A Safer Heating & Cooling Option

How Geothermal works in Central MN

Outdoor temperatures in Minnesota can fluctuate extremely throughout the year. In contrast, ground temperatures 8 feet below the earth’s surface remain at a nearly constant 50-55 degrees year-round from absorbing the sun’s energy.

So how does it work? A series of pipes and hoses, called a “loop field” is installed beneath the earth’s surface. Year round, this loop field circulates a mixture of water & antifreeze to exchange heat in or out of your home by using the earth’s constant warm temperature. This liquid mixture carries heat into your home until it reaches a heat pump (also known as a ground source heat pump). This pump removes the heat from the water mixture and uses it to heat your home or building.

Geothermal Heating

During winter, geothermal systems absorb heat stored in the ground through the loop, and transfer it to the ground source heat pump where the heat is concentrated and pumped into your home.

Geothermal Cooling

During summer, geothermal systems absorb heat from your home and disperse it into the cooler earth. The cool antifreeze returning to the home is used to create cool, dehumidified air.

Geothermal Installation

Hydron System - Reliable, Efficient, and Sustainable

Geothermal systems can be installed on nearly any home or business. Although horizonal loop fields are most common, vertical loop fields can be installed if your property is located on a smaller lot. If you live on/near water, pond loops or open loops might be an option as well.

Federal Tax Credits

The ‘Inflation Reduction Act’, signed into law in August 2022, allows for a 30% tax credit for Energy Star qualified residential geothermal heat pumps. This tax credit applies to geothermal systems installed in 2022 through 2032. Commercial geothermal heat pump credits were also increased and extended.

For more information on federal tax credits, we encourage you to contact your accountant.

Additional Rebates

Many electrical utility providers encourage the installation of ground source heat pumps and also offer rebates to customers who have them installed.

More information on rebates can be found by using this tool or by contacting your utility provider directly.
