Geothermal Heating and Cooling in Nashville

Geothermal systems are efficient, eco-friendly solutions ideal for saving on your utility bills. Depending on where you live, a geothermal heat pump can supplement traditional HVAC systems, delivering quiet and sustainable comfort all year-round. Ask your local Experts about geothermal heating and cooling installation as well as maintenance.

Geothermal System Installation

Geothermal HVAC systems are innovative, but that doesn’t mean you have to worry about a frustrating installation experience. Here’s what you can expect during geothermal installation:

  • Introduction and Planning

    The introductory step will be meeting with a geothermal HVAC system professional from Donelson Air Service Experts to properly size the geothermal system needed to heat and cool your home.

  • Size and Cost

    No two homes in Nashville are alike, so receiving a free quote for your specific home is crucial to ensuring the greatest energy-efficiency boost in the end. Geothermal systems can be installed with a current system or can fully replace a regular system, depending on the local climate. Check with your Expert installer for more info.

  • Loop Choice

    Depending on land or water resources, there are a few different setups: horizontal loop, vertical loop or pond loop. You’ll pick a configuration option during your consultation.

  • Did You Know?

    Despite the name, geothermal heat pumps are dual function systems that provide both heating and cooling. Whichever system you want to have installed, it will utilize steady below-ground temperatures to efficiently both heat AND cool your home.

Ground-Source Heat Pumps vs. Water-Source Heat Pumps

Geothermal heat pumps can extract heat from the ambient temperature below ground or a nearby body of water. You’ll install either a ground-source or water-source heat pump based on which type will be more efficient.

Ground-Source Heat Pumps

At 5 feet below ground, the temperature remains consistent all year long. Ground-source heat pumps can use this to their advantage when heating or cooling your home. In heating mode, they pump ambient heat above ground, while cooling mode reverses the process to send heat underground for later use.

Water-Source Heat Pumps

Ponds, lakes and other sources of water can also offer consistent internal temperatures. Water-source heat pumps are particularly useful for cooling, as long as the body of water is at least 1/2-3/4th of an acre as well as 8 feet deep.

Our Geothermal Installation Process

We start by identifying any existing underground utilities to make sure breaking ground doesn’t impact anything. Pipes are then placed underground in a U-shaped pattern. Once the pipes are in place, any open spots can be fixed with grass seed or sod.

After that, we will install any remaining internal components of the system. A geothermal HVAC system is similar to what you’d expect from traditional heating or central AC installation. We’ll replace the old unit before hooking your new system up to existing ductwork. Before you know it, you’re enjoying energy-efficient heating and cooling!

Each geothermal installation project has its own schedule, so consult Donelson Air Service Experts for a better idea on how much time is required to finish the process.

Plan for Annual Maintenance

Once your new geothermal system is installed, you can operate it like most other types of HVAC systems. Just the same, you should schedule routine preventive maintenance to keep your geothermal system in better shape.

Geothermal heating and cooling can be as dependable as central forced-air systems, but with even greater energy efficiency. Ensure the most savings by staying up to date on maintenance.
