Geothermal Well Drilling in Carmel, NY

Save big on energy with geothermal well drilling from Boyd Artesian Well Co in Carmel, New York. Installing a geothermal system in a typical home is equal, in greenhouse gas reduction, to planting an acre of trees or taking two cars off the road.


In the simplest of terms, it operates very much like a refrigerator. When you open the refrigerator door to get your milk, there is cold air inside. If you are standing at the refrigerator with bare feet you can feel the warm air on your feet. The refrigerator separates the cool and hot air. In the simplest terms, geothermal systems separate temperature from the ground to provide heating or cooling. Geothermal means relating to the heat of the earth. These systems are highly efficient and use a small amount of energy to move a large amount of free energy. It provides you with the greatest opportunity to reduce energy cost. The energy is free, clean, environmentally friendly, and renewable.


In the heating mode, fluid is circulated through the pipes where heat energy is transferred from the ground to the fluid. Then the heat is transferred to the geothermal unit in the home. Heat is transferred in the home through duct system or a radiant heat system. Heating efficiencies are 50% to 70% higher than other systems.

Cooling Mode

In the cooling or air conditioning mode, the system is reversed. Heat is removed from the home and transferred to the loop fluid. As the fluid travels through the loop, the earth cools it. The earth serves as a place to deposit the heat. Cooling efficiencies are 2%0 to 40% higher than available air conditioners.

Closed-Loop Systems

Drilling is required for the closed loop system. The wells are spaced a minimum of 15 feet apart. After the boreholes are drilled, double pipe with u-bend is installed in each hole, typically made of high-density polyethylene tubing (HDPE). The hole is grouted to provide good conductivity and to seal the hole. Vertical pipes are connected to a header system and run horizontally into the building. Installation of closed loop systems is more costly although they have little-to-no maintenance and provide a more thermally stable environment.

Open Loop & Standing Column Systems

Drilling is required for both the open- and standing-column system, although there is less drilling because you are looking at only one to two boreholes. These systems are less costly to install but can require maintenance and a pumping system. A place for discharge or “bleed” must be available (ex. second well, pond, or sewer). Water quality is important and more pumping power is required.
