Geo Thermal Heating and Air Conditioning

Geoexchange (sometimes called geothermal, or ground-source heating and cooling) taps the renewable, safe, and virtually endless energy supply that lies just below the earth's surface.

The way it works is simple. In winter, warmth is drawn from the earth through a series of pipes, called a loop, installed beneath the ground. A refrigerant circulating through this piping loop carries the earth's natural warmth to a heat pump inside the home.

The heat pump concentrates the earth's thermal energy and transfers it to air circulated through interior ductwork to fill every space in your home.

In the summer, the process is reversed; heat is extracted from air inside the house and transferred to the biggest "heat sink" of all--Mother Earth--by way of the ground loop piping. The Geoexchange system also uses some of the heat extracted from the interior in the summer to provide free hot water--saving as much as 30% on your annual hot water bill.

Because Geoexchange technology uses such a readily available source of energy--and uses it so efficiently--it can save a substantial amount of money on monthly utility bills.

In fact, a typical 2000-square-foot home in our local climate can be heated and cooled for a year-round average of just $600 per year with efficiencies up to 400%..

The Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy have both recognized Geoexchange technology as the most efficient and environmentally friendly home heating and cooling system available.
