We are a geothermal drilling and loop field contractor specializing in turnkey 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.
We can help with more than just geothermal. Several years ago we purchased a directional boring machine to help with our loop field installations and give us more options. This directional drill has a lot of different capabilities and allows the opportunity to run a variety of pipes, conduits, wires, etc. underground with little to no excavation needed. Have an irrigation line or something similar that you need run under a road or some other area that cannot be easily excavated? Let us know and we’d be glad to see if we could help. Typically we can even bore right up into a foundation wall or floor if needed.
