Geothermal System Installation

Geothermal HVAC systems are innovative, but that doesn’t mean you have to worry about a frustrating installation experience. Here’s what you can expect during geothermal installation:

  • Introduction and Planning

    The introductory step will be meeting with a geothermal HVAC system professional from BW/Cook Service Experts to determine the size of the geothermal system needed to heat and cool your home.

  • Size and Cost

    No two homes in Elkhart are alike, so receiving a free quote for your specific home is crucial to ensuring the greatest energy-efficiency boost in the end. Geothermal systems can be installed alongside your current system or can fully replace a regular system, depending on the local climate. Ask us for more details.

  • Loop Choice

    Depending on land or water resources, there are a few different setups: horizontal loop, vertical loop or pond loop. You’ll pick a configuration option during your consultation.

  • Did You Know?

    Despite the name, geothermal heat pumps are dual function systems that provide both heating and cooling. Whichever system you want to have installed, it will utilize steady below-ground temperatures to efficiently both heat AND cool your home.

Ground-Source Heat Pumps vs. Water-Source Heat Pumps

Geothermal heat pumps can draw on the thermal energy of both the ambient temperature underground as well as the temperature of a body of water. You’ll choose a ground-source or water-source model depending on what will be most efficient.

Ground-Source Heat Pumps

At 5 feet below ground, the temperature remains consistent all year long. Ground-source heat pumps take advantage of this consistency when heating or cooling the property. In heating mode, they pump ambient heat above ground, while cooling mode reverses the process to send heat underground for later use.

Water-Source Heat Pumps

Nearby water sources can also be a source of stable temperatures. Water-source heat pumps are especially efficient when used for cooling, so long as the body of water is at least 1/2-3/4th of an acre as well as 8 feet deep.

Our Geothermal Installation Process

We start by identifying any existing underground utilities to make sure breaking ground doesn’t impact anything. Pipes are then placed underground in a U-shaped pattern. Once the pipes are in place, any open spots can be filled in with grass seed or sod.

After that, we proceed to installing the internal components of the system. A geothermal HVAC system is similar to what you’d expect from traditional heating or central AC installation. We’ll replace the old unit before hooking your new system up to existing ductwork. Before you know it, you’re enjoying energy-efficient heating and cooling!

Each geothermal installation project has its own schedule, so check with BW/Cook Service Experts for a better idea on how much time is needed.

Plan for Annual Maintenance

Once your new geothermal system is installed, you can operate it like other kinds of HVAC systems. Just the same, you should schedule routine preventive maintenance to keep your geothermal system in peak condition.

Geothermal heating and cooling can be as dependable as central forced-air systems, but with even greater energy efficiency. Make the most of these savings by staying up to date on maintenance.
