  • How Geothermal Technology Works

    Your property has the potential to be a source of energy for heating and cooling your home. Exterior temperatures rise and fall throughout the year with the changing of the seasons. However, ground temperatures, approximately four to six feet below the Earth's surface, remain relatively moderate and constant all year round. This is because the Earth absorbs and retains about 47% of all the heat energy from the sun. A geothermal system circulates a water-based fluid through a buried loop system to take advantage of these subterranean temperatures. An individual unit is capable of heating and cooling your home while providing some or all of your home's hot water needs. Geothermal systems can save homeowners up to 70% on their monthly utility bills and energy for the life of your home.

 
 
  • Energy Savings

    When you install a geothermal system, you'll notice the immediate savings. A good example of this is in new home construction. Installing a geothermal system marginally raises the mortgage payment; however, the energy savings more than make up the difference by improving your property’s value and lowering your energy costs.

  • Stimulus Bill Increases Homeowner Tax Credit

    The Stimulus Bill signed by President Obama on February 17th, 2009, eliminates the $2,000 limit on the 30% tax credit for homeowners who install geothermal heat pump systems in 2009 and later years. For systems placed in service in 2008, the $2,000 limit still applies, but going forward, homeowners can recoup more of their investment through tax credits. For example, if a homeowner pays $15,000 for a geothermal heat pump system installed in 2009, a tax credit of $4,500 could apply. It’s another way to save money by installing a geothermal unit.
