How Does Geo Work?
The ground absorbs nearly half of the solar energy our planet receives. As a result, the earth remains at a constant, moderate temperature just below its surface all year round. However, air temperature varies greatly from summer to winter, making air source (traditional) heating and cooling least efficient when you need it the most. Geothermal systems take advantage of the stable temperature underground using a piping system, commonly referred to as a "loop." Water circulates in the loop to exchange heat between your home, the ground source heat pump, and the earth, providing heating, cooling, and hot water at remarkably high efficiencies. More »

ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling systems qualify for a recently implemented federal tax credit allowing homeowners to deduct 30% of the total geothermal system installed cost from their tax liability or tax due. The Residential Energy Efficient Property Tax Credits program is part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. These nonrefundable federal energy tax credits help homeowners pay for qualified residential alternative energy equipment, such as geothermal heat pumps. More »
What is a geothermal heat pump? A geothermal or "ground-source" heat pump is an electrically-powered device that uses the natural heat storage ability of the earth and/or the earth’s groundwater to heat and cool your home or business. More »
5 Geo Myths
Myth 1: Geothermal is only for the 1%.
Fact: While geothermal heating and cooling systems do typically cost more upfront than a conventional HVAC system, they are much more energy and cost efficient in the long run – and the savings begin immediately. Geothermal systems also qualify for a 30% Federal Tax Credit on installation costs (including landscaping). More »
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) geothermal systems are, "the
most energy-efﬁcient, environmentally clean, and cost-effective space conditioning systems
available today." Extremely high levels of efﬁciency are possible because a geothermal heat pump only uses electricity to move heat, not produce it. Overall, geothermal technology offers the highest cooling and heating efﬁciencies of any system available today. More »
