Geothermal Heat Pumps quietly and reliably harness the renewable energy generated by the sun that is stored in the ground near the Earth’s surface. They make significant contributions to a cleaner environment by saving energy, cutting fossil fuel use, and reducing carbon emissions.

Geothermal Heat Pumps (GHP) are self-contained units that efficiently heat and cool
homes and commercial buildings while providing hot water. They use standard electronic
thermostats and duct systems, making them appropriate for retrofits of standard heating,
ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Geothermal Heat Pumps can be sized
to heat and cool any building in any climate.
The above-ground heat pump is relatively inexpensive, with underground installation of ground loops (piping) accounting for most of the system’s cost. Heat pumps can support space heating and cooling needs in almost any part of the country, and they can also be used for domestic hot water applications. Increasing the capacity of the piping loops can scale this technology for larger buildings or locations where space heating and cooling, as well as water heating, may be needed for most of the year.
