Geothermal Systems & Loops
Geothermal systems have been used for many years to heat and cool homes and buildings. They are the most
Today, we are able to improve efficiency even more as a result of new technology. New advances in the industry also allow Geothermal to be more versatile and can be designed to fit in any space, with multiple configuration options.
Some of those configurations include:
- Vertical loops for smaller residential and commercial land areas
- Horizontal loops for residential and larger areas
- Well and Pond applications when available
There are many benefits of moving to geothermal, here are just a few:
- Cut energy costs by 75%
- Access the energy that is already stored on your property
- Reduce your carbon footprint
- Become less reliant on oil, propane
- Become less affected by rising utility prices
- Domestic Hot Water Heating
- In-Floor Heating
- No outdoor equipment
- Low maintenance
- Long life
How does a Geothermal System work?
A geothermal system uses the energy of the sun, stored in the earth, to keep you in comfort all year round. Even in the winter, when a blanket of snow covers the ground, the earth's temperature remains approximately 10°C (50°F) at only six feet below the surface. This means that you have a steady supply of heat to keep you in comfort, even in the depths of the coldest winter.
A series of pipes buried in the ground. An ethanol solution is circulated through the pipes to make them highly efficient conductors of heat. In the winter, the ethanol in the pipes absorbs the heat from the ground and, now warmed up, the fluid is pumped back through the geothermal unit in the house. In the summer, the heat transfer process takes place in reverse. The fluid in the pipes leaves the house in a warm state, but after circulating

The Distribution System
Heating In Winter
After the pipes have done the heat transfer, and the geothermal unit has done its work maximizing the heat value of the circulated fluid, the heat is then drawn off the heat exchanger in the unit and circulated throughout the house using the existing distribution system.
Cooling In Summer
In the summer, the process is reversed. The hot air in the house is essentially absorbed by the geothermal unit which now circulates much cooler pipe fluid. The heat is transferred first to the pipes then to the ground outside before returning, cooled, to the house.
The geothermal unit is connected to the home's existing heating/cooling distribution system, whether
Cleaning the electrostatic filter once a month is all that's needed to keep the system in good running order.
Pumps quietly circulate fluid through the heat exchanger. No combustion or forced-flame noise is heard. An outdoor air conditioning unit, often noisy, is not required.
Geothermal systems eliminate indoor temperature swings and humidity changes that often occur with traditional systems. In addition, the occasional
Long System Life
Geothermal units have a life expectancy of at least 20 years.
Geothermal systems use a renewable resource, the earth, which is efficient and non-polluting. Replacing a fossil fuel system with geothermal immediately
