How It Works?
The Power of Geothermal Heating and Cooling
With a geothermal heating and cooling system your lawn becomes a permanent power plant for your home. You’ll enjoy the benefits of the most comfortable, reliable, energy and cost efficient heating, cooling, and water heating system available on the market today.
How Does it Work?
The earth absorbs almost 50% of all solar energy remaining a nearly constant underground temperature of 50°F to 70°F depending on geographic location. Working with an underground loop system, geothermal systems utilize this constant temperature to exchange energy between your home and the earth as needed for heating and cooling. In winter, water circulating inside a sealed underground loop system absorbs heat from the earth and carries it to the geothermal unit. It is compressed to a higher temperature and sent as warm air to the indoor system for circulation throughout your home. In the summer, the system reverses and expels heat from your home into the cooler earth via the loop system. This heat exchange process is not only natural, but is a highly efficient way to create a comfortable climate in your home.
There are several loop configurations available. They can either be vertical, horizontal, or submerged in a nearby pond or lake. In some cases, a water
well can be used instead. The best application will depend on the characteristics of your property.

With a geothermal system, a typical home can save in the range of $600 to $1,200 of energy costs annually. That’s a savings of up to 60% over a conventional system,
providing a day one positive cash flow. Endorsed by both the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy, geothermal technology is the
most efficient and environmentally safe heating and cooling option available.
