Vertical Geothermal Heating and Cooling Loop
When Vertical Geothermal Energy Loops are Installed
The Vertical Geothermal Loop system is used with the installation of a Geothermal Heat Pump system. This type of loop is the most energy efficient and space saving closed loop option used today. Hoffmann Brothers Heating & Cooling perform Vertical Loops installation every week, with this being the most popular type of loop system installed in the St Louis area. Vertical loops are typical for existing homes or businesses that replace their old heating and cooling system with a Geothermal Heat Pump. It is also popular for homes & businesses that are located in more of an urban area, like St Louis, Missouri, with not a lot of land for digging. Vertical geothermal loops are also used when the land around the home or business is too rocky or limited soil is available for trenching.
For a better understanding of vertical geothermal loops, please see the below depiction.

Installing Vertical Loops with Geothermal Heat Pumps
Since the vertical geothermal loops are dug vertically, less space is required for the loop systems to be installed. There are many factors that are considered when designing the loop fields such as the total heating and cooling requirements, the amount of space that is available, and drilling conditions. 
To install a vertical geothermal loop, Hoffmann Brothers will bore holes into the ground. Each installation is unique to the job but generally one bore hole handles one or more tons of total heating and cooling capacity. Holes are spaced about 15 feet apart to minimize the effects of the neighboring loops. These holes are typically 150-300 feet deep.  Long, U-shaped loops of pipe are then inserted into the holes. The vertical loop hole is then backfilled or grouted, and the pipes are connected to headers in a trench leading back to the building. The piping carries fluid in a closed system to and from the geothermal unit inside the home or business.
Vertical geothermal loops may be more expensive to install, but require less piping than horizontal loops because the earth, the deeper you go, is cooler in summer and warmer in winter. This vertical system takes advantage of more consistent ground temperatures deep in the earth.
