Heat and cool your home while reducing your carbon emissions. Ground-source heat pumps (GSHPs), also known as home geothermal, use the earth's constant underground temperature to draw heat to warm your home more efficiently, which can reduce heating costs by up to 50 per cent. In the summer, it reverses the cycle to keep your home cool and comfortable.
Instead of using outside air like traditional air-source heat pumps, geothermal heat pumps provide both cooling and heating to your home, and are able to maintain the highest efficiency on even the coldest winter nights or the hottest summer days, while saving you money.
Conventional Geothermal is very cost-effective to install in rural areas and ideal for properties that are able to contain two water wells.
Flexible financing program available
Needless to say, a new heating system is an investment. If you need some flexibility on your pay arrangements, you can rest easy knowing that The Stove Store has financing options with flexible terms.
Types of Loops
Used where adequate land space is available, horizontal loops involve one or more trenches that are dug using a backhoe or excavator. High Density Green Geothermal Pipe is inserted, and the trenches are backfilled. Each trench ranges in length up to 300′.
Vertical loops are used when space is limited. Holes are bored using a drilling rig, and a pair of High Density Green Geothermal Pipes with special u-bend fittings is inserted into the holes. A typical home requires three to five bores with about 10′ between each hole. Bore holes can range from 75′ to 300′.
An open loop is used where there is an abundant supply of quality well water. The well must have enough capacity to provide adequate flow for both domestic use and the GeoSmart Energy unit. Discharge water should be sent directly to a second recharge well.
Gaining popularity in “Cottage Country”, Pond or Lake Loops are a great choice if an adequately sized body of water is close to your home. This is an affordable alternative as excavation costs can be virtually eliminated. A series of High Density Green Geothermal closed loops can be extended and sunk to the bottom of the water body. A 1/2-acre, 8-foot-deep pond is usually sufficient for the average home.
