Looping Systems

Alternate Energys installs our own loop systems including horizontal, slinky loops and pond loops. We work with well contractors and directional borers to provide installation of vertical and directional bored systems, however, loop pressure testing, connections and all other components are still completed by our installers. We have worked with loop contractors early on and learned quickly to have a job done right is to do it yourself. Our installers are certified and one call to our office with a concern is all it takes to have qualified staff member at your doorstep.

                                     Wisconsin's Greenest Building 
Not only does Wisconsin have an amazing green building by LEED standards, its noted as the Greenest Building in the World - The Aldo Leopold Legacy Center in Baraboo, Wisconsin...that's right - WISCONSIN!
Three one story buildings totalling 11,900 square feet, approximately 9000 of total conditioned square feet are heat and cooled by geothermal radiant systems. Conditioned air from a earth tube ventilation system helps the geothermal system be even more efficient. Project manager Greeg Tucek stated  "...the geo system is so much more efficient at what it does heating and cooling space..." compared to conventioanl systems of the past. Additionally, the project uses solar power and passive solar to contribute to its high efficiencies and LEED certification. To read more, request information from our office at (920) 532-4000.
