On systems requiring a more consolidated excavation footprint, return pipe tails are rolled out evenly between spaced coils to maximum geothermal performance. Frequently it is more practical to excavate an open pit instead of widely spaced individual trenches—since either method can be designed to achieve the same result!

It might not look like much, but pictured is an example of a modest "trade secret" employed by Northern GroundSource to optimize geothermal performance: A "close header" is applied at GHEX end loops to balance loop system flow more evenly across header at the basin of this advanced hybrid pond application.

One of the most versatile and advanced ColdClimate GSHP designs delivers 100% hydronic heating and cooling throughout your home or commercial building. It is capable of providing both radiant floor and forced air heating—along with forced air cooling—within one fully integrated and highly efficient system.

Specialty trade partner, McKeever Well Drilling, Schroeder, MN, applies spring-loaded spreader clips to U-bend and grout tremie pipes as they are fed down a 320' hole in Lake Superior rock. McKeever developed its own advanced grout formula and mixing process to maximize GHEX performance while minimizing drilling cost.
