Geothermal

With a high-efficiency geothermal system, you can reduce your energy bills up to 60 percent using the free, renewable energy stored just below your home. 

A geothermal system consists of a heat exchanger placed inside your home and ground loops made of high-density polyethylene pipes installed in the earth or submerged in a pond/lake. With a closed-loop system, an environmentally-friendly antifreeze solution circulates through thermally-fused pipes.

In the winter, the solution absorbs heat and moves it to a heat exchanger. The heat is compressed to a higher temperature and distributed using your home’s ductwork. In the summer, the process is reversed. Open-loop systems operate similarly and can be installed where there is an adequate supply of suitable water and location for water discharge. 

As an added benefit, any excess heat can be captured and used for your hot water needs. Enjoy free hot water in the summer and substantial savings in the winter!
