Geothermal systems are efficient, eco-friendly solutions ideal for saving on your energy bills. Depending on where you live, a geothermal heat pump can supplement traditional HVAC systems, delivering quiet and sustainable comfort all year-round. Ask your local Experts about geothermal heating and cooling installation as well as maintenance.
A geothermal heat pump is a newer kind of HVAC system, but that doesn’t mean you have to worry about a frustrating installation experience. Here’s what you can expect during geothermal installation:
Your first step should be a meeting with a geothermal HVAC system professional from Freschi Service Experts to figure out which size of geothermal system is needed to heat and cool your home.
No two homes in Concord are alike, so receiving a free quote for your specific home is crucial to ensuring the greatest energy-efficiency boost in the end. Geothermal systems can be installed with a current system or can fully replace a regular system, depending on your weather. Ask a member of our staff for all the details.
Depending on land or water resources, there are several different ways to configure your heat pump: horizontal loop, vertical loop or pond loop. You’ll pick a configuration option during your consultation.
Despite the name, geothermal heat pumps are designed to work both ways, with a reversible pump that provides both heating and cooling. Whichever system you want to have installed, it will utilize steady below-ground temperatures to efficiently both heat AND cool your home.
Geothermal heat pumps can extract heat from the ambient temperature several feet underground as well as a sufficiently large body of water. You’ll want to choose between a ground-source or water-source model.
Once you’re several feet underground, the temperature is much more consistent throughout the year. Ground-source heat pumps can use this to their advantage when heating or cooling your home. In heating mode, they pump ambient heat above ground, while cooling mode reverses the process to send heat underground for later use.
Nearby water sources also offer consistent internal temperatures. Water-source heat pumps are ideal for cooling your home, so long as the body of water is at least 1/2-3/4th of an acre in addition to 8 feet deep.
When your geothermal heat pump is in place, you can control it like most other types of HVAC systems. Just the same, scheduling regular maintenance visits can keep your geothermal system in peak condition.
Geothermal heating and cooling can be as dependable as central forced-air systems, but with even greater energy efficiency. Maximize these savings by staying up to date on maintenance.

Geothermal systems use energy from below ground to provide heating and cooling. They use a “loop” system by moving and delivering from either the ground or a water source in heating mode. In cooling mode, this process works in reverse by extracting heat from inside the home to the ground or a water source. The cold air in cooling mode is the result of the process of removing heat and humidity as air is recirculated.
Geothermal HVAC can be more cost efficient over time due to operational savings on utility bills, despite higher initial costs. And they’re more efficient than a standard system with a furnace and air conditioner. Ask about federal rebates and other financial incentives during the installation process.
Geothermal systems don’t generate heat, instead using the Earth’s natural ambient temperature for heating and cooling. You end up reducing your monthly utility bills, and geothermal systems will also usually last longer. If you keep up with routine maintenance, you can get 20 years from a geothermal heat pump and as much as 50+ years for an underground loop system.
Yes! Geothermal heat pumps resemble conventional heat pumps in that they are 2-in-1 systems capable of providing both heating and cooling. Even though it just has ‘heat’ in the name, geothermal heat pumps are just as effective at cooling homes in a variety of climates. In fact, they’re often the most efficient type of system available!
