Geothermal heat pumps can cut your heating and cooling costs by 30% to 60% and provide hot water.
- Utilizing electrical energy, geothermal systems are extremely efficient.
- Geothermal systems use far less energy than air-to-air heat pumps.
- They typically deliver about three to four times more energy than they consume.
- Constant, even temperature and humidity control.
Safe and Clean
- No pilot lights, no chimney, no odors, and no fumes.
- Helps reduce both outdoor noise and air pollution.
- Geothermal heat pumps last longer because they are house indoors and protected from harsh weather conditions. No defrost cycles are needed, which means less stress on critical components and no loss of operating efficiency.
How Geothermal Heat Pumps Work
During the summer, the unit extracts heat from your home and transfers it back to the circulating liquid in the underground loop system, where it is transferred into the cooler earth.
During the winter, liquid circulating through the underground loop system absorbs heat from the earth and carries it to the geothermal unit which extracts the heat. It enhances the heat to a higher temperature and distributes it throughout the home.
Another energy source is ground water. At a depth of 30 feet, ground water remains at a constant temperature, within a single degree, throughout the year and may be utilized in lieu of an underground loop system.
