Geothermal Heat Pumps:

The "dirt"cheap way to heat & cool your home...

and no volcano is needed. "Geothermal heat pumps are the absolute best way to space condition your home or office", according to the US Environment Protection Agency, the US Department of Energy, the CA Consumer Energy Commission, and a dozen other agencies. After decades of actual research, not speculation, experts agree that Geothermal heat pumps can heat, cool, and provide domestic hot water far more cost-effectively than any other type of system, can last twice as long as conventional systems, and provide safe (no combustion, no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning) and amazingly comfortable heating, cooling, and domestic hot water for your home or office. 

The US DOE declares, "geothermal heat pumps have been in use since the late 1940s. Geothermal heat pumps (GHPs) use the constant temperature of the earth as the exchange medium instead of the outside air temperature. This allows the system to reach efficiencies of 300%-600%". Compared to efficiencies of 80% to 95% for propane or gas furnaces, this equates to savings of $1000s of dollars per year.

The California Consumer Energy Center states, "studies show that approximately 70 percent of the energy used in a geothermal heat pump system is renewable energy from the ground. The earth's constant temperature is what makes geothermal heat pumps one of the most efficient, comfortable, and quiet heating and cooling technologies available today. While they may be more costly to install initially than regular heat pumps, they can produce markedly lower energy bills".

How much can you save over twenty years?

$20,000, $40,000, $60,000, $100,000 or more? Yes, real savings figures, being realized by millions of satisfied people worldwide, that decided to invest in a time tested solution that takes advantage of the free energy locked in the soil of their own back yard. The savings you achieve will depend on your weather, current fuel (electricity, gas, or propane), size and condition of your home, thermostat settings, and so on. 

We can help. In a little over an hour, a Sierra Eco Systems technician will measure your home, windows and doors, evaluate insulation, and ask a few simple questions, and provide you with a computer generated report showing the savings you can expect to realize by choosing to invest in a Geothermal heat pump.

Geothermal heat pumps last two times longer

than conventional furnaces or air conditioners - 20 to 24 years, or more, according to the US EPA. Geothermal heat pumps are compact and easy to install. A single vertical packaged Geothermal Heat Pump, about the size of a standard gas/propane furnace, is all that is needed to heat, cool, and generate domestic hot water. No longer do you need the outdoor condensor unit (the noisy box under your master bedroom window) to provide air conditioning. 

 We are Geothermal Heat Pump specialists

with years of experience in designing and installing Ground Source Heat Pump Systems for residential and commercial customers throughout Northern Nevada and Northern California. We are passionate about the environment, about reducing your energy costs, and your satisfaction. Very few companies focus like we do. Your neighborhood HVAC contractor may install a Geo system for you, but its only a sideline and certainly not their main business. Geothermal is all we do. Period. It is our focus, combined with our training, experience, education, tools, equipment, and passion that assures you will receive a cost-effectively designed and expertly installed system, which will provide years of all-season comfort, with the absolute lowest operating costs. 

Energy savings of up to 70%, even 80%

because geothermal makes use of the earth's ability to absorb or provide heat, which dramatically increases the efficiency of these time-tested systems. Geothermal systems combine a traditional heat pump system with a recirculating system of pipes placed under the ground around your home or office. While somewhat more expensive to install than more basic systems, the geothermal system is far less expensive to operate, resulting in paybacks occurring in as little as three to five years.

Contact us now to arrange a no-cost, no-obligation site survey. Our team will visit your site, discuss your heating, cooling, and energy conservation objectives, conduct a comprehensive load analysis of your home or office, and provide a detailed design and system proposal for your review.
