We specialize in all of the following designs, providing you a system for nearly every situation. Let us tap the green energy in your back yard.

Vertical Geothermal Installation
Vertical bore holes provide the least disruptive form of geothermal loop installations. Because piping is installed vertically, an average residential loop system can be located within a 12’ x 24’ area free of utilities.

Horizontal Geothermal Installation
A horizontal system is the most common geothermal loop installed today. However, it also requires the largest footprint of utility-free ground. Costs are typically less than a vertical system.

Pond Loop
Water temperatures at the bottom of a pond remain relatively constant year round, providing an alternative geothermal loop application. The pond loop is the least expensive option given that you already have a pond with at least 3/4 acre of surface area and 9 feet average depth.

Horizontal Directional Bore
The horizontal directional bore is an installation option where ground conditions are not conducive for installing a vertical or horizontal system. Costs are similar to vertical, but the system requires more land than horizontal trenching.
