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. They are also a more environmentally beneficial form of heating and cooling buildings. These systems simply move heat from the ground into the building during the winter and during the summer move the heat from the building into the ground. In this way geothermal technology can be a much better use of our energy resources. One other small measure that we at G. O. Loop take to help conserve resources is to recycle the majority of the scrap HDPE pipe that can be left over or discarded from the process of our work. Instead of filling up landfills it can be reused!
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.
