Want to Save Money on Your Monthly Energy Bills?

In Durham, geothermal systems can help you save 30-70%, and they are great for the environment. With a geothermal system installed, your backyard becomes an energy source for heating and cooling your indoor air. How exactly does this work?


With outdoor air temperatures fluctuating throughout the year and varying seasonal temperatures, the ground temperatures four to six feet below the Earth’s surface stay relatively moderate with consistent temperatures all year. This occurs because the Earth absorbs 47% of the heat energy that reaches its surface from the sun. A geothermal system is essentially a water-based solution that circulates throughout a buried loop system, taking advantage of these constant temperatures. It’s really that simple: a single piece of equipment has the strength and ability to heat and cool your indoor home environment, additionally supplying some of your home’s hot water. In Durham, geothermal systems are a great way to save money and go green at the same time.

How Do Geothermal Systems Protect the Environment?

The United States Environmental Protection Agency recognizes Geothermal as the most environmentally-safe, cost effective heating and cooling system available today. When you install a geothermal system, it is equal to planting 750 trees or removing 2 cars from the road.

Generate Positive Cash Flows

The buried loop system will bring higher installation costs, however the significant savings in utility bills and maintenance costs will pay for the system within 3 to 5 years. Less maintenance and more efficient heating and cooling will extend the life of the system.

Free Hot Water Generation

Much of your hot water can be produced at higher efficiencies than ordinary methods when you use a geothermal system. Using a simple connection, the geothermal system can deliver hot water that is stored in your hot water heater. The heat removed from your home during the geothermal cooling cycle is easily deposited directly to the hot water heater instead of the ground, providing you with virtually free hot water.

Long System Lifespan

Aside from periodic checks and filter changes, your equipment requires little to no maintenance and its life is close to 20 or more years, which is much greater than conventional HVAC systems. The indoor location of a geothermal system keeps it away from harsh weather elements.

Clean and Safe

Geothermal units do not use fossil fuels such as propane and natural gas. Dangerous combustion threats are eliminated. No need to worry about flames, odors, fumes or carbon monoxide.

Improved Overall Comfort

With even heating and cooling, the air will be more comfortable. You will not experience the hot and cold blasts of air that exist with conventional systems. The air is dehumidified during hot summer months with a Geothermal system.

Enjoy A Quiet System

As quiet as a refrigerator or freezer, geothermal systems use the same principles to operate and have a similar noise level. There is no visual outdoor unit, which makes the outdoor environment more attractive and noise-free.
