How Geothermal Heat Pumps Work
Despite the changing weather patterns that each season will bring your way, the ground your house is sitting on remains the same temperature-wise. A heat pump will absorb the heat that’s distributed through the ground during the winter, as well as the heat your home receives during the summer, to effectively power your system. By working with the environment your house is built upon, one of these units will end up performing much better than a furnace or boiler while working with much greater efficiency.
How We Install Heat Pumps
Space must be made on the ground you live on to install a heat pump and that depends on factors such as your land availability, the composition of your soil, and the features you desire to have in your unit. Different soil types and rock combinations will affect the temperature of the ground we would be working with. After we survey your land, we’d look at what type of system is right for your house as different environments create different temperatures, which then means you’ll need either a vertical or horizontal ground loop system. Then there’s the amount of standing ground water in your land. The depth, volume, and quality of this water can be further used to power your heat pump for it to work properly. Finally, your landscaping and underground utilities will affect how we may install everything too.

A geothermal heat pump works by transferring energy to and from the earth. It does this by tapping into the ground, which is a natural and constant heat source. The heat pump consists of a ground loop system with a water solution, heat exchanger and ductwork connected back into the building. This system takes either heat from the ground in winter, or cool from the ground in summer, and circulates it throughout the residence.
On average, it costs between $6,000 – $14,000 to have a geothermal HVAC system installed in your home. In many cases tax incentives will help lower the price, though you can expect to pay more if excavation, ground looping or new ductwork is needed.
Average Cost: $9,875
Typical Range: $6,000 – $14,000
