Ground Source Heat Pumps


You are standing on the most efficient heating system available - the earth. The Ground Source Heat Pump is the ultimate heating, cooling and water heating system. It is efficient, affordable and safe. Heat is much easier to move than to create. The system has three basic components: the heat pump unit; buried plastic pipe loops; a pump to circulate fluid through the loop.

In winter, an antifreeze solution circulates through the plastic pipe-loop and picks up heat from the earth. Vapor compression/refrigeration enhances the heat and then blows warm air through the ductwork into your home. No backup heating system is needed if the system is installed and sized properly.

In summer, the heat pump removes heat from the house and transfers it into the earth. Excess heat is used to heat your water. You can use the system to heat 60 - 70 percent of your domestic hot water for FREE all summer.

The Ground Source Heat Pump is often 300 percent or more efficient. The most expensive gas furnaces only reach 90 - 95 percent efficiency levels. A Ground Source Heat Pump can lower your home heating costs as much as 50 - 70 percent and reduce your cooling costs 30 - 40 percent over conventional electric systems.
