We are happy to go over the benefits and process of installing a geothermal system at your home or business.
Our geothermal services include:
- Thermal Conductivity Testing- To put it simply, thermal conductivity testing involves running a test on the area where you want to install your geothermal system in order to determine how well it distributes the heat that is put into it. This will help us to accurately calculate how deep and/or long the loops for your specific system will need to be to meet your needs.
- Geothermal Inspections- We are trained on how to properly install efficient geothermal loops for projects of all sizes. Because of our dedication to high-quality work, we decided to go above and beyond and also get certified as geothermal inspectors. We focus on commercial projects because we want to make sure the larger and more complicated projects are up to par, as they always should be.
- Geothermal Drilling- When installing a vertical loop for your geothermal system, holes will need to be drilled. Because we also drill for water wells, this leads us to be well trained on how to drill and to have the appropriate equipment ready to do the job from beginning to end.
- Loop Installation Options- There are many different options for the type of loop that gets installed for your location, but the best one for you is ultimately determined by the location, the amount of space, the amount of available water, and how well the area absorbs heat.

Overall, there are only two types of loops, but a few different ways to install each. Open loops are great for projects that have an abundance of water available (approximately 1.5 gallons/minute per ton of equipment) AND a great place to dump all of this water once it is heated up (usually another well or in a reservoir on the surface). Alternatively, closed loops are more eco-friendly because the water that is put into the loops continuously circulates around, and they are also low maintenance because once the system is sealed and begins circulating, the only work that would need to be done to it is if the seal is broken and pressure inside the loop is lost. If you choose to install a closed loop, you can have it installed horizontally (generally less expensive, BUT it requires a lot of land), vertically (requires a lot less land because the loops are placed in deep, drilled holes), or even placed in a lake/pond (good if your project is close to the water AND the water is consistently 9 feet deep year-round at a minimum).
