Heating and Cooling with Geothermal Energy

Welcome to Connecticut Wells

Geothermal Well Drilling Contractor CTGround water is found beneath the earth’s surface and is one of Connecticut’s most important resources, supplying water to thousands of wells serving homes and industries. Founded in the mid-1960s, Connecticut Wells has grown from a single-rig water well contractor into a state-of-the-art geothermal well drilling operation. Connecticut Wells is the geothermal well driller of choice for more than 400 homeowners and architects throughout the Northeast. Drilled wells are typically created using either top-head rotary style, table rotary, or cable tool drilling machines, all of which use drilling stems that are turned to create a cutting action in the formation, hence the term ‘drilling’. Drilled wells can get water from a much deeper level than dug wells can – often up to several hundred meters. Connecticut Wells uses the most modern drill rigs and technologies to operate safely, efficiently and cost-effectively. Tom Mahan is the founder and CEO of Connecticut Wells Inc, Tom’s geothermal and water well drilling experience totals more than 40 years. For more information on Tom, see Our History.
