For Geothermal Heat Pump Owners...
We can only provide service for our existing customers; whose systems we installed. However, if you are interested in a Ground source or Geothermal system replacement or a new design & installation, please contact our Sales Department.
Ground source and Geothermal Heat Pumps tap the stored energy of the earth. These systems use the earth's relatively constant temperature to provide heating, cooling, and hot water for homes and commercial buildings.
Because it's much easier to move heat to the cooler earth than into the sweltering summer air, geothermal heat pumps do not have to work as hard to cool your home. This efficiency has a bottom line - Substantial savings reflected in your monthly utility bill! And the same applies for the Heating Season: It's much easier to absorb heat from the warmer earth than from the frigid outdoor air.
Ground source heat pumps can be categorized as having closed or open loops, and those loops can be installed in three ways: horizontally, vertically, or in a pond/lake. The type chosen depends on the available land areas and the soil and rock type at the installation site. These factors will help determine the most economical choice for installation of the ground loop.
For closed loop systems, water or antifreeze solution is circulated through plastic pipes buried beneath the earth's surface. During the winter, the fluid collects heat from the earth and carries it through the system and into the building. During the summer, the system reverses itself to cool the building by pulling heat from the building, carrying it through the system and placing it in the ground.
Open loop (Well water) systems operate on the same principle as closed loop systems and can be installed where an adequate supply of suitable water is available and open discharge is feasible. Also known as "Pump & Dump". Benefits similar to the closed loop system are obtained.
Ground Source/Geothermal Heat Pumps:
- Efficiency ratings up to five times higher than those of ordinary heating and cooling systems
- Savings on utility bills up to 70 percent
- Can provide almost free domestic hot water
- GREEN! Reduced carbon footprint since the system burns no fossil fuels.
- More even distribution of heating and cooling for improved comfort
- Quiet operation with no noisy outdoor units to disturb the environment or neighbors
- Safe operation that requires no open flame or fuel storage tanks
- Less maintenance
- Increased system longevity (an average life span of 24 years vs. 15 for conventional air conditioners and 20 years for fossil fuel furnaces)
Note: Homeowners who install geothermal heating and cooling systems may be eligible for state and federal tax incentives, along with utility rebates. Ask one of our Comort Specialists for more information.
