GeoComfort GeoThermal Systems

Rather than creating heat like conventional systems, Geothermal systems move heat that already exists.

Ground source heat pumps use heat energy stored in the earth to heat and cool homes, schools and businesses. The heat pump circulates water through pipes buried in the ground. During the winter the circulating water collects heat from the earth and transports it into the building. During the summer, the system cools the building by reversing itself; collecting heat from the building and transporting it back into the earth. In addition to heating and cooling, ground source heat pumps also create free hot water in the summer and deliver substantial hot water savings in the winter.

Ned Enterprises is an International Ground Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA) Certified Installer. We have installed over 200 ground source heat pump systems over the last 25 years.

There are 4 main types of ground loop systems:

These systems are not sealed. They are open at either end to obtain the liquid heat exchange medium (water) from an existing well or surface body, and to discharge it externally as well. Open loops require adequate water for the needs of the system

These systems concist of horizontal, vertical or pond/lake loops. The heat pump and loop form a sealed, pressurized system through which the liquid heat exchange medium is circulated.

Horizontal and Vertical Closed-Loop Systems
These systems are laid horizontally in trenches or vertically in boreholes. Both are placed in areas adjacent to the home or building they serve.

Pond or Lake Loops
The loops are laid underneath the pond or lake.

Benefits of installation and retro-fitting GeoThermal systems into your home:

  • Savings - Geothermal systems can cut your home or business heating and cooling costs by 50% and provide hot water for free or at a substantial savings.
  • Durability - Ground source heat pumps last much longer than other systems because they are protected from the weather. The heat pump unit is located indoors and the loop is under ground.
  • Low Maintenance - Geothermal systems have fewer mechanical components, making them more reliable and less prone to failure. The ground loop has an expected life of over 50 years, with no maintenance required.
  • Peacefully Quiet - There is no noisy outdoor unit. The unit operates quietly indoors.
  • Conservation - Geothermal systems work with the environment by using the relatively constant temperature of the earth to provide heating, cooling and hot water.
  • Flexibility - Geothermal systems can be installed in new buildings as well as retrofitted for an existing home.
  • Health - These systems make indoor air cleaner. They keep the air free of outdoor pollutants, pollens and other allergens.
  • Unmatched Comfort
  • Bonus Hot Water
  • Longer Life Cycle - Installation of a Geothermal System is a one-time deal. Once it is in - it's good to go! It's a system that is built to last and will make you money. Adding a Geothermal system to your home creates tremendous value.


Montana Tax Credits:

Montana is offering a tax credit of up to $500 or $1,000 per couple for energy improvements to new or existing homes.

  • For existing homes the tax credit is 25% of the cost of the eligible improvements.
  • For new homes the credit is 25% of the cost for certain high efficiency furnaces, boilers, air conditioners, heat pumps, ventilation systems, water heating and the "extra" cost to go beyond the code efficiency levels required for windows, doors and insulation. Tax Credit

Federal Tax Credits:

30% of cost for certain alternative energy systems - unlimited amount
