Geothermal Heat Pumps
For the Michigan homeowner who wants to reduce their carbon footprint and spend less on utilities, geothermal systems are a terrific choice.
A geothermal heat pump takes advantage of the relatively constant temperature a few feet below the earth’s surface. Unlike a conventional gas furnace that burns fuel to generate heat, geothermal systems use a heat exchanger to move heat from one space to another.
During the summer months, your geothermal heat pump extracts heat from your Freeland home—similar to an air conditioner—and transfers it to the ground for cooling. In the winter, the geothermal heat pump takes natural heat from the ground and transfers it to your home for heating.

The Advantage of Geothermal
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognizes geothermal heat pumps as the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly system you can use to heat and cool your home.
A geothermal system costs more upfront than a conventional furnace and air conditioner, but you can recoup the additional costs through energy savings within five to seven years. Additionally, federal tax credits are available to offset over 25 percent of the installation fees.
Installing a geothermal heat pump is a particularly great option if you are building a new home or planning to upgrade your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Our friendly professionals at Answer Heating & Cooling will work with you to determine if geothermal is the right choice for your home.
Other advantages of geothermal include:
- They balance indoor humidity levels.
- They operate whisper-quiet—no noisy fans.
- They last longer than conventional HVAC equipment.
- There is no exposed outdoor equipment.
- They do not expel odors, flames, or dangerous carbon monoxide (CO) fumes.

Geothermal Heat Pump Installation and Replacement
Geothermal systems circulate a treated environmentally friendly liquid through a closed underground loop made of durable plastic to transfer heat. Our team will assess your property to determine the best piping system.
On a small lot, we will create a vertical looping system. If you live on a large lot, we can spread out the piping to create a horizontal loop at a shallower depth.
Do you live near a pond? We can install the looping at the bottom of a pond or lake to create a water-source heat pump.
Once installed underground or in the water, the looping system will last over 50 years. A well-maintained geothermal heat pump can operate efficiently for 20 to 30 years.
Not sure if a geothermal system fits in your budget? At Answer Heating & Cooling, we offer flexible financing options to make it convenient for you to create your dream home.
Geothermal Heat Pump Repairs
These systems are incredibly durable and require little maintenance. If you ever detect a problem, call us right away.
