Geothermal Heat Pumps
Are you ready to go green—and save money at the same time?
A geothermal heat pump allows you to draw on the warm temperature right below the earth’s surface. These environmentally friendly systems produce practically no greenhouse emissions, are easy to operate, and extremely capable of handling our New Jersey weather.
Our North American Technician Excellence (NATE) certified specialists understand geothermal systems and how to install them on lots of all sizes. While they cost more upfront over a conventional heating and cooling system, you'll make up the difference through lower energy bills.
Plus, some high-efficiency models are eligible for state and federal tax incentives to help offset the installation costs.

How Does Geothermal Work?
A few feet below the planet’s surface, the temperatures remain at a constant 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Geothermal systems circulate an earth-friendly antifreeze solution through a closed underground loop.
On a chilly day, the earth makes the liquid heat up. A ground heat exchanger extracts the heat from the liquid and transfers it to an indoor heat pump, which dispenses the heat in your Egg Harbor Township home.
During the summer, the heat pump works like an air conditioner—removing heat and humidity from your home and cycling conditioned air back through your ductwork for you to enjoy.
Heat pumps do not burn fuel. Instead, they use electricity to transfer heat from one area to another. The US Department of Energy (DOE) rates geothermal energy as among the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly heating and cooling systems available.
Do Heat Pumps Work in New Jersey?
The beauty of a heat pump is how it easily integrates with your existing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment. A common strategy in cold-weather states is to pair your heat pump and gas furnace together to create a “dual-fuel system.”
Use your heat pump on the more moderate winter days, and fire up the furnace on those super cold afternoons. On most days, you’ll get by comfortably with the heat pump. A dual-fuel system will keep your energy costs down throughout the winter.
Our team can help you with any federal tax incentives and rebates that you earn with a geothermal system. Going green is a great way to save money.
Geothermal Installation and Replacement
Geothermal systems last a long time—a well-maintained heat pump will run efficiently for 25 years, if not more, while the underground loop will last over 50 years. Once we install the system, you can expect it to stay intact for decades.
Our team at Comfort Now will first evaluate your property to determine whether you need a horizontal loop or a vertical loop to get the most value out of your investment. Lot size, topography, soil conditions—all these factors come into play with a geothermal system.

More often than not, these systems will operate for decades with very few issues. If there ever is a problem with the underground loop, we will run a gentle dye through the system that pinpoints any leaks.
Comfort Now understands the stress of dealing with a broken HVAC system. We offer 24/7 emergency repair services and always provide you with an accurate, upfront quote before we begin work.
During a routine maintenance visit, our licensed professionals will check the antifreeze solution running through your system to ensure it’s at the proper level. We’ll also check the loop for any possible blockage issues.
Our specialists will know if the heat exchange and blower are running smoothly, free of dirt and debris. Additionally, we can clean and seal your air ducts to protect your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ).
Preventative maintenance keeps your heating and cooling system running at optimal efficiency. Schedule annual tune-ups and enjoy some peace of mind.
