Any geothermal equipment meeting Energy Star requirements at the time of installation is eligible for the federal tax credit.
  • The geothermal system must be installed in the United States in a home owned by the taxpayer.
      - Primary residency is not required for eligibility.
  • The credit is equal to 30% of the total system cost
      - Inclusive of equipment, labor, piping, etc
  • Can be used to offset Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) tax
  • Can be used in more than one year
  • Can be combined with other energy efficiency upgrade credits
  • Can be combined with solar and wind tax credits
  • There is no cap to the tax credit.
      - There is no limit to the number of times the credit can be claimed.
      If the taxpayer has more than one home, the credit can be claimed for each home where geothermal equipment is installed

Solar energy disbursement
In the purest sense, geothermal systems use solar energy. The earth absorbs an amazing 48% of the sun's energy, leaving a fairly constant underground temperature between 45° and 70° F.
A water solution flows through pipes buried in the ground (ground loop system) absorbing heat from the earth in the winter and moving it to the geothermal system inside the house. Once there, the heat is condensed and transferred to the air that is circulated throughout the home, providing warmth when needed.
In the summer, the process is reversed, absorbing heat from the air inside the home, similar to how a refrigerator extracts heat from food to make it cool, and transfers that heat into the ground through the same loop system.
The science behind the magic
The heat exchanger, also known as the loop system, captures the stored solar energy in the ground and delivers it back to the geothermal system in the house. There are 4 different types of loops.
Your loop system is the heart of geothermal technology. Regardless of the option you select, it will deliver over up to 500% efficient comfort and savings for many years into the future. Your local geothermal dealer will help you select the proper loop system based on a site survey and by conducting a detailed energy analysis of your home. Installing a geothermal loop system is like getting a 70% discount on energy for the life of your home.

Heating and cooling cycles
During the heating cycle, the fluid circulates through the loop extracting heat from the ground. The heat energy is transferred to the geothermal unit. The unit compresses the extracted heat to a high temperature and delivers it to your home through a normal duct system or radiant heat system.
Many entities beyond the federal government are now providing incentives for purchasers of geothermal heating and cooling equipment. Numerous states, local municipalities and utilities also now offer rebates, tax incentives or low interest loans to support your installation.
