What Is a Geothermal System?

You might know that the ground always has heat, even on the coldest winter days. A geothermal heat pump makes use of this heat to warm up your home. Instead of relying on natural gas to produce heat, you can use a more eco-friendly option. Geothermal systems are somewhat similar to air-source heat pumps in that they transfer heat. They pull heat from out of the ground instead of the air, though. These heat pumps move ground heat into homes to warm them up. What about when it’s hot out? A geothermal system works in reverse. It takes hot air from your home and puts it in the ground to cool your indoor spaces.

Benefits of Geothermal Systems

Having a geothermal heat pump installed on your property comes with some great benefits. Some of the top advantages include the following.

Energy Efficiency

Geothermal heat pumps are known for being incredibly energy-efficient. They use less energy than air-source heat pumps. They use even less energy compared to traditional heating and cooling systems, like furnaces and central air conditioners.

Heating and Cooling in One System

A geothermal system heats and cools your home. Instead of having separate systems, you can let one system handle your home’s HVAC needs. This means you don’t have to worry about having two systems maintained and repaired over the years.

Cost-Effective Heating and Cooling

Geothermal heat pumps do cost more to install. But you can look forward to having lower energy bills for years. Since geothermal systems use ground heat, you don’t have to worry about fluctuating gas or oil costs. Unlike air-source heat pumps, you also don’t need to worry about the outdoor temperature affecting your system’s ability to heat your home.


Geothermal heat pumps use a renewable source of energy. The ground won’t run out of heat, so you’ll always have plenty to heat your home. Natural gas and other fossil fuels are non-renewable sources of energy.

Geothermal Installation in Central Indiana

What can you expect when you have a geothermal heat pump installed? These are the main steps involved in this process.

  • Install Ground Loop: Geothermal systems are made up of underground pipes that form a loop and a heat pump unit. Ground loops can be installed vertically or horizontally, depending on how much space you have and other factors. Our
    experts can determine which type of ground loop is more suitable for your home. Vertical ground loops require digging deeper into the ground, while horizontal ground loops require more space. These pipes circulate fluid that draws heat
    from the ground in winter or deposits it in the ground during summer.
  • Install Heat Pump: Geothermal systems use a heat pump to bring heated or cooled air into your home. If you have a traditional furnace and central air conditioning system, our team will remove those and install a heat pump and air
  • Install Ductwork (if needed): Heated and cooled air from your geothermal system moves through your home via ducts. If you have ductwork already, then you should be all set. If you don’t have adequate ductwork or if yours is worn, we
    can install or replace it. 

Dependable Geothermal Repair Services

Geothermal systems offer a lot of good benefits and a high amount of reliability. But they can still develop problems over time. At Muegge, we can inspect and repair your geothermal heat pump.

What can go wrong with these heat pumps? They can end up with faulty or damaged parts, like a worn blower fan motor. They can also have refrigerant leaks, condensate drain clogs, gasket leaks, or problems with ground loop pressure.

No matter what’s going on with your geothermal heat pump, we can help. Our experts can get your system back up and running for reliable and efficient heating and cooling.

Federal Tax Credits for Geothermal Systems

Did you know that you might qualify for federal tax credits if you have a geothermal heat pump installed? The federal government offers these under certain conditions to help offset the higher cost of having a geothermal system installed, offering a credit equal to 30% of your total installation costs. The government introduced these tax credits to
encourage more homeowners to invest in energy-efficient heating and cooling for their

Our Satisfied Customers

My ancient AC went out about a week ago I called around to get a few quotes and I am still waiting to get them. I requested a 2nd opion on Muegge Plumbing’s website on 05/23/2018 around 7pm. I received a call from Amy at 8am the following day. By 5pm on 5/24/2018 I had a quote from Zach and the job scheduled for the next day. Today I have a new AC unit installed and working. Every one was very efficient and friendly over the phone and worked to find a solution that worked best. Thank you all so much!
