Geothermal Heating and Cooling Systems
Considering a geothermal heat pump? Dilden Bros. Well Drilling is a recognized leader in Indiana on the drilling of vertical loop systems for the installation of geothermal heating and cooling systems.
Dilden Bros. works closely with your HVAC contractor to install highly energy efficient vertical loop geothermal heat exchange systems. We also test the pressure and conductivity of the system to maximize the efficiency of any geothermal heat pump installed in your home or business.
Geothermal (or ground-source) heat pumps utilize the stable temperature of the ground to cost effectively heat and cool your living or working environment. Ground source heat pumps have been named "the most energy-efficient and environmentally sensitive of all space conditioning systems", by the Environmental Protection Agency. The system's basic concept takes advantage of the earth's constant temperature, approximately 55 degrees, to heat and cool a building. By tapping this steady flow of heat from the earth in the winter, and displacing heat in the earth in the summer, a geothermal heat pump can save homeowners 40 to 70 percent in heating costs and 30 to 50 percent in cooling costs compared to conventional systems.
These environmentally-friendly heating and cooling systems help reduce dependence on foreign oil and ultimately reduce the cost of heating and cooling your home or business when compared long-term against traditional HVAC systems.
Energy Credits Available
Federal tax credits are available to offset the cost of installing or converting to a geothermal system. Now you can realize up to 30% credits from state and federal green stimulus programs for homeowners who install geothermal heat pump systems through 2016. For systems placed in service in 2008, the $2,000 limit still applies. For example, if a homeowner pays $15,000 for a geothermal heat pump system installed in 2013, a tax credit of $4,500 could apply.
Tax credits are available at 30% of the cost, with no upper limit through 2016 (for existing homes & new construction) for heat pump installations that qualify. For more details on these credits go to http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=tax_credits.tx_index.
