Geothermal Heat Pump systems conserve natural resources by providing climate control very efficiently-thus also lowering emissions. Geothermal Heat Pumps also minimize ozone layer destruction by using factory-sealed refrigeration systems, which will seldom or never have to be recharged.
Ground source heat pump systems will reduce your heating and cooling costs regardless of how well your building is insulated. However, insulating and weatherizing are key factors in gaining the maximum amount of savings from any type of heating and cooling system.
Yes. Called dual systems, they can easily be added to existing furnaces for those wishing to have a dual-fuel heating system. Dual-fuel systems use the Geothermal Heat Pump system as the main heating source, and a gas furnace or boiler as a supplement in extremely cold weather should additional heat be needed.
My yard contains many shade trees. Will this affect ground temperature and my ability to use it as an energy source?geomaster2019-03-06T08:27:56+00:00
Not at all. The system is installed deep enough that it utilizes constant ground temperature.
No. Research has shown that loops have no adverse effects on grass, trees, or shrubs. Most horizontal installations require trenches about six inches wide. Temporary bare areas can be restored with grass seed or sod. Vertical loops require little space and do not damage lawns significantly.
Yes, in most cases. Our engineers will be able to determine ductwork requirements and if any minor modifications are needed.
