The Geothermal Drilling Process

There are a few different options when it comes to the type of loop system you will use for your geothermal heating and cooling system as well as how that system will be installed. If you decide to go with a horizontal installation a trench will be dug on your property and the pipes will lie within that trench. This is usually cheaper than a vertical installation, as it requires less work, but it is only possible if you have enough usable land to lay the pipes horizontally. If you do not, a vertical installation may be necessary.

A vertical installation involves geothermal drilling, which can raise the price of the installation and may extend the length of the installation process. However, because of the depth at which the drilling allows the pipes to place you can wind up with a more powerful geothermal system. The heat source will not be affected and fluctuate this far down as it may with a shallow installation. This can help to make your geothermal heating and cooling system more efficient and effective. Call Air Mechanical today to learn more about the geothermal drilling process.

Why a Vertical Installation Requiring Geothermal Drilling May be Necessary

There are a number of factors that come into play when beginning the installation process of a geothermal heating and cooling system. Some of them may limit or dictate your installation options. In addition to land availability and soil content and quality, weather may inform your installation decision. In areas where there are very harsh, cold winters, a vertical installation may be preferred because it will allow you to draw heat from deeper beneath the frost line than a horizontal installation, at a depth where temperatures are more constant. Let Air Mechanical help you decide if geothermal drilling for a vertical loop installation is your best option.
