Geothermal Heat Pumps

Geothermal Heat Pumps

  • Geothermal (ground source) heat pumps are electrically powered, self-contained systems that take advantage of the earth’s relatively constant ground temperature to provide heating, cooling and hot water for homes and commercial buildings
  • The heat pump unit is housed entirely within the home or commercial building and connected to the outside buried ground loop
  • Geothermal heat pumps work with the environment to provide clean, efficient and energy-saving heating and cooling year round through a closed loop or open loop system
  • Loops can be installed three ways: horizontally, vertically or in a pond or lake
  • The type chosen will depend on the available land area and the soil and rock type

  • Savings – Can cut heating and cooling costs by 50 percent and
  • provide hot water free or at substantial savings
  • Durability – Lasts longer than a conventional system due to protection from harsh outdoor weather
  • Low Maintenance – The ground loop has an expected life of over 50 years and requires no maintenance
  • Low Noise – Operates quietly due to lack of exposed, noisy outside units
  • Conservation – Works with the environment by using the earthís moderate ground temperature
  • Prices subject to change without notice.
