Ready to Install?
We’re excited that you’ll soon be enjoying the benefits of geothermal heating & cooling in your home! Here are the steps to make your project a reality. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions along the way.
1. Find a Contractor
Contact Yoder Geothermal for a list of heating contractors in your area who install geothermal furnaces. Since we started installing geothermal loopfields in 1990, Yoder Geothermal has partnered with literally hundreds of HVAC dealers throughout Ohio, PA and WV. The team at Yoder Geothermal will help you connect with one near you.
2. Estimate System Size & Cost
Based on the home design, your geothermal HVAC dealer will decide on the size and cost of your geothermal system. The HVAC will normally provide a quote that includes all the components needed for a geothermal system (sheet-metal, unit and loopfield).
3. Insist on Yoder Geothermal for your ground loop installation
With more than 25+ years of installation experience and well over 6,500 systems in the tri-state area, Yoder Geothermal is the most trusted name for geothermal closed loop installations.
4. Schedule the geothermal installation with your HVAC dealer
Generally, your heating contractor will have work to complete before Yoder Geothermal arrives for the ground loop installation. Once they are ready, scheduling of the loop installation is next.
Our field supervisor will contact you to choose a time that is convenient for everyone involved to make a site visit. We never want to be an inconvenience to you.
5. Mark underground utilities to prevent accidents
Marking utilities before drilling is an important step. This is done by 811 locator service; free of charge. But there are often underground utilities that go unmarked, such as cable, satellite, downspout drains, electric or water to a separate building. Our field supervisor will talk to you about these when de does a site visit prior to installing the loopfield.
6. The 2-step Process
Yoder Geothermal’s part of the installation is a two-step process:
The first step is the drilling phase – installing the piping underground. We are committed to as little disruption of landscaping and grass surrounding the loop field as possible while finishing the job to a “rough” backfill state.
Secondly, our experienced hook up crew brings the piping into your home directly to your new geothermal furnace. Each homeowner works with the landscaper of their choice to return grass and plantings to their previous condition after natural settling occurs.
7. Enjoy the Comfort & Savings!
Nothing beats the feeling of saving money while heating and cooling your home at a reasonable cost. With a new geothermal system you can enjoy the constant comfort without stressing out from high energy costs.
