Geothermal System Services in Greenville, SC

Is being eco-friendly important to you? How about saving money on your utility bills? A geothermal system might be the answer to your prayers.

Unlike run-of-the-mill models, geothermal systems use an incredibly low amount of energy to operate and can keep you warm.

What Are Geothermal Systems & How Do They Work?

The ground below our feet stays at a relatively constant temperature, unlike air temperature, which is always changing. 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 warmer months.

Unlike conventional heating options, a geothermal system uses ambient, existing energy to heat your interior through a heat transfer process.

Benefits of Geothermal Systems

Geothermal systems have an edge on more conventional heating and cooling methods because they: 

  • Use little to no electricity to operate, which reduces your carbon footprint and your costs
  • Require relatively fewer maintenance visits and repairs than other methods
  • Use a heating process that’s easily reversible into a cooling process, cutting down on your required HVAC equipment

Frequently Asked Questions About Geothermal Systems in Greer & Greenville, SC

Are geothermal systems worth the investment?

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.

Do geothermal systems pay for themselves?

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. But, no matter how long it takes, it’s rare that a system won’t pay for itself long before it needs to be replaced.

Are ductless mini-splits better and more efficient than geothermal systems?

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%.

Do geothermal heat pumps require electricity?

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.

How long does it take to install a ground source heat pump?

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.
