Mcquay International Geothermal Heat Pump 3.5 Ton
There is now a 30% government tax credit for homeowners that install geothermal heat pumps with no maximum limit!!!! Check out Learn more for all the information.
Because underground temperatures do not change and remain relatively constant year-round, a geothermal system, which consists of an indoor unit and a buried earth loop, capitalizes on these constant temperatures.
Why are geothermal heat pumps more efficient than air source heat heat pumps?
The geothermal system cycles water from a well, pond, lake or river, or water piped through underground plastic tubing, to warm or cool the heat pump's refrigerant. Liquid such as water or an antifreeze solution is a much better heat transfer medium than air. Overall, the liquid medium for heat transfer is about 30% more efficient than air.
How many Types of Geothermal Units Exist?

Satisfied Geothermal Customer
It is working beautifully..!
Thank You ! Thank You ! Thank You !!!!!
This absolutely is the slickest, best, and most efficient Water Source Heat Pump I have ever had. The incredible thing is: I replaced a 150,000 btu gas furnace and a central A/C unit; Previously I let the fan run all the time. The incredible thing is our electrical bill has not gone up at all – actually slightly less and the other bonus is – no propane gas bill…! I have bills to prove it.
One happy customer (especially since my trouble / problem is solved)….!!!

Just wanted to let you know that the filter rack worked perfectly. My geothermal system is heating my house and the temperature last night was below 0 degrees. My house is over 3000 sq ft.and compared with oil I save at least $450 even though my electric bill for the month of December was $150 over what I paid last year, and it is less than the cost of heating with wood without all the mess and work. Needless to say I am very happy with my system. At some point, I will need to add some way to heat hot water (we are still using the old oil boiler until the tank is empty) and a small propane furnace to help the geothermal on the coldest days. I am thinking of and on demand hot water system but I would be interested in any suggestions that you might have.

Geothermal Tax Credits
Due to the recent passage of the 2009 Stimulus Package there are new benefits to installing a geothermal heating and cooling system! This package offers a onetime tax credit of 30% of the total investment for all residential ground loop or ground water geothermal heat pump installations. There is no maximum limit cap on installation cost.
Energy Star requirements must be met or exceeded and the unit must be installed after December 31, 2007 to qualify for this tax credit. To file for the credit owners should complete the Renewable Energy Credits subsection on their tax return forms or speak to a professional tax associate. No proof of purchase is required; however, owners are encouraged to keep records of the purchase and installation. The tax credit is available through December 31, 2016.
