Geothermal Technology

Geothermal heat pumps use the earth as a heat source in the winter and as a heat storage source in the summer. The ground loop components of a geothermal heating and cooling system can last up to 50 years!

Ground and water temperatures, 6 feet below the earth’s surface, stay relatively constant throughout the year. This allows the system to provide extremely efficient heating or cooling all year long in virtually any climate. Sometimes the term “environmental comfort system” is used to describe a geothermal heat pump. This happens because a heat pump absorbs or rejects heat from the earth and has virtually no impact on the environment.

Geothermal HVAC systems are recognized by the US Department of Energy as the most efficient heating and cooling available, and with uncapped 30% tax credits on the entire installation costs of your Bosch geothermal heat pump system, your savings are compounded. Bosch geothermal systems are among the longest lasting, most efficient technologies available for heating and cooling. So while they cost a little more to install the first time (because of the one-time cost of drilling geothermal loop/well), the payback period and return on investment can be rapid. With an energy consumption reduction of 25% to 70% depending on the differing climatic regions and installation comparisons, you will likely find no better return on your investment.
