The Dandelion Energy home geothermal system replaces your home’s existing air conditioning and heating equipment with a powerful heat pump and safe, underground pipes that move heat between the earth and your home.
In the winter, the ground loops move heat stored in the ground into your home. In the summer, the ground loops returns heat from your home to the ground.
In just 5 simple steps, we’ll upgrade your heating & cooling to a Dandelion Home Geothermal System.
“We paid nothing upfront and paid less our first year than we paid each year for oil.”
“The system has a great return on investment; it pays for itself. We’ve eliminated fuel oil costs, system maintenance costs, and oil smells. We also appreciate the bonus of the more cost-effective hot water.”
“We like checking the panel each day to see how much it cost to run the system.”
“The house has never been warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Our friends even commented on how much more comfortable our house has been since the air is distributed evenly.”
“What I love most about the system is that it is a steady heat. The house feels warmer. My parents even commented that the house feels warmer when they came for a visit.”
“The system is much quieter. We no longer need to turn up the TV in the living room when the furnace comes on.”
“We will never run out of oil again and we no longer needing to call around to get prices on oil delivery.”
“It is a pleasure to no longer worry about the oil company coming on time. This was especially important this past winter, when many people experienced missed deliveries and ran out of oil.”
“Now I have an 100% clean energy home. I produce my own power (with solar) and heat my home with high-efficiency geothermal.”
“We are very glad we don’t need to worry about carbon monoxide poisoning anymore.”
“Our favorite part is knowing that we are doing something good for the environment.”
“Our geothermal system came with a humidifier and better air filters than we had before.”
“We love the central humidification. Not having to fill humidifiers every couple of days is great.”
A geothermal heating and cooling system is basically made up of two parts: a geothermal heat pump that sits inside the home, and one or two underground pipes called “ground loops” that are installed in the homeowner’s yard.
Heat pumps do exactly what their name suggests: they use electricity to pump heat from one place to another. A refrigerator is an everyday example. To keep your food and drinks cold, your fridge uses electricity to pump heat from the inside of the refrigerator to the outside air. A geothermal heat pump works similarly: in the summer, when you want your home nice and cool, it moves heat from inside your home into the earth; in the winter, when you want your home warm and toasty, the pump moves heat from the earth into your home.
The ground loops are U-shaped plastic pipes, inserted 300 to 500 feet into the ground, that are used to exchange heat between your house and the earth. In the wintertime, water circulating through the ground loops absorbs heat from the earth, which is used to warm your home, and in the summertime your home is cooled by transferring the heat from your home into the earth.
Dandelion’s geothermal heating and cooling system replaces your existing heating, cooling and hot water equipment. The system includes a heat pump (roughly the same size as a furnace), water heater and smart thermostat which are each installed inside your home. The system also includes ground loops, or U-shaped plastic pipes, that are inserted a few hundred feet below the ground outside of your home.
The complete system is installed in two to three days. First the ground loops are installed in the yard by drilling one or two vertical holes just a few inches wide to depths of a few hundred feet. Ground loops are U-shaped plastic pipes that are used to exchange heat between your house and the earth. Dandelion has designed a clean drilling technology, so there will be minimal disruption to the yard. Finally, the heat pump, water heater and smart thermostat are installed inside of your home by a technician in just a few hours.

For qualified homeowners, Dandelion offers a home geothermal heating and cooling system for $20,000. Dandelion is partnering with a leading financing company to enable homeowners to switch to home geothermal energy with zero upfront costs and low monthly payments.
Geothermal heating and cooling is the cleanest and most efficient heating and cooling technology on the market. Because the system taps into a renewable resource, the earth, your heating and cooling source will never run out and monthly bills are predictable. An average homeowner who uses oil or propane to heat the home spends $2,500 a year on heating fuels, which averages to almost $210/month. With Dandelion's zero-down installation, homeowners can expect to pay less.
Dandelion’s home geothermal heating and cooling system simply requires changing the air filter in your home every 6 to 12 months. You’ll also be able to monitor the performance of your Dandelion system online.
The typical lifespan of a geothermal heat pump is 25 years. Closed-loop piping typically lasts for at least 50 years.
The Dandelion system is available to qualified homeowners in 11 counties in New York state: Dutchess, Ulster, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Albany, Schenectady, Schoharie, Saratoga, Montgomery and Fulton.
