Geothermal Installation & Repair Allentown PA

Work With The Best Allentown PA Geothermal Installation & Repair Company

Geothermal heat pumps have been a reliable heating source for nearly a century. Where other heating systems use outside air as their exchange medium, geothermal heat pumps use the earth’s relatively constant temperature to keep your home comfortable all year.

Jack Lehr Heating, Cooling & Electric has provided Greater Lehigh Valley area home and business owners with geothermal installation, replacement, repair, and maintenance for all types of geothermal heating and cooling systems for over four decades. You can rely on our certified technicians to finish the job right the first time.

Benefits of Geothermal Heat Pumps

Eco-friendly and cost-effective geothermal heat pumps:

  • Reduce yearly energy costs by up to 50% 
  • Outlast traditional HVAC equipment with an average 30-year lifespan
  • Operate quietly and efficiently
  • Don’t produce high carbon emissions
  • Provide a return on investment within five to 10 years

Unlike traditional heating equipment like boilers and furnaces, geothermal heating systems don’t require fuel to operate. Instead, they pull energy from temperature-consistent underground soil and water sources to heat and cool homes. And because geothermal systems don’t have temperature fluctuations, you never need to worry about feeling uncomfortably hot or cold.

Types of Geothermal Heat Pumps

There are four basic types of ground loop systems: ClimateMaster logo

  • Horizontal: These are ideal for residential installation when there’s sufficient land available and vertical installation is difficult.
  • Vertical: These are an excellent option for commercial buildings because they don’t require a lot of space to be installed. They can be installed under the parking lot. This is often the most effective residential installation in the Greater Lehigh Valley.
  • Pond/lake: If there’s an adequate body of water, water-source heat pumps are another option and can be cost-effective. However, the suitability must be carefully evaluated.
  • Open-loop: This type of system uses well or surface water as the heat exchange fluid that circulates directly through the geothermal heat pump. We always return the water to the same depth. Water quality is critical in this type of installation.

Contact the experts at Jack Lehr Heating, Cooling & Electric to see which geothermal heat pump option is right for your home or commercial building.

Geothermal Heat Pump Services We Offer

Geothermal heat pumps are clean, effective, and energy-efficient heating and cooling solutions. Our professional geothermal heat pump services include:

  • Geothermal heat pump repairs: A heat pump’s underground piping can go decades without problems. However, the unit and its thermostat sometimes require repairs for leaks, damaged fan blades, malfunctioning valves, motor issues, and scale buildup. Our technicians are trained to repair any part of your heat pump system.
  • Geothermal heat pump installations & replacements: When repair isn’t possible — or if you’re investing in a new system — the Jack Lehr team will skillfully install your unit in accordance with your existing system, new heat pump, and other considerations.
  • Geothermal heat pump maintenance: Like any other HVAC system, geothermal heat pumps require routine maintenance to operate at their best. Our annual preventative maintenance ensures your heat pump is in good condition, has no leaks, and all working parts are undamaged and functional.

Learn More About Geothermal Services

How does geothermal heating work?

Geothermal heat pumps operate nearly the exact way as standard heat pumps, except rather than using the fluctuating air temperatures as the heat exchange medium, geothermal heat pumps use the constant temperature of the earth through the installation of vertical boreholes in the earth’s surface.

Geothermal heating and cooling uses the natural temperature from deep below the ground to draw heat out of your home’s air and cool your home in the summer. It then does the reverse in winter, drawing heat from the ground and pumping warmer air into your home.

How efficient is a geothermal heat pump?

According to the Department of Energy, geothermal heat pumps can reach 300–600% efficiencies even on the coldest winter nights, compared to 175250% for air-source heat pumps on cool days. This can dramatically reduce your monthly energy costs. Geothermal heat pumps with a properly designed earth loop need little or no auxiliary heating.

How much money is saved with a geothermal system?

Use this geothermal savings calculator from ClimateMaster to determine how much you can save.

Do geothermal heat pumps work in cold climates?

Yes! Despite extreme temperatures throughout the year, the ground 20 feet below the earth’s surface remains relatively stable in temperature, making it an extremely reliable heat exchange medium. However, your geothermal heat pump will also be installed with backup heating to ensure your home never lacks comfort.

How long do geothermal systems last?

Geothermal heat pumps can last an average of 30 years, compared to 14 years for a traditional heat pump and 15 years for a furnace or central air conditioner.

How much do geothermal systems cost?

Growth in the geothermal heating and cooling market averages 12% annually as the demand continues to rise for highly efficient HVAC systems with sustainable energy.

Geothermal system pricing is more competitive than it was a decade ago because there are many more manufacturers selling more efficient heating and cooling systems, and there are also more experienced installers available for installation services.

Contact Jack Lehr or call our technicians to learn more about our pricing and financing options.

How long does it take to install a geothermal heating system?

Most installations take a few weeks due to the digging required, but it’s worth it for 30+ years of reliable, efficient heating and cooling.

Can you put a geothermal system in an existing home?

Absolutely. Depending on where the loops need to be installed, the installation process may be inconvenient for a family living on the property. There are pros and cons to geothermal heat pump installation; however, we feel the benefits greatly outweigh the temporary costs.
