Did you know that Goold Wells & Pumps does more than water well drilling? We also do geothermal drilling for heating and cooling systems!
We use our drilling expertise and high-power equipment to drill into the earth, install piping underground, and hook it up to your home’s heating and cooling distribution system. The result is a geothermal system that provides you with energy efficiency, cost-saving benefits, and reliable, long-term performance.

How Geothermal Systems Work
Geothermal heat leverages the second law of thermodynamics: Heat will always spontaneously move from higher-temperature bodies to lower-temperature bodies. In other words, with a geothermal system, underground heat is moved around to either heat or cool your home.
The temperature underground stays around 55 degrees Fahrenheit no matter the season. So, we drill and install geothermal pipe systems that utilize this stable temperature to transfer heat. The underground pipes circulate a solution of water and antifreeze, which then meets with refrigerant. The liquid refrigerant vaporizes when it meets with the 55-degree fluid, and then it runs through a compressor which changes into a hot, gaseous state. Finally, this hot gas passes through your home’s heat exchanger and distribution system, where it either heats or cools your home.
Since a geothermal system doesn’t require heat to be created, it is highly efficient and super-clean. No wonder so many local homeowners are making the investment!
