There’s good reason why TERRASource Geothermal systems are industry-best. One-hundred percent of our attention is focused on ensuring our geothermal systems continuously out-perform and out-class other vendors who simply “dabble” in our industry. At TERRASource, we live and breath geothermal systems – it’s all we do! Here are some of the top competitive advantages TERRASource offers you.
TERRASource offers a pre-engineered DIY (Do-It-Yourself) geothermal system package that provides year-round efficient heating and cooling for your home or office. Our system is color coded and labeled to eliminate any guess work. Best thing is, you can do it yourself.
While we have the ability to provide installation in most areas, we also provide the option for you to do it yourself! If you are an installer, please inquire below so we can see if you qualify to be added to our directory of local installers.
TERRASource offers a unique ground loop system that you will only find with Geothermal DIY or a TERRASource Distributor. Our ground loops come pre-filled with antifreeze and equipped with quick connect fittings which enables the consumer to bury the loops according to the specifications provided (i.e. trench length, width and spacing). Each loop has quick-connect fittings and manual shut off valves that slide onto manifold ports. Just add water, and the antifreeze will mix throughout the loop field while it purges the air from the system.The manifold is equipped with an 8’ 110 volt power cord and a 25’ colored micro plug control wire that plugs directly into the heat pump. We provide everything you need except for the digging and duct work, pre wired for a “plug and play” installation. There no special tools to purchase for the installation of a TERRASource geothermal system.
TERRASource Geothermal DIY kits are designed to work with what is known as a closed horizontal loop configuration (learn about loop configurations). A closed loop configuration can be a horizontally straight which consists of 600ft to 750ft runs, a slinky loop which consists of runs of 125 to 135ft or a pond loop which is normally the most efficient and least costly way to go (but keep in mind if a pond loop is something you are considering the pond must be at least 10ft deep and the same size as the dwelling you are trying to heat and cool). If a vertical configuration is your only option TERRASource can supply you with the equipment needed.
Once your TERRASource geothermal system has been installed, in most cases’ you can see the savings immediately. For example . if your average heating and cooling cost are $7000.00 annually you could save up too an estimated $4200.00 dollars per year. This doesn’t include the estimated 30% saved annually on your domestic water heating or the $400 dollar rebate offered by the Energy star program, nor any additional renewable energy incentives offered by the federal government.
With the rising cost of propane the payback is definitely worth the upfront cost and by choosing the TERRASource Geothermal DIY kit you will eliminate the cost of installation. Its basic “plug-n-play” plumbing and wiring connections makes a TERRASource DIY Kit an obvious affordable choice for those looking to champion their own geothermal needs.

Geothermal energy is a type of renewable energy that encourages conservation of natural resources.
Based on recent prices, ground-source heat pumps currently have lower operational costs than any other conventional heating source almost everywhere in the world. In fact, a geothermal heat pump is amazingly 450% efficient.
Natural gas is the only fuel with competitive operational costs, but only in a handful of countries where it is exceptionally cheap, or where electricity is exceptionally expensive.
In general, a homeowner may save anywhere from 30% to 70% annually in heating costs, and 20% to 50% in cooling costs by switching from an ordinary system to a TERRASource DIY Geothermal ground-source system.
The lifespan of a TERRASource system is longer than conventional heating and cooling systems, too. With routine maintenance, a TERRASource system can last well over 50 years or more.
The investment in a TERRASource system above conventional oil, propane or electric systems may be returned in energy savings in 2–10 years for US residential systems. The payback period for large commercial systems in the US is 1-5 years, even when compared to natural gas. Most large and/or luxury homes require commercial-level geothermal systems.
TERRASource ground source systems are recognized as one of the most efficient heating and cooling systems on the market. So efficient in fact that Federal and State offer incentives of up to $10,000 to encourage and promote the usage of geothermal systems.
In some states, utility providers offer special, lower winter rates for geothermal customers, compounding even more savings. When you make a commitment to purchase a TERRASource DIY Geothermal system our Financial Experts will advise you on all the preparation of documents needed for submission to your local and Federal government so you promptly receive your rebates and get the most out of your investment.
