Geothermal Systems

Geothermal heating systems harness heat stored in the earth and transfer it between the earth and your home using a heat pump. Though the air temperature changes drastically from season to season, the temperature of the earth just below the surface is far more consistent and falls generally between 48 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit. In the winter your heat pump pulls heat out of the earth to heat your home. In the summer, your heat pump puts heat back into the earth to cool your home.

Geothermal heating systems are among the most efficient heating and cooling technologies, and though they tend to be relatively expensive upfront, the energy savings are tremendous. Additionally, maintenance is usually minimal because of the simplicity of design. With the 30% federal tax credit, incentives through Efficiency Maine, and utility and state rebates available, there's never been a better time to modernize your home with a geothermal system.
