Geothermal heating and cooling — see the savings

Whether you’re building a new home or looking to replace the heating and cooling system in your current home, a geothermal heat pump system is an environmentally friendly option that can save you up to 60% on your monthly utility bills with five times the efficiency of a conventional system.

Heating and Cooling from the Earth

A geothermal ground source heat pump uses the earth as a source of heating and cooling, resulting in higher efficiency and lower emissions. One unit supplies heating, central air and hot water for your entire home. Bell Brothers provides expert geothermal services throughout Des Moines and Central Iowa.

Install super-efficient and environmentally friendly geothermal heating and cooling

Geothermal heat pumps — also known as ground source heat pumps — use the Earth as a free source of heating and cooling. The temperature of the Earth just a few feet under the surface stays around 50 degrees all year. Geothermal systems use one or more loops of underground pipes to circulate liquid through the ground to absorb or release heat. Geothermal systems can be installed in new or existing homes with minimal disturbance to yard and landscaping.

Geothermal advantages:

  • Uses free, renewable energy from the earth
  • Precise temperature and humidity control
  • Cools 20% – 40% more efficiently than other cooling systems
  • Heats 50% – 70% more efficiently than other heating systems
  • Energy reductions help the system pay for itself in five to seven years
  • Doesn't burn fossil fuels, so there are no CO2 emissions
  • Helps reduce peak season electrical demands
  • Safe and clean, with no flames, fumes or flues
  • Quiet operation; no outdoor condensing unit required
  • Lowest life-cycle cost of all heating systems
  • Often qualifies for state and federal energy tax credits plus utility rebates. Currently 30% federal tax credit.

Another Satisfied Customer

"We built new construction of a large home with a split system geothermal. Higher end waterfurnace series 7 system with both passive and active (steam generator) humidifier, hrv etc. Gas line installation to fireplaces grills and other appliances. From installation and duct runs with Jake…sales and design with Haris, LJ..and after the sales service with John, Adnan.. these guys are the most professional, clean and attentive crew I have dealt with. They also service our medical offices and we are lifelong customers. We had some issues with the geothermal that was related to the well drilling not at all with Bell Brothers but they backed us up and helped make everything right. Very happy with the support and product they offer."
