  1. A Geothermal Heating System helps protects our natural environment. Rather than burning fossil fuels and giving off harmful chemicals, these environmentally friendly systems draw energy from the Earth and utilizes an underground loop system to exchange energy between the ground and your home.
  2. You'll keep money in your wallet. A new comfort system can help reduce your family's heating and cooling costs by as much as 50 to 60%.
  3. Optional hot water generators can help provide your family's domestic hot water needs at a fraction of the cost of electric or gas water heaters.
How It Works Geothermal renewable energy draws upon the Earth's constant temperature. Yes, the average Greater Cincinnati air temperature ranges from 16˚ to 89˚ throughout the year with peaks and valleys that can result in 100+˚ days in the heat of Summer and sub-zero days in the dead of Winter. However, the Earth absorbs almost 50% of all solar energy and about 4 to 6 feet below the surface, the temperature remains relatively moderate and consistent all year, about 50˚F to 70°F depending on geographic location. Utilizing an underground loop system, a geothermal unit uses this constant temperature to exchange energy between your home and the earth as needed for heating and cooling.
