We are a geothermal looping contractor specializing in the installation of the underground closed loop piping for geothermal heating/cooling systems.
A geothermal heat pump system is a refrigeration device that utilizes a ground loop and the earth's energy to heat and/or cool a structure. The refrigeration cycle can leverage and multiply input energy into additional BTU's. Connected to the earth with its relatively stable temperatures, performance can be as much as 4 or 5 times the input. This can lead to substantial savings on the cost of heating and cooling a building.
The closed loop (or geo-exchange) is a buried series of pipes that circulates a fluid to transfer the energy between the heat pump and the earth outside of the building.
G.O. Loop installs these in-ground loops and fills them with the fluid needed to transfer the heat. Please check out the Geothermal Basics section for a more detailed description of the process of geothermal.
Geothermal systems can be a great money saving investment. These savings are now even greater due to the help the government is giving to encourage the use of geothermal in efforts to conserve our energy resources. Homeowners putting in a residential system can receive a 30% tax credit figured from the cost of the system. This can help offset the upfront costs and lead to an even quicker payback. There are also government programs for larger scale commercial geothermal installations and/or upgrades. See you tax professional for details.
