A Geothermal system uses heat from the biggest solar collector in the world, the earth itself. By running piping under the ground, they absorb heat from the earth and send it into the home. These systems tie into existing ductwork like a traditional heat pump, but last longer as they have no outside exposure.
In the winter, a geothermal system extracts heat from the earth. The process is highly efficient, self-contained and produces no carbon emissions. The system consists of a geothermal unit inside your home which would be roughly the size of your existing furnace and a series of pipes buried underground on your property.
In the summer the process is reversed - heat is extracted from the house and deposited in the ground, with even greater efficiency, using the same equipment.
Below ground is a secure, renewable source of energy. Why not reap the rewards of an asset you already own?
HOW YOU SAVE
The EPA states, “Geothermal systems have the lowest life-cycle cost of all heating and cooling systems available”.
Significant monthly returns are realized upon installation of a geothermal system, particularly for larger homes and homes that heat with oil, propane, and natural gas.
The chart on the right shows the average reallocation of heating and cooling loads after conversion to a geothermal system.
Geothermal systems provide clients with up to 75% savings over traditional heating means, and add up to 40% savings on hot water costs.
Don’t take our word for it.... This is what our customers say!
“It’s been a great winter; I’ve been burning wood for 30 years, what a break it is to finally not have to haul. It’s so economical! I’m spending less on power, than what I would have on wood. It even draws enough heat at -24C, without turning on the auxiliary heat. The Previous winter, we were away 3 weeks and our power bill was $475.00, this year we were away for 6 weeks our bill was $180.00... for 6 weeks! You shouldn’t be able to build a house today without a heat pump or a geothermal system.”
