How Geothermal Systems Work
Geothermal systems are well suited for our Northern California climate, providing exceptional comfort all year. These innovative systems provide both a heating and cooling solution for your property. A geothermal system will save between 40 and 60 percent on heating and cooling energy costs.
Geothermal heat pumps transfer heat to and from the soil under your home or business, with a super-quiet pump. One big advantage of a geothermal system in Northern California is the absence of outdoor equipment.
These units are compact, and all the equipment fits inside a single cabinet. In heat mode, a geothermal system will produce heat at about 110 degrees. In cool mode, the system will provide air at roughly 55 degrees.

Our expert technicians use newer construction techniques that allow the underground piping to be installed with minimal disturbance to lawns and landscaping. At Brower Mechanical, we take great care to treat our clients as we would want to be treated and make the installation process effortless for homeowners.
Incentives Lower the Cost of a Geothermal System
Many utility companies offer substantial rebates and incentives for installing geothermal equipment. In addition, there is a federal tax credit for renewable energy installs, also known as the ITC, which is available for 30% of the qualified expenditures for a residential geothermal system. This tax credit was extended in August of 2022 with the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and will remain at 30% until 2032. In 2033, the ITC will drop to 26% and then decrease to 22% in 2034.
A tax credit differs from a tax writeoff and is more valuable. It is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in income taxes owed and can be rolled over into the next tax year. Now is a great time to install a geothermal heat pump system and take advantage of the federal geothermal Investment Tax Credit!
