Geothermal Soil Testing
When deciding to use geothermal at your home or business it is common to test and receive results of a thermal conductivity test. The purpose of this test is to determine how conductive the earth’s surface is at a specific location.
When deciding whether or not to use geothermal on your home or commercial building, a very common litmus test is the results of what is called a “thermal conductivity test.” Often referred to as a “TC” test, or just simply a conductivity test, it is essentially a single well test on an already drilled geothermal loop. The purpose is to find out how conductive the earth’s surface is at a specific location. The test well will be a permanent installation, and can be used as a geothermal well in your project if you choose geothermal.
