Energy Savings

Geothermal heating and cooling technology is using the earth’s renewal energy to provide heat during the winter and air conditioning during the St Louis summers. Because geothermal is using the energy from the earth to generate the power to heat and cool your home, it makes it one of the most efficient ways to heat and cool your home. Traditional gas or oil HVAC systems require fuel for heat and a separate air conditioning system to provide cooling. A geothermal heat pump can provide heating and cooling from one main heat pump and the loops installed in the ground.
