Geothermal Loop Fields – No Drill Rigs
Geothermal heating and cooling is the most energy efficient way to both heat and cool your home on the planet. Homeowners who want to take advantage of this awesome energy source under their feet have to accept some level of disruption in their landscaping… or do they?
NexGen Energy located in Central Minnesota has a different method for installing geothermal loops, which are simply the underground pipe that exchanges the heat with the ground. Homeowners can now have geothermal loops installed right from their basement rather than tearing up their yard with boreholes and trenches. According to Jackson Motzko, Design Engineer NexGen Energy, “This is the cleanest installation on the market and it is also more cost effective”.
Traditionally loop fields average $2200/ton in MN, and there are usually other fees, such as cleanup. The NexGen Energy loop fields average $1700 per ton.
If you are a homeowner that would like to install a geothermal system using the NexGen Energy loop installation system or a contractor and you would like to learn how you can start installing this new style of loop field for your customers, please contact NexGen through http://nexgenenergy.net/
Please note that the NexGen Process is exclusive to Minnesota at this point in time so most homeowners hoping to have this type of install will need to stick to the traditional loop field installations.
