Geothermal Heating & Cooling
Geothermal Systems - Heating & Cooling
The most efficient fuel-burning heater can reach efficiency around 95%, but a geothermal heat pump can move up to 4 units of heat for every unit of electricity needed to power the system, resulting in a practical equivalence of over 400% efficiency.

How it works
Additionally, the lifespan of a ground source heat pump (20-25 years) used in geothermal systems is much longer than a conventional furnace (around 10-15 years), and the underground loop field investment can last a whopping 50-100 years.
We proudly design & install systems from WaterFurnace, the leading manufacturer in the industry. We’re an IGSHPA Accredited Installer (International Ground Source Heat Pump Association) and have been designing & installing geothermal systems in the Spokane / Coeur d’Alene area since 1985. We are also Energy Star Certified and a proud member of RESNET, the nation’s leading home energy efficiency network.

How It Works
Benefits of Geothermal
✔ Reduced Operating Costs – When installed properly, geothermal systems can save you up to 70% on your monthly heating, cooling and hot water bills.
✔ Longer Lifespan – Systems are designed to last 20-25 years, much longer than the expected 10-15 year lifespan of a conventional system.
✔ Free Hot Water – Systems have the capability of capturing reclaimed heat during heating and cooling modes and using it to heat domestic water.
✔ Environmentally Friendly – According to the U.S. Department of Energy and the EPA, geothermal systems are the most environmentally friendly way to heat and cool your home.
✔ Peacefully Quiet – Unlike ordinary air conditioners or heat pumps, there’s no noisy outdoor unit to disturb your outside environment or your neighbors.
✔ Superior Comfort – In the winter, geothermal systems provide warm air without the hot blasts associated with ordinary gas furnaces. In the summer, they deliver cool, dehumidified air.
