Your own backyard has the potential to be your source of heating and cooling comfort. Now you can get safe, reliable, energy efficient heating and cooling from one piece of equipment. Geothermal energy represents the leading edge of heating and cooling technology. It moves heat energy to and from the earth to heat and cool your indoor environment. And compared to ordinary systems, geothermal technology can save you 30% to 60% on your monthly energy bills. Geothermal is the safest, cleanest, most reliable space conditioning system you can buy. Geothermal Air Conditioning can attain Seer ratings of over 50! Geothermal Air Conditioning and Heating systems use a loop to facilitate the heat exchange process. The loop runs from your house and into the ground in your back yard or into a pond if you live on property which has a pond or lake.

There are four basic types of geothermal loops

Horizontal Loops

These are often considered when adequate land surface is available. Pipes are placed in trenches that range in length from 100 to 400 feet. Click on the loop diagram to see it enlarged.

Vertical Loops

These are the ideal choice when available land surface is limited. Drilling equipment is used to bore small-diameter holes 250 feet deep. Click on the loop diagram to see it enlarged.

Pond (Lake) Loops

These are very economical to install when a body of water is available, because excavation costs are virtually eliminated. Coils of pipe are simply placed on the bottom of the pond or lake. Click on the loop diagram to see it enlarged.

Open Loops

These use groundwater as a direct energy source. In ideal conditions, an open-loop application can be the most economical type of geothermal system. Click on the loop diagram to see it enlarged.
