Geothermal Horizontal Directional Boring

Want more information?

The horizontal directional bore is a relatively new procedure for installing geothermal loop systems.  Developed originally for installing utilities in areas where excavating wasn’t an option, geothermal horizontal directional boring has been adapted for all installations.  With these specialized machines, loop piping for geothermal systems can be inserted into a yard beneath existing utilities and other obstacles without disturbing the surface of the ground.  Only a confined area around the machine must be excavated to connect the loop circuits after they’re installed.   

This type of geothermal directional drilling is relatively equal in cost to that of vertical, and very little restoration of the property is needed afterwards.  The geothermal directional boring, however, requires a large footprint as the loop piping is usually around 200 ft. in length.
