Kratz Services, Inc. Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing has a extensive knowledge and experience in the design and implementation of geothermal heating and cooling systems.  These systems tap the constant temperature of the earth in order to provide heating, cooling and hot water.

Geothermal heat pumps only use electricity to move heat (not to produce it). Your home stays comfortable all year round while trimming your energy bill up to 80%. And by taking advantage of new federal tax credits, you’ll also save 30% - on your TOTAL installation. See answers to our most frequently asked questions below or visit our friends at Bosch and use their geothermal savings calculator to figure out your projected savings.



A cleaner and more energy efficient choice.

"How do geothermal systems work?"

Like any type of heat pump, a geothermal simply moves heat energy from one place to another. Your refrigerator works using the same scientific principle. Using a unique earth-friendly “refrigeration”, the geothermal heat pump transfers energy to the home by removing heat energy stored in the earth and groundwater.

Geothermal heat pumps also take advantage of the mild ground temperature for extremely high efficiency cooling. Most systems also include a hot water generator, which diverts a portion of the supplied heat to the domestic water heater. This provides a substantial portion of a family’s hot water needs at a very low cost. Overall, geothermal technology offers the highest cooling and heating efficiencies of any system available.

Do geothermal systems BOTH heat and cool?"

One of the things that makes a heat pump so versatile is its abitlity to be a heating and cooling system in one. You can change from one mode to another with a simple flick of a switch on your indoor thermostat. Plus, a geothermal heat pump can assist in heating hot water year-round.

A geothermal unit typically supplies four to five kilowatts of heat for every killawatt used. Three to four of these kilowatts of heat come directly from the earth itself, and are clean, free and reusable.
