Geothermal Heating & Cooling Systems
Our special approach to every project ensures that we deliver consistent results.
Eco-Friendly Heating & Cooling
Did you know that this eco-friendly form of heating and cooling can actually have air quality benefits for your home? The average person spends between 75% and 90% of our total time indoors. With that in mind, it’s important to evaluate and optimize the quality of the air inside of your home. In fact, indoor air pollutants can number as many as 100 times that of the outdoors.Due to indoor air pollutants, many people report suffering respiratory problems and illnesses associated with poor air conditions. Our geothermal systems utilize the RGF Guardian Oxidation system, helping to reduce microorganisms in your air by over 99%. The benefits of this eco-friendly air purification system include:
- UV Treatment & Filtration
- Removes 85% of Gasses & Odors
- Approved by the EPA
- 99% Reduction of HINI virus
- 98% Reduction of MRSA virus
- 99% Reduction of Norwalk virus
- 97% Reduction of Mold Spores
- Eliminates air pollutants, chemical odors, smoke and more
- Energy savings of up to 70%
- Protection from rising energy costs
- High return-on-investment
- Long system life
- Reduced maintenance costs
- State & Local tax credits – consult a professional
Types of Geothermal SystemsGeothermal heating and air conditioning systems consist of two parts. The first is a series of loops or coils that are buried underneath the ground at your home. These coils are filled with liquid that helps carry out the heat transfer process that heats and cools your home. However, because all homes are different, the setup of these systems can change. Below are the types of systems that our team installs.
Closed Loop Geothermal SystemsA closed loop system is the most common type of geothermal system that we install. The closed loops are filled with liquid and buried underground. This liquid absorbs and stores heat, either from the outdoors or inside the home, depending on the setting.
- Horizontal Loop Systems – Horizontal loop systems are good for homes that have a lot of space in the yard for the installation.
- Vertical Loop Systems – These are better for smaller homes that have less space. We can install a geothermal system with just a 10 x 10 plot of land.
How does geothermal move warm and cold air throughout my home?
There are two ways in which this can be done with geothermal systems. The first way, forced air, is similar to a central heating system. – it utilizes ductwork and a blower that pulls the air in once it’s heated or cooled. This is the most common method for homes that have existing systems already. The other method is through radiant floor systems. These systems are a series of pipes under the floor where water flows through to regulate the temperature evenly.
I have a traditional heating and cooling systems. Can I retrofit my home?
How long will my geothermal system last?
To answer this question, you must understand the components of your system. The loops, which are buried underground and complete the heat transfer process, should last for your lifetime. This part of the system should not have to be repaired or serviced unless affected by natural disaster. The second part of this system is the heat pump unit that’s installed inside the home. That part of the system will need to be regularly serviced, repaired and, at some point, replaced.
