Agricultural Geothermal Energy

Your land does more than bear fruit. It provides a free, renewable source of energy that can generate savings in heating, cooling and hot water up to 70%.

Geothermal energy is a smart and effective solution for the reduction of global warming and environmental protection.

In the vast majority of cases, the horizontal ground loop is the best suited option for large spaces available in rural areas. since the piping system is not buried very deep into the ground, excavation is thereby simplified, and therefore less expensive.
 

More common in Europe and elsewhere in North America, geothermal energy in agriculture is proven and generates spectacular energy savings with a return on investment within a few years.

Lower your installation costs with a horizontal earth loop

The execution of an underground closed loop represents a large portion of the costs related to the installation of a geothermal system, but when one has a large estate, ideal for a horizontal loop, it is possible to considerably lower costs by performing your own excavation work and installation.

It is crucial to follow every step in the design of a loop to obtain the calculations required for maximum system performance. The supervision of a certified contractor is required.

Choosing geothermal

Building green is more than a trend. Building a home according to superior energy efficiency standards has become a concern for many homeowners.

Alain Brasseur, owner of a large family farm, living in the small ancestral home built on the land, has carefully planned the construction of the new home for his family. Since he intended to build his new residence according to ecological preservation criteria and maximum efficiency, Mr. Brasseur selected his materials, accessories and units in order to reach and even surpass Novoclimat requirements.

The owner was first interested in geothermal technology after reading various articles in magazines and specialized publications. A particular story about a large geothermal project on a poultry farm convinced him on the performance of geothermal systems and their relevance in agricultural areas. When it was time to choose the heating and cooling mode of their new home, he analyzed the various options on the market and geothermal soon appeared to him as the ideal option due to ecological features, substantial energy savings, simple project implementation and service life of the system. In short, a sensible investment for future generations.

Flexible, geothermal also allowed him to install both a forced air heating system and radiant floor in the basement and attached garage.

 

Installation Costs

The cost of installing a vertical type closed loop, the most common geothermal loop, requires expert drilling services and average costs are estimated at $15,000. Given the size of the land available near the new construction and the possibility of involving Mr. Brasseur in the installation of the loop, it quickly became obvious to opt for a horizontal slinky shaped loop costing a total $4,000, which represents savings of almost 75%.

 

Results

The whole installation process was easily executed. Just one glitch: a heavy rain fall delayed the excavation work. The trenches filled with water and they had to install pumps to remove excess water before laying down the pipe. But no one can predict or control Mother Nature's mood swings…

The Brasseur family are fully satisfied with the performance of their new geothermal system and said that they enjoyed remarkable comfort throughout the winter.

 

Energy Savings

Previous situation

  • Small and poorly insulated old house
  • Dual energy heating (electricity and oil)

Current situation

  • New house three times larger than the old one
  • Heating with geothermal system
  • Greater electricity demand in the barn with the addition of livestock and increase in use of equipment

Situation précédente

  • Maison ancienne de petite taille et mal isolée
  • Chauffage biénergie (électricité et mazout)

Situation actuelle

  • Maison neuve trois fois plus grande que l’ancienne
  • Chauffage avec système géothermique
  • Demande en électricité plus grande à l’étable avec ajout de bétail et augmentation de l’utilisation des équipements

After seven months of operation, Mr. Brasseur noticed a 20% saving on his electricity bill. It should be noted that the comparison with the previous situation requires some clarification, among others, the Brasseur family went from a dual energy home comfort system to a geothermal system. Also to be considered, the electricity consumption for the house and farm buildings is billed to a single account. It is therefore difficult to obtain an accurate comparison, but the energy saving is particularly interesting because in addition to lowering the electricity bill, geothermal technology has allowed complete elimination of oil consumption.
