At B&R Heating & Cooling, we have been installing geothermal heating and cooling systems in homes throughout the Collingwood, Ontario area for many years. We realize that when it comes to finding a geothermal contractor, you have many different options. For this reason, we make ourselves stand out with our technical proficiency, commitment to paying attention to detail, and our ability to help our clients understand which of our solutions is best for their home.

Compared with other types of systems, geothermal heating and cooling systems are extremely energy efficient and are often a beneficial option for rural properties. These systems work by using the energy directly from the earth to cool or heat a home. The efficiency of all geothermal systems is measured using a system of units known as coefficient of performance (COP).

In addition to being extremely efficient, geothermal heating and cooling systems do not rely on outdoor machinery, are quiet and comfortable, and provide a high return on investment. Additionally, these systems do not harm the surrounding landscape because they do not use tanks that can spill or leak.

Keep in mind that if you desire to use geothermal, a ‘ground loop’ will be required to be installed on your property. The loop that these systems use, which are typically made out of plastic and filled with an antifreeze solution, can be buried underground or submerged under water.

Above left to right: Brady oversees every job to ensure that the loop sizing, depth, fusion and pressure test requirements are met; Technician Tony demonstrates how to fuse the loop tubing. There are no mechanical joints in the tubing, heat fusion welds the pipe together at the same temperature at which it was manufactured. This makes for a homogenous loop that is essentially one piece; A Skilled excavator at work – B&R use Ferris excavators out of Singhampton, Ontario.

On the right, we see pliers which are used to hold the pipe and ensure proper penetration depth of the fusion joint – ie. to act as a stop.
