Go Green with Geothermal Drilling by C&J!
What is Geothermal Drilling?
Just like a traditional water well provides a home with fresh water, a geothermal heat pump can provide that home with natural heating and cooling. Geothermal drilling is used to access the earth’s constant underground temperature. This heat source can be used for many home applications including power generation, heating and cooling, and even for hot tubs!
In central Indiana, the best name in geothermal drilling is C&J Well Co. Our team of experts specializes in geothermal systems. Contact us today to learn how you can cut your heating and cooling bills by half when you invest in geothermal drilling.
Environmentally friendly heating and cooling, with less maintenance and lower costs. That’s what you get when you choose geothermal drilling. Geothermal heat pumps harness the consistent year-round temperatures of the ground, below the frost line. In the winter, geothermal heat pumps send heat from the earth into a building. In the summer, this cycle is reversed by using the heat pump to remove heat from the building. Because of constant ground temperatures, geothermal systems feature more efficient temperature control.
The Two Main Types of Geothermal Drilling Systems
When it comes to geothermal drilling and heat pump systems, customers have two basic options depending on their specific needs: closed loop and open loop.
In a closed loop system, underground piping loops are filled with antifreeze fluids that help transfer ground temperatures to the geothermal heat pump. These systems are typically installed horizontally or vertically depending on property size.
In an open loop system, the piping relies on groundwater. For this to work efficiently, homeowners need a large existing source of groundwater. The spent water must be drained, and there are a number of ways to dispose of this used water.
No matter your needs, C&J has a geothermal drilling solution for you.
When constructing a geothermal system, geothermal drilling must meet stringent construction plans. At C&J, we make sure to follow all rigorous guidelines and use only the highest quality materials when performing geothermal drilling and constructing the system. Homeowners have different options for systems based on their budget and property. Even tight budgets and small properties can benefit from geothermal drilling.
