Geothermal Energy Solutions, Inc – one of the oldest design-build contractors in Illinois with extensive experience in Geothermal and Conventional HVAC and Energy Recovery.

Geothermal energy is the most efficient, cost-effective way to provide heating and air conditioning for single family homes, apartment buildings, commercial buildings, offices, industrial structures year-round. The latest generation of geothermal systems requires less maintenance than a conventional HVAC system and is highly cost-effective. This is a well-proven technology with over 30 years of active use that can provide reliable, long term heating and air-conditioning from a renewable, natural source: the heat from the ground.

Geothermal technology is cost effective alternative to conventional HVAC for new construction and retrofit.

The cost of a geothermal system should be understood as a combination of installation and operational expenses. The benefits derived from lower operational expenses when using a geothermal system far outweigh a traditional HVAC system’s only advantage: initial lower cost. When coupled with current tax incentives and various rebates available today for renewable energy, the payback period for the incremental cost of a geothermal system versus the cost of conventional system can be as low as 3 years. After this period, the system serves as a source of significant operational savings for the life of system operation, paying out dividends every month.

Geothermal Energy Solutions can help property owners and management companies reduce operational expenses by retrofitting existing systems with geothermal systems. The scope of the retrofit in most cases will not disrupt operations, nor will it require interior remodeling. The distribution ductwork and controls, in most cases, will remain intact, thus reducing interference with ongoing operations.

Geothermal Energy Solutions is approved ComEd Energy Efficiency Trade Ally, have the Illinois Commerce Energy Efficiency Installer Certification and the GAOI design and installer accreditation.

As an authorized dealer we provide our customers the benefit of a direct equipment pricing.

Environmental Benefits:

EPA found that geothermal heating and cooling (geothermal heat pumps) systems can reduce energy consumption — and corresponding emissions—by more than 40% compared to air source heat pumps and by over 70% compared to electric resistance heating with standard air-conditioning equipment.

Geothermal systems use the Earth’s energy storage capability to heat and cool buildings, and to provide hot water. The Earth is a huge energy storage device that absorbs 47% of the Sun’s energy – more than 500 times more energy than mankind needs every year – in the form of clean, renewable energy. Geothermal systems take this heat during the heating season at an efficiency approaching or exceeding 400%, and return it during the cooling season.
