Harness the Earth's Energy for Home Heating and Cooling
We Install and Service Geothermal Heat Pump Systems
A Great Natural Resource:
The Constant Temperature of the Earth

Whether it's a hot summer day with a temperature close to 100 or a winter night when the temperature is barely above zero, the temperature a few feet below the ground stays almost consistent all the time. This happens because the earth absorbs almost 50 percent of the sun's energy that hits the surface and none of it escapes. Geothermal (ground source) heat pump systems are able to harness this amazing energy source with an earth loop, as opposed to direct air heat pump systems.

Having one heating and cooling system is more economical than having separate heating and cooling systems. A heat pump basically pumps heat into a building in the winter and pumps heat out in the summer. The geothermal units are installed indoors, too, so they are not subject to the wear and tear of climate changes and severe storms. 

A geothermal heat pump is very efficient and can achieve as much as an efficiency rating of 400%. It is also safe to use because fuels such as natural gas, propane or oil are not required. That means your building would be free from flames, fumes and the danger of carbon monoxide poisoning. This kind of heating and cooling system is also environmentally friendly because it emits no greenhouse gases. 

B&S Sheetmetal Company, Inc. provides all the parts and construction needed for a geothermal heat pump system: the heat pump unit, the liquid heat exchange medium (open or closed loop) and the air delivery system (ductwork). The unit's main components are the compressor, heat exchanger, air coil, blower motor and electrical controls. We service and maintain these parts after the initial installation or can inspect and service a geothermal heat pump system you already have in place.

A geothermal heat pump harnesses the earth's energy that maintains almost a constant temperature a few feet underground. Heat is pumped into the home during the winter and back into the ground in the summer.
