Detmer and Sons Geothermal Advantage
Did you know that the US Environmental Protection Agency states that geothermal systems are the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean, and cost effective space conditioning systems available today.
Did you also know that thanks to improved technology, geothermal systems are no longer just beneficial for homes in rural areas with plenty of land? Today geothermal systems are now available and cost effective for homes located in city with limited space so that all homeowners can take advantage of this energy efficient system.
Detmer and Sons can help you choose the best geothermal system suitable to your lifestyle and your home’s design.
We also guarantee your geothermal system will be completed in a timely and professional manner.
Geothermal Horizontal Loop
A horizontal closed loop field is composed of pipes that run horizontally in the ground. A long horizontal trench, deeper than the frost line, is dug and U-shaped or slinky coils are placed horizontally inside the same trench. Excavation for shallow horizontal loop fields is about half the cost of vertical drilling, so this is the most common layout used wherever there is adequate land available.
Geothermal Vertical Loop
A vertical closed loop field is composed of pipes that run vertically in the ground. A hole is bored in the ground, typically 50 to 400 feet (15–122 m) deep. Pipe pairs in the hole are joined with a U-shaped cross connector at the bottom of the hole. The borehole is commonly filled with a bentonite grout surrounding the pipe to provide a thermal connection to the surrounding soil or rock to improve the heat transfer. Thermally enhanced grouts are available to improve this heat transfer.

How Can Geothermal Save Me Money?
A geothermal system taps into the earth to capture free, renewable energy. The system extracts that free energy for all your heating and cooling needs. The transfer of energy is done through a series of pipes buried in the ground. This free and renewable energy can save up to 70% in heating costs, up to 50% in cooling costs, and around 30-50% in hot water costs.
Why Choose a Geothermal System
- Federal Rebate: The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, signed in February 2018, reinstated the tax credit of geothermal heat pumps. The property credit provides 30% for Geo-Thermal systems place in service by 12/31-2019, 26% between 12/31/19 and 1/1/2020 and 22% between 12/31/2020 and 1/1/2022
- Savings: Geothermal systems can save your home up to a 60% savings compared to ordinary systems.
- Environmentally Friendly: Geothermal systems are clean, green and reduce your carbon footprint for generations.
- Proven: Geothermal technology has provided proven results for over 40 years.
- Reliable: Geothermal units average life is around 25 years. They also contain fewer moving parts and require limited maintenance compared to your conventional HVAC system.
- Flexibility: Geothermal systems provide your home with its required heating, cooling and hot water needs with one system.
- Free Hot Water: During unit operation, free excess heat is used to supplement the home’s water heater.
- Safe and Clean: No flame, no flue, no odors.
- Plus – Many utilities offer incentives such as rebates or financing programs to encourage the installation of geothermal heat pumps. Our consultant would be happy to explain further.
