Geothermal Heating and You: What You Need to Know, Now

Introduction by Alix Penning
Presentation by Terry Proffer, CGD

Terry Proffer is an AEE-certified GeoExchange Designer (CGD) and geologist in Colorado. He is currently a ClimateMaster-certified installation instructor and holds many certifications through the IGSHPA, NATE, and more.

The best kept secret in HVAC is… geoexchange.  It’s understandable that you may not be aware of its existence, even though the technology has been around for quite a while now. If you're wondering how geothermal heating works vs traditional water source heating; if you need to calculate efficiencies for a residential GSHP retrofit; or if you just want to know if a GSHP) is the best choice for you, we have good news:

You’re in the right place.

Terry Proffer understands geoexchange heating and cooling better than just about anyone, so when Cold Craft needed information we could depend on for a difficult installation, we went to him.

In Terry’s powerpoint presentation you’ll learn the basics of geothermal heating and ground source heat pumps (GSHP) as well as how to apply geoexchange heating in residential and commercial settings.

This will cover just about everything you need to know—from what a heat pump is, to typical equipment and systems, to how to calculate residential and commercial loads for your design.
