The cost of a geothermal system varies significantly depending on many variables:

There are many advantages to geothermal systems.
Most geothermal systems require some drilling unless your property is large enough to dig in long trenches, or you live close to a body of water. See the Geothermal Systems. The depth of each bore hole is not important because the temperature of the ground is relatively the same at 6ft as it is at 200ft. The size of the geothermal system and the ground conditions at your property will determine how many feet of geothermal pipe you need to have installed.
Very hard rock such as granite tends to provide the best conductivity and therefore is very efficient in geothermal applications. However, softer rock like limestone or materials like sand and clay will work just as effectively but you may need a few more feet of geothermal pipe installed.
Yes. The cost associated with drilling different ground conditions varies. Each ground condition is drilled differently and each condition presents unique challenges. We will supply a quote for your specific location.
Air to air heat pumps use the outside air to heat your house. As the temperature of the outside air drops so does the efficiency of your heat pump. A ground source heat pump is much more efficient because the temperature of the ground or the ground water is constant year round.
