Well drilling completion times vary from a half day to three days or longer. Drilling time is affected by many factors including time to set up, difficult drilling formations and weather. All of these factors vary from site to site and well to well. These are also factors that we have no control over. In addition, the time it takes to develop each well is different. Because of these variables there is no way for us to give a fixed time for well completion.

Imagine a 30ft truck that is 8ft wide and is towing a 30ft boat that is 8ft wide, the well is drilled where the trailer hitch would be. Additional room is required on both sides of the rig and water truck for the access and for the drilling process.
According to the EPA, Geothermal Wells operate with 75% greater efficiency than oil furnaces, 48% greater efficiency than gas furnaces and 40% greater efficiency than air source heat pumps. Some local utilities offer incentives for those who install a geothermal system. Federal tax credits are also available. Save the planet, save some money, with a geothermal well, you can’t lose.
We can install geothermal wells for heat pumps that use the earths heat to heat and cool your home. Here is how it works.
In a closed loop system, a series of pipes called a loop is installed in the ground. A water solution is then circulated through the pipes and is heated from the earths heat and transferred back into your home through your ventilation. In the summer months the heat is extracted from your home into the pipes and then transferred to the ground. It can also be used to heat water.
Open loop systems operate on the same principle as closed loop systems but rather than a series of loops, two wells are installed(supply and return). From the supply well, water is pumped from an aquifer, then circulated through the heat pump to cool or heat your home. The water is returned to the same aquifer via the return well. Wells from open loop systems can also be used for irrigation and/or domestic use.
Apple Valley Well Drilling is certified by IGSHPA in socket fusion and vertical loop installations. We perform a full range of geothermal well drilling and pump installations.

Gary Lydin, left, came to see Werner Woelk about the fire that destroyed Woelk’s home for over 40 years that overlooks north Selah, Wash., on July 9, 2012. Woelk, said he returned to his home the night of June 8th finding it engulfed in flames and his wife of 58 years missing. He found her safe about two hours later at a neighbors home.
