Step 1: Know What Size You Need

Each home is unique. Depending on the size, number of residents, how well the home is insulated, and a number of other factors will be determining factors for what size geothermal heat pump system you will need to install. We recommend having a Manual JLoad calculation done. Send us a drawing or sketch of your home and allow us to properly size your system. When you buy a system from us, we will credit the money toward your system!

Step 2: Determine Your Application

Geothermal can be installed many different ways. You have the option to install a closed or open loop system. If you choose to install a closed loop, you then need to choose whether you want to install a horizontal or a vertical loop system. If you're unsure what kind of application you need, give us a call at 1-800-360-1569.

Step 3: Learn About Federal & State Tax Incentives

One reason why geothermal heat pump systems are so popular is because of their federal and state incentives. For residential customers, geothermal provides a 30% tax credit which includes the cost of the unit plus the cost to have it installed. Additionally, many states offer incentives up to $750 per ton. When you do the math, purchasing a geothermal heat pump system can be very affordable as well as efficient.

30% Residential Energy Tax Credit for Geothermal Heat Pumps

If you are planning to install a geothermal heat pump to provide heating and cooling for your home, or you've already done so, then you are eligible for a 30% tax credit. To qualify, the geothermal heat pump must meet EnergyStar guidelines and have been installed in the home during or after FY 2009. Anyone interested in claiming this tax credit should complete a Residential Energy Credit application form and submit it to the Internal Revenue Service alongside their regular tax return forms. Currently, the IRS requires no proof of purchase, but owners should keep proof of purchase in case of an audit.

This geothermal heat pump tax credit was created by the Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008 (H.R. 1424). Unless amended, the tax credit will extend until 31 December 2016. While the bill mainly targets homeowners, small business and commercial owners may be eligible for a 10% tax credit for their geothermal heat pump investment. Also, taxpayers may take advantage of the tax credit even if the system does not service their primary residence. For more information, contact a tax professional or the Internal Revenue Service.
