“Geothermal” comes from the Greek words geo (earth) and therme (heat). So, geothermal means earth heat.
“Geo-exchange” is a term coined to describe geothermal heating and cooling technology for homes and commercial buildings. It refers to the exchange of heat in the ground.
Geothermal heating and cooling systems tap into huge deposits of energy right in your own back yard.
The earth absorbs 47% of the sun’s rays in the form of thermal energy, more than 500 times what we can use for heating our homes.
During the heating season, a geothermal system has the ability to remove the sun’s stored energy from the earth at an efficiency around 400%.
The basic geothermal technology has been around for more than 50 years, and many homeowners and businesses have been enjoying its benefits for well over 20 years.
There are more than 1,000,000 geothermal installations in the United States today. Each year, U.S. homeowners install approximately 50,000 more geothermal systems.
A geothermal system is not only a cheaper way to heat & cool your home, but it also means extra savings on repairs, maintenance, hot water bills.
Across the country, schools using geothermal right now are saving an estimated $25,000,000 in energy costs which can be used instead for better educational equipment and more teachers.
The U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has said that geothermal heating & cooling systems are “the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean, and cost-effective space conditioning systems available today.”
Geothermal systems require less maintenance and provide higher levels of comfort year-round than a conventional heating and cooling system.
The Geothermal System burns no fossil fuel to produce heat, therefore it will not pollute the air. It also produces NO carbon monoxide.
The only external energy needed for the Geothermal System is the small amount of electricity needed to operate the ground loop pump, fan, and compressor.
A geo-exchange system will provide $4-$5 worth of heating and cooling for every dollar of electricity used.
Most geothermal installations are eligible for a 30% Federal tax credit!
Should all of the nation’s schools convert to geothermal, the EPA has estimated that we could reduce oil imports by 61 million barrels annually.
Geothermal cost savings can be increased by geothermal energy incentives, available from federal, state, local, and utility sources.
Owners of a geothermal system not only enjoy lower utility bills and greater year-round comfort, but they also have peace of mind of knowing they’re being environmentally responsible.
Geothermal systems can be installed anywhere in the world, unlike other renewable energy sources limited to certain regions.
Geothermal Systems have the lowest life-cycle cost of any heating and cooling system – as low as $1 a day for a typical 2,000 sq. ft. home.
My experience with Geo-Hydro Supply over the past few years has been excellent.
Being new in the geothermal industry, the customer support has been wonderful from your people.
I had excellent service with my phone orders with pick up and delivery experiences.
And I have really come to appreciate your online ordering service. Thanks for all your service.

I've been having problems with my geothermal install and when I contacted Mr. Beachy with
Geo Hydro Supply he was extremely nice and informative. I feel as though geothermals are the way to go as
long as you have qualified people who actually know what they're installing. But with people like Mr. Beachy
you can always double check your installers.
Got a chance to go there, very beautiful country, very nice people.
Ordered 2 items, showed up faster than I thought.
