What is the Geothermal System?

A geothermal HVAC system involves an extremely energy-efficient type of heat pump (also known as a ground-source heat pump) that generates heat using solar energy stored in the ground. This system has  the edge over more conventional heating and cooling methods because it:

How Does Geothermal Heating & Cooling Work?

A geothermal cooling and heating system transfers the ambient, existing heat stored in the earth to heat your home. In other words, during geothermal system installation, the contractors dig strategically placed trenches across your property. They’ll then install pipes below where the ground typically freezes. The liquid traveling through this pipe system absorbs the natural heat stored in the earth.

This liquid is then sent back through the geothermal system’s heat pump mechanism, where it’s transferred inside your home, making it warm and comfortable. In reverse, the same process is completed to cool your home in the summer.

Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely! The earth is a consistent, reliable source of energy. Day in and day out, it produces more than enough energy to keep your home comfortable. Our climate is well-suited for geothermal heat pumps, and these systems provide many decades of clean, affordable energy.

Geothermal systems will pay for themselves over time. How long it takes depends on a wide range of factors. Some systems may pay for themselves in four years, while others may pay for themselves in 15 years. No matter how long it takes, it’s rare that a system won’t pay for itself long before it needs to be replaced.

There are many differences between mini-splits and geothermal systems. Mini-splits cover a smaller area and require a backup. They also don’t work as well when the temperature gets below freezing.
Conversely, geothermal systems can heat/cool the entire home and have no minimum temperature. Both will deliver significant energy savings; ductless mini-splits can save you 20–40%, whereas geothermal systems can save you up to 75%.
Yes, they do. However, the good news is that for every one unit of energy they require to operate, they generate roughly four units of heat energy. That makes them among the most efficient home heating and cooling solutions globally.
It typically takes one or two days to install a ground source heat pump. This time frame depends on the conditions at the site, construction schedules, and other factors. Before installation, our team will give you a reliable installation schedule for your property.
