Hudson Valley Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Dandelion Energy offers New York homeowners state of the art geothermal heating and cooling at an affordable price.

What is Dandelion Geothermal?

The Dandelion Energy home geothermal system replaces your home’s existing air conditioning and heating equipment with a powerful geothermal heat pump and a ground loop system that moves 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.

Hudson Valley FAQs

“Upstate New York gets cold in the winter! Can a geothermal heat pump really keep my home warm?”

Absolutely. Geothermal heat pumps work well in cold winter climates. Just a few feet below the frost line, the ground maintains a constant temperature of about 55 degrees year round — even when the air outside is below freezing. Underground pipes, called ground loops, contain heat-conducting liquid that circulates below ground, absorbs the ground’s energy, and feeds it into the geothermal heat pump. Inside the heat pump, the heat energy is concentrated, converted from water to air, and sent to the duct system for distribution. How warm it gets depends on where you set your thermostat.

“I live in an old home. Is geothermal still an option for me?”

Yes! Dandelion specializes in retrofit geothermal installations and has served many older homes in the Hudson Valley and beyond. We do recommend, however, that homeowners in particularly “leaky” homes seal and well-insulate their home prior to installation. This step is not necessary for installing a geothermal system but is generally a good idea to consider when replacing any HVAC equipment in older homes.

“I live in the suburbs. Do you need acres of land to install geothermal?”

Dandelion installs vertical loop geothermal systems, meaning that depth is more important than surface area. How much piping is needed depends on the size of the house. Much like an air conditioning unit, the geothermal system must be sized correctly to ensure that it will do a sufficient job heating and cooling the space inside the home. Either way, there’s plenty of room to spread out below the earth’s surface!
