The secret is buried........
Geothermal can clearly save you money and lots of it!
The earth loop transfers heat to and from the ground eliminating the need for fosil fuels. Earth loops are the heart of the technology of the geothermal system. The loops are buried in the earth or submerged in a lake or pond. They transfer heat by circulating a solution of water and environmentally safe antifreeze. The type of loop depends on the terrain, the cost of trenching and drilling, and available space. Ask Geomac Geothermal how we can help you determine the best option for your individual situation.
Horizontal Trench Loops-
If adequate land is available, loops can be installed. Trenches are dug using a backhoe. There are various designs of horizonal loops. Trenches usually range from 100 to 300 feet depending on individual design.
Vertical loops are used when space is limited or where soil conditions make horizonal loops impractical. Installing a vertical loops requires the use of a drilling rig.
If an adequately sized body of water is close to your home, a pond loop can be installed.
