cave, the ground temperature is warmer than the air above it during the winter and cooler than the air in the summer. The Geothermal Heat Pump (GHP) takes advantage of this by exchanging heat with the earth through a geothermal loop system. According to the EPA, geothermal heat pumps can reduce energy consumption up to 44% compared to air-source heat pumps and up to 72% compared to electric resistance heating with standard air-conditioning equipment.

Why Geothermal?

  • Economical – provides operating cost savings of 30-60 percent
  • Efficiency – as much as four times as efficient as conventional systems
  • Dependable – contains few moving parts and no exposed outdoor equipment, requiring little maintenance
  • Safe – no open flames, no fumes, no soot
  • Flexible – one single unit handles heating, cooling, and water heating
