Heat and Cool Your Home Using the Earth’s Energy
Geothermal heat pumps are 50 to 70% more efficient than ordinary heating systems and 30-60% more efficient than standard air conditioners.
That means lower energy costs for you and greater energy savings for the life of the system.
The ground around us is a tremendous renewal energy source because it absorbs and stores nearly half of the solar energy radiated by the sun.
As a result, the ground remains at a constant, moderate temperature just a few feet below the surface all year round.
Geothermal Cooling is a Breeze!
In the cooling season, geothermal cooling systems capture heat inside your home and transfer it to the underground loop where it is then absorbed by the cooler earth. The geothermal heat pump uses the cool water returning from the ground to create cool, dehumidified air conditioning for your home.
Just as in the heating season, the outside air is hottest when you need cooling the most. A traditional air source heat pump is forced to work inefficiently to produce cooling due to the extreme heat present in the air.
In contrast, a geothermal heat pump consumes less energy as it easily pumps the heat from inside your home to the cool earth. This makes geothermal cooling significantly more energy efficient.

6 Benefits of Geothermal Ground Source Heating and Cooling
Standard systems draw their heating and cooling ability from the surrounding air and the wide temperature swings mean they have to work that much harder to keep your home comfortable.
Geothermal heating and cooling systems are not subject to these energy-robbing inefficiencies. Instead, they take advantage of the stable temperature underground using a piping system, commonly referred to as a “loop”.
Water circulates in the loop to exchange heat between your home, the ground source heat pump, and the earth, providing consistent comfort at remarkably high efficiencies.
Geothermal water source systems are up to 6X more energy efficient and can cut your heating, cooling, and hot water costs by up to 80%.
“The air temperature above ground varies greatly from summer to winter, placing a tremendous burden on traditional air-source heating and cooling systems”
EFFICIENT GEOTHERMAL HEATING WITHOUT THE DANGEROUS EXHAUST EMISSIONS
During the heating season, geothermal heating and cooling systems absorb heat stored in the ground through the water that circulates in its underground loop. This heat is carried to the ground source heat pumps where it’s concentrated and then sent as warm, comfortable air throughout your home.
The colder it is outside, the harder your heating system has to work. As a result, a traditional air source heat pump is limited in the amount of heat it can generate to keep your home warm.
In contrast, a geothermal heat pump system takes advantage of the abundant heat that is stored in the ground, consuming significantly less energy as it easily absorbs ground heat via the piping loop buried beneath the surface.
This provides tremendous efficiency advantages for geothermal heating.
Gas furnaces burn natural gas to provide heat for your home and waste as much as 30% of the fuel in the combustion process. On the other hand, geothermal systems use significantly less energy by collecting heat from the earth, achieving 400-600% efficiencies.
Enjoy a 30% Geothermal Heat Pump Tax Credit With No Limit!
Extreme energy efficiency is why geothermal systems still qualify for generous federal tax credits. An exciting new tax credit is now available for smart home and commercial building owners who install geothermal heating and cooling systems through the Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008 (H.R. 1424).
H.R. 1424 offers a onetime tax credit of 30% (no maximum) of the total investment for homeowners who install residential ground loop or ground water geothermal heat pumps.
A credit of 10% of the total investment is also available (no maximum) for a commercial system installation
