What is Geothermal?

Geothermal energy is the heat from the earth. Geothermal heating capitalizes on the fact that temperatures in the Earth remain fairly constant when digging just a few feet below the surface. Did you know that roughly the first ten feet of ground, can maintain a temperature between 50°F and 60°F? Geothermal heat pumps can use this energy to heat and cool your home or business while using less energy than a typical HVAC system.


Geothermal HVAC systems use a series of equipment and piping to transfer the earth’s energy to and from your house. A loop of pipes is buried in the ground either vertically or horizontally. A fluid (usually water mixed with environmentally friendly antifreeze) is circulated through the pipes to absorb and dispel the heat from the ground. This heat is then extracted by the heat pump unit and delivered in or out of your living spaces using conventional ductwork air delivery systems.


Why Geothermal?

These systems are safe for the environment as well as your home. They produce the fewest emissions, use less electricity and reduce pollution. They also provide the most stable comfort level, with more efficient humidity control than other systems.
