Frequently Asked Questions

What is the property footprint of a geothermal heating and cooling system?
The property footprint of a geothermal heating/cooling system varies depending on the type of system used. For a horizontal loop, a sizeable amount of flat land is required, about 100 - 400 feet. A vertical loop does not require as much of a surface-area footprint, but requires drilling through about 100 - 400 feet of soil to be effective. A pond loop may have a similar footprint depending on the distance of the pond from your home or place of business. An open loop's real estate is similar to a vertical loop, depending on the water table in your area.

How much space will I need inside my house for a geothermal unit?
The inside units themselves are not that much larger, if at all, than a typical oil or electric furnace. You can rest assured that you will still have the same, if not more, space than with your existing heating systems.

How soon can I can expect a geothermal unit to pay for itself?
Depending on the energy cost of your existing heating/cooling systems, as well as desired operating temperatures, it can take as much as three years, or as little as less than a year. After that time, the savings will continue. Also remember that as energy costs rise in the future, the Earth's energy remains relatively constant, thus further increasing your savings over time.
