Geothermal Heating & Cooling

What is Geothermal Heating & Cooling?

The term “geothermal” refers to the constant temperatures beneath the earth’s surface, rather than the fluctuating temperatures above. Geothermal heating and cooling systems utilize these steady temperatures through a system of pipes that travel underground, absorbing and storing the those temperatures while transferring them into your home.


What are the Benefits of Geothermal Heating & Cooling?

Where other heating and cooling units utilize energy to manufacture hot or cold air and water, geothermal systems only use energy to operate the unit’s pump, compressor and fan. Unlike other heating and cooling systems, geothermal systems do not burn fossil fuels to create heat—therefore, helping to reduce your carbon footprint!

Geothermal systems are also made to last! While the equipment that resides in your house may need to be replaced after several decades, the piped loop that runs through the ground will last for generations—making the cost of any repairs minimal as opposed to the initial investment of the system.

Through 2016, the federal government is offering a 30% tax credit for the overall cost of your geothermal system—drastically reducing the overall cost of the system. With the federal tax credit, the geothermal system also moves into a competitive price bracket when compared to other heating and cooling systems.
