FAQ's for Geothermal Installation

How does geothermal heating and cooling work?

Geothermal heat pumps can do all sorts of things—from heating and cooling homes to warming swimming pools. These systems transfer heat by pumping water or a refrigerant (a special type of fluid) through pipes just below the Earth's surface, where the temperature is a constant 50 to 60°F.

During the winter, the water or refrigerant absorbs warmth from the Earth, and the pump brings this heat to the building above. In the summer, some heat pumps can run in reverse and help cool buildings.

What is a geothermal heat pump?

Heat pumps provide winter heating by extracting heat from a source and transferring it into a building. Heat can be extracted from any source, no matter how cold, but a warmer source allows higher efficiency. A ground source heat pump uses the top layer of the earth's crust as a source of heat, thus taking advantage of its seasonally moderated temperature.

In the summer, the process can be reversed so the heat pump extracts heat from the building and transfers it to the ground. Transferring heat to a cooler space takes less energy, so the cooling efficiency of the heat pump gains benefits from the lower ground temperature.

Ground source heat pumps employ a heat exchanger in contact with the ground or groundwater to extract or dissipate heat. This component accounts for anywhere from a fifth to half of the total system cost and would be the most cumbersome part to repair or replace. Correctly sizing this component is necessary to assure long-term performance: the energy efficiency of the system improves with roughly 4% for every degree Celsius that is won through correct sizing, and the underground temperature balance must be maintained through proper design of the whole system. Incorrect design can result in the system freezing after a number of years or very inefficient system performance; thus accurate system design is critical to a successful system.

How deep are geothermal ground loops buried?

In Iowa, geothermal ground loops are buried below the frost line typically about 6-10 feet deep.

How much money can geothermal systems save?

A geothermal system can typically save 25-50% versus traditional heating sources.

Great service right from Jackie answering my call to Rory the technician! My appointment was from 2 to 4 but, Rory was here 2 hours early and that was very appropriate considering it was 83 degrees in my house! Rory explained the situation and what was needed for a fix! Very professional and personable!! Highly recommended

Wow! phenomenal customer service from Jackie on the phone, Lee, and the install professionals! I'm so glad I heard about this place. Had a new AC unit and furnace install. I called on a Monday and Tuesday they came out and quoted a great honest price. 2 weeks later they show up on time and work extremely hard and efficiently. I have already started recommending this company!

Lee Rose is a genius with a boiler and I have used his expertise for 16 years or more. He was the third repair guy I tried. It’s super hard to find someone to work on a residential boiler, let alone someone who can actually fix it! He has provided us with beyond excellent service through the years. He always responds quickly when I need something. Thanks for being a company I can count on, Lee!

Des Moines Comfort has been servicing my equipment for years. The maintenance package was a smart decision. They come out twice a year. I had an appointment yesterday, Jeff was early and I wasn’t home yet. I told him how to get in, he even took the dog out!!
Thanks!

Des Moines Comfort is a great company!! Their technicians are very professional and knowledgeable. They replaced an AC coil for us and it works great! They showed up exactly when they said they’d be here and even sent notice when they were in route. The technician even put up with our 2 little kids bugging him and answered all their little questions. Highly recommend DSM Comfort!

I can’t say enough about the Des Moines comfort team. They were professional, responsive, and caring since the first call. They sent a worker out first thing in the morning with a picture of who would be arriving and when. They did great work and left the work area very clean. I would highly recommend them for all HVAC needs.
