Because a geothermal system uses the earth as its heat source, the only energy required is electricity to run the pump, compressor and fan. So its carbon footprint is very low and could be zero depending on the source of electricity.

What Our Customers Are Saying…
Our installation was somewhat unique since we have radiant heat and I wanted to incorporate the existing propane boiler into the new Geothermal System as a back-up. Lake Country Geothermal really researched this application and offered a system that provides heat, AC and hot water plus back-up for a very reasonable cost. The installation took longer than estimated but in the end we have what exceeds mfg specs for performance. I would recommend you consider Lake Country Geothermal very seriously.
