Geothermal Systems

Geothermal Systems

Harness the power of the Earth.

Geothermal systems circulate fluid through the earth and through a coil that either absorbs or dissipates heat, depending on the season.

  • Open Loop: Uses existing groundwater as a heat transfer medium.
  • Pond Loop: Uses the water in a nearby lake or pond to absorb or gather heat.
  • Horizontal Loop: When plenty of space is available, the heat transfer tubes are not as deep, and extend out rather than down.
  • Vertical Loop: When space is limited, the heat transfer tubes are sunk straight down into the earth.
