Geothermal Installation

We hear a lot about GOING GREEN these days. What does GOING GREEN mean to you? Does it mean only reducing our carbon footprint in order to protect our planet and resources for future generations or could it be more. What if GOING GREEN also meant KEEPING GREEN as in dollars in your pocket? What if Brad Malley Well Drilling could help you reduce your carbon emissions by up to 70% while at the same time saving you up to 70% on your heating and cooling costs? If this sounds too good to be true it’s not. This is being accomplished all over the world by installing a (GSHP) ground source heat pump connected to a Ground Loop or Open Loop system that uses the earth’s energy as a heat source in the winter or a heat sink in the summer. Visit a geothermal consortium to learn more and find other helpful links.

Brad Malley and a number of his employees have been enjoying the cost savings and the many other benefits associated with a ground source heat pump installation. With today’s volatile market and the unpredictable costs of fossil fuels we can’t think of a better investment than a (GSHP) installation. With a properly designed installation you can expect to see an instant savings with a 3 to 7 year pay off. After the pay off you have the potential of pocketing up to 70% of your past heating and cooling expenses. If you can find a better investment please let us know. Starting January 1, 2009 the federal government is offering a 30% tax credit for the installation of a residential (GHP) Geothermal Heat Pump. All commercial and private buildings are eligible for a 10% grant in lieu of tax credit for the total cost of installing geothermal systems. Be sure to check your state and local government for additional incentives. Some electric suppliers also offer a reduced service rate for a geothermal installation. Visit for federal and state incentives.

Brad Malley Well Drilling has accredited (IGSHPA) International Ground Source Heat Pump Association installers as well as certified pipe fusion specialists on staff to assist your engineering firm or your (HVAC) Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning contractor to properly install your (GSHP) system. Brad Malley Well Drilling has the equipment and knowledge to assist in all geothermal applications including residential, commercial, industrial and institutional installations. We have the capability to assist in the installation of OPEN and CLOSED LOOP systems ranging from the smallest to largest application. See examples of residential loops below.

Often used when adequate land surface is available. Depending on the geothermal system needs and space available, pipes are placed in trenches that range in lengths from 100 to 400 feet.

The ideal choice for a geothermal heat pump when available land surface is limited. Well drilling equipment is used to bore small-diameter holes ranging from 150 to 400 feet deep. Some large scale applications can require deeper bore holes.

Pipe loops are placed on the bottom of the body of water in order to capture the geothermal energy. Size and depth of the pond will have to be considered.

By drilling a new well or utilizing an existing well your Ground Source Heat Pump uses the earths energy stored in the groundwater. The groundwater is pumped through the heat pump where heat is extracted in the winter or rejected in the summer, then disposed of in an appropriate manner. Considering that groundwater stays at a relatively constant temperature year-round, it is an excellent heat source/heat sink.

Another form of an open loop system where groundwater is extracted from the bottom of your well, circulated through your heat pump's heat exchanger, and returned to the top of the water column in the same well.
