Why Install Geothermal?
Living with a geothermal system is an exceptionally
quiet, comfortable, energy efficient, and
environmentally friendly experience!
  • Enhanced comfort – doesn’t dry out the air as much as
    conventional systems.
  • Improved indoor air quality
  • Aesthetics – no loud, ugly outdoor equipment
  • No onsite combustion = no worries about carbon monoxide,
    fuel leaks/spills, or fumes.
  • Reduced noise – no outdoor condenser or chiller
  • Minimal maintenance – primarily filter replacement
  • No weather damage, corrosion, or vandalism
  • Environmentally friendly – greatly reduced greenhouse gas
    emissions
  • Reliable
  • Long service life – 20 years or more (ground loop piping –
    50+ years)
  • “Green” technology recognized by LEED.
Another valid measure of confidence, geothermal systems have earned Energy Star
certification by the EPA and DOE.
How does geothermal work?
Simply put, in winter, warmth is drawn from the earth through a series of pipes,
called a loop, installed beneath the ground. A water solution circulates through
the loop and carries the earth’s natural warmth (in Colorado the earth stays at
a relatively constant temperature of approximately 48-55 degrees) to a heat
pump inside the home. Geothermal vertical loop diagramThe heat pump
concentrates the earth’s thermal energy and transfers it to air circulated
through interior ductwork or to radiant heat in flooring.

In the summer, the process is reversed; heat is extracted from air inside the
home and transferred to the biggest “heat sink” of all- Earth – by way of
geothermal loops.

Also, as an added bonus you can utilize the waste heat removed from the home’
s interior during the cooling season to provide virtually free hot water. This can
result in a total savings in hot water costs of about 30% annually, and further
lower your home’s total emissions. Geothermal can also be used in conjunction
with solar, radiant floor systems, as well as used to preheat domestic hot water.
Who Can Use Geothermal?
Geothermal systems can be found in all types of structures from residential
housing to commercial buildings. From new construction to existing structures,
luxury homes and middle-class homes to townhomes and condos, geothermal
systems are becoming a valuable option.
More builders are seeking
geothermal technology to increase energy efficiency and reduce their
‘carbon footprint’. Benefits that conventional heating and cooling
systems just can’t match.
In NC receive a federal & state tax credit equal to 65% of the system
cost for installing geothermal on your home.

Green Facts!
Putting a geothermal system in a typical home is equal in
greenhouse gas reduction, to planting an acre of trees
.
Home Load Calculation
Did the company do a manual J (heat loss) calculation? You
would know If the sales person spent a couple of hours in your
home measuring your rooms, windows, and insulation.Thats the
most important question, if a company does not do this do not
use them to install your new system. There is no other way to
properly size a system, it cannot be done by square footage
alone, and certainly cannot be done by putting the same size as
the previous equipment. If this corner is cut then imagine how
many other corners will get cut when the installers show up to do
the job.
Make sure your contractor supplies
you with a thorough load
calculation.
