Geothermal Heating & Air Conditioning Systems
Geothermal Heat Pumps &
All GeoExchange systems (also known as "geothermal" heat pump systems) use a refrigeration compressor to transfer renewable heat energy from the earth. In the summer, these systems reverse the cycle to transfer unwanted heat into the earth.
Efficient, Reliable Geothermal Systems
from Experienced Manufacturers
Arkansas Wind & Solar proudly offers EarthLinked® heat pump systems designed and manufactured by ECR Technologies to its residential and commercial customers. The system is mechanically simpler, has fewer moving parts, is quieter and is inherently 20-25% more efficient than water-based GeoExchange systems.
ECR has been in business since 1980 acting as a leader in the development and manufacturing of Direct GeoExchange heating and cooling system. They hold nine U.S. patents and nine international patents related to such innovation.
Flexibility and Efficiency
Our systems are designed to give you a variety of sizes to fit many new and retrofit projects. This allows Arkansas Wind & Solar to install the most efficient setup for your particular needs.
The design of our systems allows them to be in direct contact with the earth’s heat source for, simply put, the ultimate in efficiency and comfort. Our product line has the highest average coefficient of performance (COP) and Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) efficiency rating of any system tested by ARI. With this efficient system, consumers benefit from 35-65% greater energy savings.
Benefits of a Geothermal Heat Pump System
- Greatly reduced energy costs
- Reduced emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants
- Installation cost difference vs. a traditional heat pump is paid for in just three to five years of energy savings
- Quiet operation
- Low maintenance costs
- Suitable for warm or cold climates
- Able to heat and cool a typical 1,500sf home in a moderate climate year-round for $1 a day
- Can also handle a home’s hot water needs, given the right climate and environment
What to Expect with Your Geothermal Heat Pump Installation
There are few typical geothermal heat pump installations. Each one is different, due mainly to the terrain it is to be installed on.
With any installation, the first thing that must be done is to verify that the site is appropriate for a geothermal heat pump installation. Once this is done, and our customer has decided to move forward, our crew proceeds with the installation. After installation, we check your system to verify proper performance.
How much will my geothermal heat pump installation cost?
The cost of your system will depend on many factors, including the terrain your home sits on, and the size of your home or office. Please contact us to come visit your site, and we'll give you a free estimate.
