Geothermal Systems – Geothermal Heat Pump Systems – Geothermal Heating Systems – Geothermal Federal Tax Credits
We specialize in the installation of energy saving geothermal heat pump systems. We provide homeowners with high efficiency and Energy Star rated geothermal systems that qualify for the Federal Tax Credit in Bucks and Montgomery Counties in Pennsylvania.
Geothermal systems are great at cooling your home, which can save you quite a lot on your energy bills this summer compared to traditional air conditioning system. During the summer, the ground where the underground loops run is cooler than the air, which allows you to cool the liquid needed to air condition your home. If you have any questions about how a geothermal system would work in your home, give us a call today!
While relatively new to many homeowners, geothermal heat pump systems have been in use in the United States for decades and millions of geothermal systems have been installed in residential and commercial applications across the globe. Geothermal systems provide a tried and true technology that is widely considered the most energy efficient heating and air conditioning system available. These ultra efficient "green" heating and air conditioning systems not only save energy and reduce carbon emissions – they also increase comfort.
In fact, over 98% of homeowners who convert to a geothermal system report a greater level of comfort while enjoying reductions in heating and cooling costs of up to 60–70%!
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency states:
"Geo exchange systems are the most energy–efficient, environmentally clean and cost–effective space conditioning system available today"
What is a geothermal heat pump? A geothermal heat pump is an electrically–powered device that uses the natural heat storage ability of the earth and/or the earth’s groundwater to heat and cool your home
How does a geothermal heat pump work? That’s a common question that we receive from homeowners. The simple answer is that a geothermal heat pump uses the earth’s relatively constant temperature to heat and cool your home.
During the winter, a geothermal heat pump uses underground piping, known as an "earth loop" to extract heat from the ground. As the system pulls heat from the loop it distributes it through a conventional duct system as warm air. The same heat energy can also be used for a radiant floor system or domestic hot water heating.
Essentially the opposite occurs, the geothermal heat pump absorbs heat from the air in your home and transfers it to water circulating in the earth loop where it is absorbed by the earth. This provides cool, dehumidified and comfortable air throughout your home.

Energy and cost savings of geothermal heat pumps will vary by region and type of conventional system they’re compared with. But the energy cost of geothermal versus conventional HVAC systems will always be lower — and the geothermal system will always be greener.

What is the environmental impact of installing a geothermal heat pump in my home? According to data supplied by the U.S. Department of Energy, a typical 3 ton residential geothermal heat pump system produces an average of about one pound less carbon dioxide (CO2) per hour of use than a conventional system. For perspective, this would have an environmental equivalent of reducing emissions from one automobile over that same time period by nearly 60% or planting 12 acres or trees annually!

We only use the best products! A core philosophy at Carney is that there are 3 major critical components to a high quality and long lasting geothermal system, quality products, quality installation and quality design. When evaluating products that we recommend to homeowners, we are very thorough. Often, a product will be installed at our facility or in one of our homes long before we offer it to a customer. Why? We want to be sure that we’re recommending only the best to you and your family.
The difference is in the installation! Having a new geothermal heating system installed is much different than nearly every purchase that a homeowner will make for their home. The parts are shipped to us from our distributors, loaded onto our trucks and then assembled in your home. You will often hear a Carney employee say "The most important day in a geothermal heat pump’s life is its first day." This is because it is critical that thorough and precise installation procedures are followed. Even the highest quality products must be assembled and installed properly in order to maximize energy savings, enhance system performance and ensure years of trouble free comfort.
How do we know what size geothermal heat pump will work? The third major critical component to a high quality and long lasting geothermal system is the first step, system design – what size geothermal system is needed? Our friendly and experienced Comfort Specialists evaluate your home and perform engineering calculations to determine the proper sized geothermal system for your home. Factors include the age of the home, insulation levels, window quantity and quality, size of the home, orientation of the home, ceiling height and many, many more. It is not uncommon for two homes that appear nearly identical in the same neighborhood to have different heating and cooling requirements, we see it frequently. That’s why we never "guess or assume" what size geothermal system is right for your home. Our goal is to provide an energy efficient geothermal heat pump system that maximizes your comfort and minimizes your energy usage. That’s why each geothermal heat pump system that we install is custom designed for you and your home.
Do you know who’s in your home? Carney employees must pass criminal background checks and random substance abuse tests. This helps ensure that the people that we send to your home are ones that you will be comfortable having there. We use floor saver "booties" and drop cloths to protect your home.
