GREAT FOR YOUR BUDGET AND THE ENVIRONMENT
The geothermal system is the most eco friendly and budget friendly system available. Geothermal systems are green technology and are recognized by the EPA as the most energy efficient heating and cooling system available. With a geothermal system you can condition your home with peace of mind. You can eliminate the inherent dangers involved with using fossil fuels like explosion or carbon monoxide poisoning. Geothermal systems use free energy stored in the earth. Reduction in carbon footprint and reduction of utility payments allow you to have an increased peace of mind.
Crawford Electric Coop, Cuivre River Electric Coop, Three Rivers Electric Coop, Intercounty Electric Coop and most rural coops provide a rebate program for the new or replacement installation of a geothermal system of usually $750 per ton. Ameren Missouri’s rebate program is $2000 per unit.
The Federal Government is offering a 30% tax credit on the installation of a geothermal system and additional requirements of the system, for example the ductwork. The credit is available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Your tax professional can provide information of how it would affect your individual situation. We would be happy to answer any questions. The tax credit will expire December 31, 2016.
The geothermal system has a variety of applications. The closed loop vertical bore holes; closed loop trenches and the open loop are the most common applications. The closed loop system with its series of boreholes, works well within city/town limits as well as rural areas. The open loop system works in conjunction with your water well supply. One water well is required to support household usage and open loop geothermal usage. An inspection of the site location would determine which application is best. Many times more than one application is available to choose from.

Horizontal Loop: This is the most common loop used when adequate land area is available. Loop installers use excavation equipment to dig trenches approximately 6-8 feet deep. Trench lengths range from 100 to 300 feet per ton, depending on the loop design and application.
Vertical Loop: This loop is used mainly when land area is limited and also in retrofit applications of existing homes. A drilling rig is used to bore holes at a depth of 150 to 300 feet per ton. A U-shaped coil of high-density pipe is inserted into the borehole. The holes are then backfilled with a sealing solution.
Pond Loop: A pond loop is an option if a large body of water is available within approximately 200 feet of the home. A 1/2 acre, 10 to 12 foot deep body of water is usually adequate to support the average home. The system uses coils of pipe typically 300 to 500 feet in length. The coils are placed in and anchored at the bottom of the body of water.
Open Loop: This system can be installed if an abundant supply of high quality well water is available. A typical home will require 4 to 8 gallons of water per minute. A proper discharge area such as a river, drainage ditch, stream, pond or lake must be present. Check for local restrictions before selecting a specific discharge method.Horizontal Loop: This is the most common loop used when adequate land area is available.
