McQuay Effinity Geothermal Heat Pump
McQuay International Enfinity series geothermal heat pumps are revolutionary in design. With their Copeland Scroll Compressor, PSC Blower motor (available with ECM Blower as upgrade), Desuperheater (optional), Cupronickel or Copper Coil, and Patented Sound Barrier these units are incredible for such a low price. Even compared to top of the line models from competitors these units achieve outstanding efficiency ratings, rated at 22.9 EER and 4.4 COP with an open loop setup on a 5 ton unit!
With today’s heating and cooling costs continually rising, consumers are looking at every option available to reduce their heating and cooling bills. As you know, the most efficient option available to them is geothermal heat pumps. Now, with the government incentives which include a 30% tax credit with no maximum cap for geothermal systems, and the direct savings from reduced heating and cooling cost, consumers can see a pay-off in as little as 5-7 years.
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.
We created packages from 1.5 ton - 5 ton for horizontal ground loop installations, vertical well ground loop installations, and open loop installations. Our packages include all necessary materials to install a residential geothermal heat pump system:
All required Polyethylene Piping is included based on the size and type of system
Insulated PVC manifolds are included with compression fittings to eliminate the hassle of fusion
Self-purging, maintenance free QT Flow Center for circulating fluid through loop field
All necessary fittings and adapters

After the piping has been laid in the trenches, they connect at the Header/Manifold. They 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 Heat Pump?
Because underground temperatures do not change and remain relatively constant year-round, a geothermal heat pump system, which consists of an indoor unit and a buried earth loop, capitalizes on these constant temperatures. In 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 it through the earth loop and depositing it in the cooler earth.
Why are Geothermal Heat Pumps more efficient than air-source heat pumps?
A geothermal heat pump 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 Heat Pump 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 anti-freeze 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.
