Aqua Tech Water Specialties is proud to be the number one provider and servicer of Geothermal Wells on the DelMarVa Peninsula! We have a vast knowledge in the design, build, and implementation process of Open Loop and Closed Loop Geothermal Wells. Did you know that with Geothermal Systems you can actually heat and cool your home with dirt, not oil? That’s right, you can! Geothermal Systems use the dirt beneath your home (which stays at a constant 55 degrees year round) to heat up and cool down your home which is 4 times as efficient, costs less to operate, and can be one of the smartest investments you can make as a homeowner.

Geothermal heating and cooling systems can be divided into two broad classes: open-loop systems and closed-loop systems. An open-loop system withdraws ground water from a well, passes it through a heat exchange system, and discharges the temperature-altered water either back to the ground via a return well or to surface water. A closed-loop system circulates a heat transfer fluid (usually water with an antifreeze additive) through a loop or multiple loops of piping installed below ground or within a surface water body. A closed-loop system does not involve the withdrawal of ground water.

What Geothermal Does For You
What is Geothermal?

Geothermal systems use the thermal energy stored in the upper portion of the Earth’s crust to heat or cool a building, replacing conventional heating and air-conditioning systems. The heat 20 or 30 feet down in the ground stays at a constant 50-60 degrees (usually 55) year round. Geothermal harnesses that energy residing in the earth to pull water from a well and run it through a series of loops which in return either heats or cools your home, as shown in the picture above.

Why is Geothermal better than tradition oil systems?

Geothermal systems use the dirt to actually heat or cool your home! Which also means no more oil, which means more environmental friendliness. The great thing about Aquatech Water Specialties Geothermal Systems is they can actually perform up to 400% better than traditional heating and cooling methods. This means less energy used which results in more money saved in the long run.

Are all Geothermal Systems the same?

No, all Geothermal Systems are not the same. Every installer has a different way of designing and implementing there system. Lucky for you though, Aquatech Water Specialties is the pioneers for Geothermal Systems on the DelMarVa Peninsula. We’ll design you a system thats guaranteed to perform and last a lifetime!

Is Geothermal right for me?

Whether you are a new homeowner or an existing homeowner Geothermal is always a good choice to look into! It is always recommended that you go with geothermal for new homes as it is easy to come in and drill all the necessary holes and do all necessary hookups before the home is built or and landscaping is laid, this minimizes cleanup and leaves virtually no presence that we were even there! If you are an existing homeowner it is still recommended that you go with Geothermal but there are some precautionary steps that have to be taken. A representative from Aquatech Water Specialties will come out, for free, and inspect your property to determine if Geothermal is right for your home. Sometimes restrictions such as property size, home size, or home location prevent us from drilling the system. But 9 times out of 10 there is no difficulty getting you a new Geothermal System installed in your home!

Sounds great! Where do I get more information?

If your ready to start your venture into the Geothermal world for your new home and/or business or if you just have more questions please contact us and we’ll be sure to get back to you as soon as possible!

Benefits To Geothermal
1. Cost

Geothermal systems offer a ridiculous “payback” margin post-installation. After your system is installed you’ll immediately start to notice declining electricity bills. Thats because Geothermal systems have a 400% efficiency rating compared to a 94% efficiency rating found in most gas furnaces. In most cases your power bills will drop up to 70%!!!

A lot of homeowners wonder what the “payback” period is for Geothermal installations. Well, to be honest, it varies by home and the area you live in. Thanks to the 30% Federal Tax Credit Break (good through 2016) for newly installed Geothermal Systems you’ll probably find your money back in your pocket in 3-8 years.

2. Sound Level

Geothermal Systems are notoriously quiet. There are no more A/C or Heating units outside your home since it’s all underground and under your house. The sound of the Geothermal System running is comparable to the sound of a refrigerator running.

3. Environmentally Friendly

Geothermal Systems will help you reduce your carbon footprint by up to 50% along with also being recognized as the most environmental friendly way to heat and cool a home.

4. Safe

Since there is no heat pump, there is no chance of carbon monoxide poisoning. Geothermal also provides some of the cleanest air available for your home and, when paired with high efficiency air cleaners, will produce healthy air for you and your family to breathe for years to come.

5. Life Cycle

Geothermal units are good for 15+ years while the pipes use to make the “loops” of the geothermal systems are good for 50+ years.

Federal Tax Credit
You can now get a 30% Federal Tax Credit (not deduction) on a new Geothermal System

The Tax Credit may be claimed for spending on “Qualified Geothermal Heat Pump Property” installed in connection with a new or existing dwelling unit located in the United States and used as a residence by the taxpayer.

“Qualified Geothermal Heat Pump Property” means: Uses the ground or ground water as a thermal energy source to heat the dwelling unit or as a thermal energy sink to cool the dwelling unit, and meets the requirements of the Energy Star program which are in effect at the time the equipment is installed.

Labor costs associated with the installation of the geothermal heat pump property and any associated materials (piping, wiring, ducts, etc) are included. The residence does not have to be the primary residence. The tax credit can be used to offset both regular income taxes and alternative minimum taxes. If the tax credit exceeds the income tax liability, the remaining balance can be carried forward into future years.


A homeowner spends $20,000 to install a new Geothermal Unit in his or her home.
$20,000 x 30% = $6000 which means the homeowner only spends $14,000 to install the Geothermal Unit in his or her home (minus local and state incentives.)

Where is your company located at?

Aquatech Water Specialties is located right in the heart of Lewes, Delaware.

What areas do you service?

Aquatech Water Specialties offers will drilling services to a good majority of the DelMarVa Peninsula.

What exactly is a well?

A well is a drilled hole that is bored deep down into the ground where there is fresh water just waiting to be pumped out. A type of casing that is made out of PVC pipe is forced down in to the ground to prevent the well from ever collapsing and to prevent sediments and other outside materials from getting into the well.

How long do wells usually last?

Well, to be honest, a well can literally last a lifetime or even more! Wells that have been drilled 60 to 70 years ago are still producing to this very day. The PVC casing used in drilling wells lasts indefinitely and will never rust out which will leave the wells drilled today producing water many decades from now.

Do I need a permit to drill a well?

Yes, Delaware’s Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control requires all residencies and businesses to have a permit before a well is drilled. But, not to worry, Aquatech Water Specialties will handle all of the paperwork for you on our customer’s behalf.

Is there anything I need to do before/after you drill the well?

Every well installation is different and it all depends on the state codes and laws that are established in your state. Most homeowners already have a local contractor that they use and we can work with them or, if need be, we can subtract which leaves you with little or nothing to do.

How much water can I expect from a well?

A well usually supplies more water than the customer would ever need, but there may be certain areas where water may be limited, drop a request for a free estimate from Aquatech and we’ll come out and tell you exactly what to expect at your location.

Will drilling a well mess up my lawn/yard?

If you are building a new home then then there will be little to no damage at all since no landscaping has been established on the property. We’ll come in, drill the well, and cleanup our tracks before any landscaping gets laid. On the other hand, if you already have a home built, we’ll come out and have to inspect the area to see where the best place is to place the well to which we will then tell you what steps are needed to preserve your beautiful yard as much as possible.

How long does it take to drill a well?

Simple residential and commercial wells will only take a few hours to drill and our hook up team will be back the next day to finish up. Larger wells such as agricultural wells may take a little bit longer, but will be complete in a timely manner. Please contact us for more information on how long it will take to drill your well.
