West Chester Geothermal Heat Pump Installation
Geothermal Heat Pump Installations & Repairs in Downingtown, Chester Springs & the Surrounding Areas
Investing in a geothermal heat pump could be a wonderful way to reduce your energy costs and replace your existing system as well. Although the installation cost can be a little higher because these pumps must go underground, one of these units can cut your water heating costs in half in the winter and eliminate them completely in the summertime.
How Geothermal Heat Pumps Work
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.
Some advantages of using geothermal energy include:
- It is environmentally friendly and has a low carbon footprint.
- The energy is renewable and guaranteed to last, with no fuel required.
- It is reliable and always available to tap into, which can be a problem with other sources of renewable energy like wind and solar.
- There is little to no maintenance necessary for geothermal heat pump systems.

Geothermal heat pumps last a significantly longer time than conventional heating equipment. On average a geothermal heat pump system can last 20-25 years. The underground infrastructure of the heat pump can last even longer upwards of 50 years.
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’ll 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.
