What Is Geothermal Energy?

Geothermal energy is the heat from the earth. It can be found almost anywhere, including North Carolina.

Geothermal heating capitalizes on the fact that temperatures in the Earth remain fairly constant when digging just a few feet below the surface. Whether you live somewhere where temperatures fluctuate or somewhere with a more constant temperature, the temperature below the surface stays relatively the same.

The upper part of the earth’s crust, roughly the first ten feet of ground, can maintain a temperature between about 50°F and 60°F. Geothermal heat pumps can use this energy to heat and cool buildings while using less energy than a typical HVAC system.

Geothermal heat pumps do not burn fossil fuels; instead they simply transfer heat from the earth to your home and back out. Because these pumps harness the earth’s available energy, they can save you anywhere from 30 to 70 percent on your bill over the next five to ten years.

Say it’s 5°F one night during the winter, and you have your thermostat set for a cozy 72°F in your home. It takes a lot less energy to reach your desired temperature if the starting point is 55°F using a geothermal heat pump.

How Does Geothermal Work?

Geothermal HVAC systems use a series of equipment and piping to transfer the earth’s energy to and from your house. A heat pump exchanger is the series of pipes called the “loop.” This loop of pipes is buried in the ground either vertically or horizontally, depending on the geography of the region. A fluid (usually water mixed with environmentally friendly antifreeze) is circulated through the pipes to absorb and dispel the heat from the ground. This heat is then extracted by the heat pump unit and delivered in or out of your living spaces using conventional ductwork air delivery systems.

Don’t Let The Name Fool You!

Geothermal heat pumps can heat and cool a building. They can even be equipped to provide hot water.

Will It Work In My Building?

Geothermal heat pumps are flexible and can be installed in new construction or retrofitted to work with existing systems.

Geothermal Is Environmentally Friendly!

Geothermal systems require very little maintenance and are environmentally conscious. These systems use the least amount of electricity, reduce air and water pollution, and produce the fewest emissions. They are safe for the environment as well as your home. They also provide the most stable comfort level, with more efficient humidity control and less noise.

“Andy is a gifted tech with a vast knowledge of a lot of engineering principles. He should have the opportunity for an engineering degree I would recommend him for all operational checks of geothermal systems, most especially mine. His ideas for operational monitoring for efficiency are sound. Thanks for excellent servicing techs.”

“Originally we had a diagnosis by another technician, who advised all was good but that the thermostat needed to be replaced. The thermostat cost $450. When Curtis C. came with the thermostat he took the time to do another diagnosis and determine that our existing thermostat was programmed incorrectly. His knowledge was exactly what we needed AND appreciated. Great customer service and exceptional skill in his trade. Thank you Curtis C.”

“This service was being done as regular maintenance. I believe it was Luke Hudler who went up to the house in Grassy Creek; got in the gate with the Scott Bros. lock and then found he didn’t have the code to get inside (we’re in Raleigh; in our 80s and have just started renting the house out this year for the first time in 34 years). I had left the code with the office and he call the Scott Bros. office and then called the rental company (Ashe Realty/StayBlueRidge W. Jefferson), who got him in. I was impressed that he sent a message before he went there and texted me when he didn’t have the code, though I missed the text; then he persisted in getting the code from the rental folks and was very pleasant when I apologized to him later. Good manners and great service – thank all of you for a wonderful company we can depend on!!”
