A geothermal system transfers heat to or from the ground without leaving a nasty carbon footprint. Why are our geothermal systems better than other geothermal systems on the market? From the beginning, our design goal has been to produce a geothermal system that not only provides the highest efficiency possible, but does it at an affordable price. 1.Expensive duct work with inherent heat loss. 2.Expensive system with a long payback period. 3.Total dependency on a single refrigeration system, if a part goes you will freeze. After two years of research and development R&B came up with the Mach IV system. 1.Mach IV uses small copper tubing in place of ducts decreasing heat loss and cuts the installation time and cost. 2.The installed cost of a Mach IV system is substantially less than a conventional GSHP (Ground Source Heat Pump) reducing payback period. Technical Details Prototypes 1. 2.
