Geothermal

The Heating and Cooling System right in your own backyard
A few feet under the ground, there is an amazing energy source just waiting to be used. It's free, clean, and reusable. Technology now allows tapping of the earth's solar storage capacity to provide energy for heating and cooling of your home.

Geothermal Systems use the earth's energy to heat your home in the winter and cool it in the summer. Geothermal works with the earth and the sun to provide constant, comfortable heating and cooling.

Geothermal is a simple concept. A high strength, thermal plastic pipe is buried into the ground in a loop configuration. A closed loop is filled with a safe water/antifreeze solution that transfers heat to or from the earth as needed. The same thing applies for an open loop that taps into a well, then discharges the water once it has been used. The closed loop is almost maintenance free, with a life expectancy of over 50 years.

Whether you're building a new home or upgrading your current home's heating and cooling system, you should look into a geothermal system. Installing geothermal will add to the value of your home.

This is a very safe, efficient, and economical way to heat and cool your home.
