"Geothermal" Heating & Cooling
Geothermal heat pumps
take advantage of the Earth's ability to store vast amounts of heat or cooling
the Earth. This includes soil, water, or air. "Geo" means
Earth and "thermal" refers to heat.
Geothermal heating systems "capture" this
steady supply of energy and "move" it from the Earth and through a
How Geothermal Heat Pumps Work
heat pump transfers heat or cooling from one source to another. Ground
temperature usually stays a constant temperature year round. Since
ground temperature is warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer,
ground source heat pumps transfer the Earth's energy to heat and cool
your house depending on what season.
ground source heat pumps transfer heat using a network of tubes called
"closed loops" which are filled with fluid. They run through the ground
in the vicinity of a building and the liquid absorbs the Earth's heat
or cooling energy. Then, this warmed or cooled liquid is pumped back
through the system providing heat to the building. Once the fluid
passes through this system and transfers its energy to the building, it
flows through the loop system back to the Earth and the process repeats
loop" systems transfer heat or cooling from well water or a pond. This
type of system is the most cost effective system if you have access to
a water source.
the summer, the ground source heat pump "reverses" into cooling mode to
provide you with the most energy and cost efficient air conditioning
comfort in every room of your house.
Ground source heat pumps can
use 50% less electricity than conventional electric heating and cooling
source heat pumps are more energy efficient than conventional electric
heating because they maximize the Earth's thermodynamic resources. This
benefit enables the ground source heat pump to produce more heat energy
output than electric energy input.
