A Buried Treasure.

Geothermal heat pumps are the most efficient options on the market. These heating and cooling systems use the earth’s temperature to heat and cool your home by transferring energy instead of burning fuel, giving them a low operating cost and making them environmentally friendly. At W.E. Brown, we install, repair and replace geothermal systems in Charlottesville and surrounding areas. And, you can trust our advice; we’ve been doing it well for decades.

As your local Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, we deliver the most advanced and efficient geothermal heating and cooling solutions for your home or business. W.E.

Understanding Geothermal Heating And Cooling.

  • During the winter months, a system of buried pipes absorbs heat and stores it in the fluid that moves through the network of pipes.
  • The heat stored in the fluid is extracted and concentrated by a heat pump inside the building and used to heat the air.
  • The warm air produced through the system is distributed to interior rooms to provide energy-efficient geothermal heating during cold central Virginia winters.
  • Geothermal cooling works by allowing heat to dissipate during its journey through the pipes and then using the cooled water to absorb heat from the interior air.
  • The interior heat pump supplements the heat removal processes that begin in the network of geothermal pipes and provides added cooling for hot summer months.
  • These systems offer greater longevity and increased efficiency. By upgrading to a geothermal system, you can lower your average utility bills, reduce your carbon footprint, and enjoy superior comfort all year.
