Geothermal Heat Pumps

WaterFurnace Geothermal Systems

Riddell Contracting has been installing, repairing and maintaining WaterFurnace Geothermal units for over 30 years. Our technicians receive hands on practical training directly from the manufacturers.

WaterFurnace geothermal systems are among the most efficient, energy saving, environmentally conscious heat pumps you can purchase. They are a natural heat pump that will give you years of reliable, safe home comfort at a low cost.

Lower Operating Cost

A WaterFurnace geothermal system operates more efficiently than ordinary heating and air conditioning systems because it can deliver an astounding five units of energy for every one unit of electrical energy used. By combining stored earth energy with safe electric power, many WaterFurnace owners realize savings up to 70% for heating, cooling, and hot water.

Enhanced Comfort

Our geothermal systems provide precise distribution of comfortable air all year long, eliminating hot spots and cold spots. During heating, you’ll experience warm air without the hot blasts associated with ordinary gas furnaces, or the cooler air of an air source heat pump. Additionally, when cooling, our geothermal sytems deliver cool, dehumidified air.


Unlike ordinary air conditioners or heat pumps, there’s no noisy outdoor unit to disturb your outside environment or your neighbors. WaterFurnace geothermal systems are designed and constructed for quiet operation.


Unlike air conditioners and heat pumps, geothermal systems are installed indoors, so they are not subject to wear and tear caused by rain, snow, ice, debris, extreme temperatures or vandalism. Geothermal systems have proven to be very reliable and require less maintenance.

Environmentally Friendly

According to the Department of Energy and the EPA, geothermal systems are the most environmentally friendly way to heat and cool your home. Our systems emit no carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide or other greenhouse gasses, which are considered to be major contributors to environmental air pollution. They are truly a natural, green heat pump.

Geothermal Heat Pumps Installation

Geothermal heat pumps have one of the most vitally important installations. It all starts with proper loop design and what is best for your system. The loop must be sized properly to absorb as much thermal energy as possible.

To the trained professional, heat pump installation is relatively simple. However other considerations need to be evaluated when installing a geothermal unit electrical, water hook-ups, location, and duct size all need to be considered. Thermal fusion of underground piping, trenching, and drilling are best left to ground source loop professionals at Riddell Contracting.

Geothermal Heat Pump Maintenance

“I must tell you of all the things we put into our house, there are two things that are outstanding. First, I wanted to use blown-in insulation in our walls. The second thing, and by far the most outstanding thing about our new home, is the WaterFurnace geothermal system. This is our fifth home and it is the most comfortable heating system we have ever had. If we were to ever build a new home again, I can guarantee you that it would have a WaterFurnace system.”
–Tom & Gloria C.

The heat pump maintenance performed by Riddell Contracting prevents bigger heat pump repairs later. Because the unit heats and cools it is critical to have the system inspected before each season.

Hire only these certified ground source heat pump professionals to check refrigerant levels, inspect all wiring and contactors for wear, measure amp draw on motors, inspect pumps, measure loop pressures and clean coil and condensate lines.

Riddell Contracting has certified technicians with over thirty years of experience to perform maintenance and give recommendations on any repairs or planned replacements if necessary.
