We Support Geothermal Heating and Cooling in Hillsborough

Geothermal systems are efficient, eco-friendly methods beneficial for saving on your utility bills. Depending on where you live, a geothermal heat pump can supplement your traditional HVAC system, bringing silent and sustainable comfort all year-round. Call the professionals for geothermal heating and cooling installation as well as maintenance. We can make you feel comfy with this alternative HVAC technology. 

Expert Geothermal System Assembly

Geothermal HVAC systems are advanced, but their installation process is simple. 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 Fras-Air/General Service Experts Total Home Comfort to determine the size of the geothermal system needed to heat and cool your home.

  • Initial Quote on Size and Cost

    No two homes in Hillsborough are alike, so we’ll give you a free quote for your specific home to ensure you get the greatest energy-efficiency boost. Geothermal systems can be positioned next to your current system or can fully replace a regular system, depending on your weather. Ask us for more details.

  • Loop Selection

    We’ll help you decide on the best setup for your home, depending on availability of land and water resources, whether it’s horizontal loop, vertical loop, or pond loop.

  • More Than Just Heating

    Despite the name, geothermal heat pumps are 2-in-1 systems that provide both heating and cooling. They utilize steady below-ground temperatures to efficiently both heat AND cool your home.

Let Us Compare Ground-Source Heat Pumps vs. Water-Source Heat Pumps

Geothermal heat pumps can obtain the thermal energy of the ambient temperature underground or the temperature of a body of water. You’ll want to weigh out the differences between a ground-source or water-source model.

Ground-Source Heat Pumps

At 5 feet below ground, the temperature delivers more consistency throughout the year. Ground-source heat pumps use this consistency to transfer heat in or out of a building. In heating mode, they pump underground heat into the building, while cooling mode reverses the process to reserve heat underground for later use.

Water-Source Heat Pumps

Ponds, lakes, and other water systems can also offer consistent internal temperatures. Water-source heat pumps are extremely helpful for cooling, as long as there’s a nearby body of water that’s at least ½–¾ of an acre and 8 feet deep.

Our Specialized Geothermal Installation Process

We start by detecting any existing underground utilities to make sure that breaking ground won’t disturb anything. Pipes are then placed underground in a U-shaped pattern; any divots can be refilled with grass seed or sod.

Then we install the internal components of the geothermal HVAC system, which is similar to what you might expect from traditional heating or central AC installation. We’ll remove the previous unit before connecting your new system to existing ductwork. Before you know it, you’ll be enjoying energy-efficient heating and cooling!

Each geothermal installation project has a variated timeline, so consult Fras-Air/General Service Experts Total Home Comfort about how long your installation will take.
