What is included in this package?
This package was designed with the do-it-yourself person in mind. They include everything needed to install a geothermal closed loop horizontal ground system. The only thing you have to do is dig the trenches for the piping to be laid in. Everything in the package is as follows:
- All necessary Poly-Ethylene piping
- Insulated Header/Manifold where all piping is gathered together
- QT Flow Center water pump
- Hosekit to connect Header/Manifold to QT Flow Center and QT Flow Center to Heat Pump
- McQuay Geothermal Packaged Vertical Heat Pump
After the piping has been laid in the trenches, they collect at the Header/Manifold. The connect with a compression fitting so all you have to do is tighten the fitting to seal the system up. From there the Hosekit includes all necessary adapters to connect the Header/Manifold to the QT Flow Center. The QT Flow Center is a patented non-pressurized water pump. This allows for low maintenance and easy access for adding fluids to the system when necessary. It also has a self-purging system to keep optimal conditions for the highest efficiency possible. From there the Hosekit connects the QT Flow Center to the McQuay geothermal heat pump.
What is a GeoThermal Heatpump?
Because underground temperatures do not change and remain relatively constant year-round, a geothermal system, which consists of an indoor unit and a buried earth loop, capitalizes on these constant temperatures.
The winter, fluid circulating through the system’s earth loop absorbs stored heat and carries it indoors. The indoor unit compresses the heat to a higher temperature and distributes it throughout the building. In the summer, the system reverses, pulling heat from the building, carrying through the earth loop and depositing it in the cooler earth.
Why are geothermal heat pumps more efficient than air source heat heat pumps?
The geothermal system cycles water from a well, pond, lake or river, or water piped through underground plastic tubing, to warm or cool the heat pump’s refrigerant. Liquid such as water or an antifreeze solution is a much better heat transfer medium than air. Overall, the liquid medium for heat transfer is about 30% more efficient than air.
Which type of Geothermal Unit is this?
Horizontal Energy Systems (Closed Loop) also utilize the Earth’s plentiful and renewable thermal characteristics. Like the Vertical Energy systems, Horizontal Energy Systems circulate water or an antifreeze solution through a closed loop network of sealed and pressurized plastic pipe that is buried in the ground. Instead of inserting the plastic pipe into vertical wells the pipe is laid into horizontal trenches that are trenched at a typical depth of 4 to 6 feet and to a length of 75 to 400 feet per ton of air conditioning.
Satisfied Geothermal Customer
Gotta tell ya! This little machine (Mcquay geothermal heat pump) is everything you advertised it as, but is more. How so? My contractor had never seen one of these. They put it together, had a small electrical problem (no, not something your people would have expected) and your tech support was all over it.
The pump had 2000 sq ft at temp (72) from 97 degrees at 99 percent hum (to 60 percent). in less than 24 hours. Quiet, smooth, the well pumps amaze everyone who sees them, had hot water (without the water heater running) in less than 24 hours.
We are talking to the kids. They are spending 4 grand on propane and 3500 on electricity to heat and cool their house, you know, old folks don’t know squat, and are not modern enough to provide council. Guess what, I’ll show them the power bill and let them figure it out for themselves.
People ask me "how long will it take to payback the investment?" The answer? I don’t care, where else can you earn $150.00 a month on a $20,000 investment from a CD or saving account?
I am very happy I found you guys. Shopping on the web is always a crap-shoot but you are a solid vendor. Thank You.
Best Regards and we wish you good fortune,

Just wanted to let you know that the filter rack worked perfectly. My geothermal system is heating my house and the temperature last night was below 0 degrees. My house is over 3000 sq ft.and compared with oil I save at least $450 even though my electric bill for the month of December was $150 over what I paid last year, and it is less than the cost of heating with wood without all the mess and work. Needless to say I am very happy with my system. At some point, I will need to add some way to heat hot water (we are still using the old oil boiler until the tank is empty) and a small propane furnace to help the geothermal on the coldest days. I am thinking of and on demand hot water system but I would be interested in any suggestions that you might have.
Thanks for sticking with me after the sale.

|Installed a 4 ton geothermal kit from you and it works great! Talk about quiet! Wow! You can barely hear it run and its located right under our livingroom floor! Don’t need to turn the TV volume up anymore when the heat comes on! My friend and I did the install and only needed someone to help with the trenching. Dug the trench, laid the pipe and buried it in one day! It was a big job but well worth the effort! Thanks guys!|
