For the Homeowner...
Is your existing gas fired furnace getting old? Tired of paying higher utility bills year after year? Now is the time to think about a renewable energy source that lies right beneath your feet. The earth is a natural solar collector, which remains at a constant temperature 365 days a year. By drilling vertical to depths of 150’ to 450’ and installing geothermal loops, you are able to obtain this energy via a water and antifreeze solution. This then flows through the closed loop well field and into your home to the Ground Source Heat Pump. This unit will replace your old inefficient gas fired furnace.
This new heat pump will hook into your existing duct work, while fractional horsepower motors located on the flow center move the fluid through the loops out in the field. The fluid already existing in the field, now warm, is force back into the house through a return line. When the water/antifreeze mix hits the ground source heat pump, energy is extracted and a blower moves nice warm air into your home.
This system can also be used to cool you house as well. Simply switch your thermostat to cool mode and the entire system works in reverse. The warm air in the house is removed through the return duct system; this heat is absorbed into the fluid and sent back to be absorbed by the ground.
