What is a Geothermal Heat Pump (GSHP)

In America today, the new hot topic is "going green". Over the course of the last few years, the country has become more environmentally aware than ever before. Families all over the nation have been working hard to find the most efficient appliances, cars, home windows, electronics, and many other facets of everyday life. In HVAC, the focus has been put on geothermal heat pumps a/k/a ground source heat pumps (GSHP) making them incredibly popular over the course of the last few years. They are similar to air source heat pumps in that they heat and cool homes using the transfer of heat. They both can be used for forced air and radiant floor applications.

 Air Source heat pumps use the ambient air temperature as a source of heat transfer, while geothermal heat pumps utilize the steady temperature of the ground to heat and to cool homes. There are three comparisons which set geothermal heat pumps apart from traditional air source heat pumps.

Geothermal heat pumps exchange heat more efficiently, they are more environmentally friendly, and they are incredibly competitive with traditional air source heat pumps. They are so much better environmentally than traditional air source heat pumps that the federal government is offering incredible tax credits for families who choose geothermal heat pumps. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and the DOE (Department of Energy) concluded that geothermal heat pumps are the most environmentally friendly and cost-efficient way to heat and cool your home. Geothermal systems emit no carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, or other greenhouse gasses that can be harmful to the environment and your family. We know your first priority is to keep your home and family safe and comfortable - now you can do that as well as helping the environment with Geothermal systems - they are truly a natural green way of life.

The first, the oldest, and the ORIGINAL GeoTherm Company in NY since 1985
If you have stumbled across this page while looking for the most experienced, knowledgeable, design, build, install & service geothermal contractor, you may stop searching…you have found them. 

You will most likely find many companies offering geothermal, especially when the government might be offering incentives. But all the manufacturer sales meetings in the world will NOT prepare a contractor as real-world field experience does. 

We’ve seen it many, many times….a guy leaving a training seminar sporting a new fancy shirt & cap adorned with mfg’s logos, eyes all glazed over ready to start a new world power. Bank loan, website, convincing salesman, new trucks, drilling rig etc. all lined up. Skip ahead two years: bankruptcy, class action lawsuits and a whole bunch of geothermal installations that are not working right, or not working at all. We know – we get the phone calls to make the repairs & listen to the stories. After 29 years we’ve heard a LOT.
