Geothermal Energy is Hot Right Now

Geothermal heat pumps heat and cool buildings by using the constant temperature of the earth instead of the outside air temperature.  This is a more a clean, reliable, and renewable source of energy.

No matter the scorching heat of the summer or the negative temperature in the winter, a few feet below earth’s surface remains between 45-75 degrees.  Similar to a cave, the temperature under the ground is warmer than the air above in the colder months and cooler in summer months.

Geothermal heat uses a ground heat exchanger to heat, cool, and even sometimes supply hot water. These pumps are longer lasting, quiet, require minimal maintenance, and the outside air temperature does not influence them.

Installation of geothermal systems can be anywhere between $20,000 to $25,000 to install.  While this is much more than the average air-source system, the additional costs are returned in energy savings in 5-10 years by reducing utility bills from anywhere between 40%-60%.
